Standout Cider Bars NYC

Although Cider is omnipresent in most bars these days, some do better than others at collecting a diverse range of ciders from Manhattan and beyond. Here are the top 5 standouts:

Eli’s Night Shift
189 East Third Avenue
at 3d &79th Street
(Upper East Side)
(212) 879-7160
By day, this addition to the Eli Zabar empire offers the market’s signature sandwiches, pastries and other cafe items, but in the evening it becomes a bar dispensing local beers, ciders and accompanying bites. Vintage lighting and hexagonal tiles set a retro mood, while 60 feet of windows provide a prime view onto 79th Street.
126 Front St, Brooklyn
F Train to York Street Stop
(718) 243-9005
Iconic Brooklyn restaurant & bar serving organic, locally sourced dishes in a community built environment since 1998. Truly a swath of the cultural fabric of Dumbo, this friendly, funky artistic beauty is centrally located under the Manhattan Bridge and serves our signature Big Apple Hard Cider Brooklyn on tap. Superfine, indeed.
The Ear Inn
326 Spring Street
Between Washington & Greenwich St
All of our ciders are inspired by the neighborhoods in and around New York and the people who live here. Gods love We Deliver is an incredibly noble organization, located in SoHo, full of generosity, love and flavor. We created this beautifully balanced Sour Cherry Cider, we call SoHo, with the organization in mind. All proceeds go directly to God’s Love.

If you’d like to buy a round for a good cause, Big Apple Hard Cider Soho is exclusively available at the Ear Inn, or you can donate directly by clicking here.

McKittrick Hotel The Lodge at Gallow Green
542 W 27th Street
At 10th & 27th
(212) 564-1662
The Lodge at Gallow Green returns for the season atop the McKittrick Hotel as a cozy rooftop getaway. The bar and restaurant space has been redecorated as an inviting ski cabin, with comfort food and drinks to match. Guests can cozy up with plaid blankets by the outdoor firepit while sipping on Big Apple Hard Cider or hot cocktails like the Sleep No More while munching on pizzas made from a wood-burning oven.
5-14 51st Avenue
Off the 7 Train
At Vernon & Jackson Ave
(LIC / Queens)
