Bar Belly

OPENED561 DAYS AGO

The Lower East Side bar Leadbelly has reopened its doors under a new name – Bar Belly.

Bar Belly marks a new chapter with a revamped food menu, but don’t worry – you can still get your oysters and specialty cocktails. It joins the other great bars you can find in Lower Manhattan.

The Spot:

While the bar has changed its name and features new dishes on the menu, Bar Belly is still recognizable for locals. The white exterior with blue and white shade remains, as well as the large copper bar inside. Once the drinks are flowing, you might want to take a turn at the bar’s built-in piano or dive into the costume chest for a different outfit-of-the-day.

The Food:

In addition to the raw bar selection of East and West Coast oysters, Bar Belly now has various shareable dishes, including bigeye tuna tartare, Moroccan spiced lamb meatballs, and Portuguese octopus spiked with harissa. Oh, and Mondays just got a whole lot better, with Bar Belly’s Mussel Monday, offering an all-you-can-eat array of fresh mussels.

The Drinks:

Specialty cocktails are the main attraction at Bar Belly, such as Ms. Jackson (Mezcal, rum, pineapple, lime), Cucumber Julep (Vodka, cucumber, lime, mint) and Penicillin (Whiskey, lemon, ginger syrup, honey, spritz of smoke).

The Damage:

Bar Belly’s all-you-can-eat array of fresh mussels costs $15, while you can get $1 oysters and half-priced drinks at their daily happy hour.

In a Nutshell:

With great cocktails and dollar oysters at happy hour, what more could you ask for? Live entertainment? Jazz? Comedy? Well, they have that too.
