Two small people opened a tiny place called Pocket Bar NYC.
Sometimes at Pocket Bar...we realize that we don't exist without the tremendous kindness and energy of the people who come in as guests and employees.
Yelp has been a constant supporter and they were kind enough to bump us over to Buzzfeed.
Check it out below...
The surprises come very fast and with beautiful fury, and they have created the current version of the space. We're excited to see where it goes from here.
With Humble Appreciation,
The Best Wine Bar In Every State For When You Want To Get Classy Drunk. Wine time, all the time.

Alice Mongkongllite / BuzzFeedQuestion: Is there anything better than getting wine drunk in a cozy bar, and then feasting on delicious snacks?Annie DalyNo. No, there is not.
To help you pick the best mom-drunk spot near you, I asked the people at Yelp for the best wine bar in every state. (To get the data, they used an algorithm that looked at the number of reviews plus the star rating for every business on Yelp.)
So here are the top spots in every state where nice and wine drunk is the only way to be.
32. Pocket Bar, New York, New York
“Warm lighting, cozy ambiance, teddy grahams in lieu of salted peanuts, and fab and friendly bartenders. Highly recommended for a small intimate group of friends or as a date spot.” — Yelper Elizabeth Z.
We are very excited at the return of Sabine Rosé from Charles Beiler! We took the last of the 2013 stock last Summer and now have the first 2014 juice available this Spring.
Tart and aromatic red berry fruit and crisp acidity are the calling cards of this classic Provencal Rosé. Its just good so drink it!
And to make it easier to drink all our wines, we are now offering 9oz pours in addition to our standard 6oz glass.
The "quartino" has become a fairly common unit but our 9oz carafe is approximately a third of a standard bottle(slightly more at 266ml). Fun!
You may also have noticed a new face behind the bar.
Zeev has been an outstanding presence in the space and is taking Tuesdays as a regular night. He will certainly be popping up on other nights, as well.
Thank you to everyone who has enjoyed Pocket Bar's addition to Hell's Kitchen. We value your patronage and realize there are many alternatives in the neighborhood and City at large. Thank you for choosing to spend time with us.
Drink and live well.
If you've met Suzy Darling, you're not surprised by her refreshing take on hospitality.
She's partnered with Ari and Avi from Brooklyn's Lost Tribes Brew to offer Pocket Porter for the cold weather season.
This rich porter features cold brewed coffee from Ithaca's Copper Horse Coffee Roasters.
And to raise the humor stakes, Mr FYF IPA has also been added.
Yes, that does stand for Fuck Your Face. Hoppy goodness abounds...
Tom rocks the stick Wednesday-Friday, Suzy Saturday-Monday, and Moses has taken on Tuesdays!
Happy New Year 2015 from Suzy and crew.
