WE ARE Ferns

We're a neighborhood bar. We're a casual restaurant. We've got the good music and the staff that knows your name. We're that East Village spot with all the plants outside. And inside. We're the guys that are gonna tell you something about a secret garden, an oasis in the concrete jungle, a space where you can really actually breathe out here, but the truth is, most plants only emit that extra oxygen during daylight hours, which means you better come through for happy hour, or we're just another watering hole with a decent pinterest board. 

So join us for dinner or join us for drinks. Join us for three glasses of wine, a bowl of french fries, and then one more glass of wine. We don't care. We're going to show you a menu of fine cocktails, delicious food, some of the best beers around, and then let you figure it out. Just know that Chef Matt Oliver is not here to disappoint. Think comfort classics with some savvy New York street style. It's New American bar food, folks, and we do it damn well.

Daily happy hours, weekly kitchen specials, and monthly comedy shows. Come for the live music, or just come to drop the spare keys for your roommate. It's all good. We've got a basement bar room for private events, too. Birthdays, baby showers, album drops, staff parties -- you tell us. Seriously, tell us anything. We're bartenders, so we're always at least pretending to listen.
