A Trip to Chumley's

The bar at Chumley's

Tables where people have carved things.

Last night, I took a trip to Chumley's, a historic bar in the West Village. I've been there before, but it's always nice to go to a bar that has been around since the 1920's. Since it's winter, they had their fireplace going, which you could immediately sense when you walked in and took a breath. Chumley's is a beautiful bar that everyone should go to at least once. Oh, and at $2, their assorted bread basket is a deal for those who want to load up on the carbs.

they should really have some sort of map though in order to find the place - no sign whatsoever!

well, back in the day, it was a speakeasy, so the entrance couldn't be too conspicuous. i actually think people entered through the courtyard on barrow st.

finding it is part of the fun! sorry that i missed it. coop board meeting prevailed...

did you see the dogs? usually there are a couple of labradors hanging out near the fire.

that's the first time since the smoking ban that i've gone home with my hair smelling like smoke. granted it was fireplace smoke, but still. :)

Looks like a cool place. Damn I wish there was a smoking ban in Michigan and Pennsylvania bars!

aughasdlkjfsd. .. there is no smoking ban in chicago and the smell of smoke on my clothes this morning was enough to make me puke. that and all the beer i drank last night.

i've got to say that as a non-smoker, the smoking ban is the best thing to happen to this city in a long time. i'm sure there are better things, but it sounds better saying it the other way.

i have to say, as an occasional smoker, that i agree with tien. it doesn't bother me that i can't smoke in a bar...in fact, i hate going home stinking not just of my own smoke, but of others, as well.
