The Tippler

425 West 15th Street

Chelsea Market is popular for its diverse restaurants and food stalls, ranging from fresh lobster and seafood to tacos, crepes, and currywurst. Underneath the street level is a less visible but equally popular destination: The Tippler, a cellar-like bar with fixtures made of reclaimed wood and other industrial materials from the nearby High Line. The drink menu features throwback-era cocktails with cheeky names (Montauk Makeout; Poppy Don’t Preach) and a beer selection including seasonal drafts on rotation. Pace yourself by adding a little something from the small plates menu to your order, say, a cheddar and scallion dip or the crack mix (rye bagel chips, corn nuts, and other crunchy treats).
