Chelsea Market is a popular destination for its diverse restaurants and food stalls, ranging from fresh lobster and seafood to tacos, crepes, and currywurst, but underneath the street level is a less visible but equally popular destination: The Tippler, a subterranean cocktail bar where the interior and fixtures are made of reclaimed wood and other industrial materials from the nearby HighLine. The popular bar features throwback-era cocktails with modern-day names (Pea Diddy, anyone?), as well as a cocktail of the day (the surprise of it all keeps you coming back for more). Hungry? No problem; the bar has a small plates menu, too, which includes charcuterie and cheese boards and panini.
