The beers are big at this clandestine tavern, where the year-round outdoor space welcomes smokers. – The Scene
You'll have to walk through the upstairs restaurant (where the walls are painted to resemble a Dickensian village) to reach the stairs leading to the bar below. In the small lower-level speakeasy, the quaint look of dark wood and stained-glass windows is offset by a gigantic, attention-grabbing TV. Patrons tend to be few, but ESPN and Comedy Central keep solo customers company. The smoker's paradise is a backyard with umbrella tables for the summer and space heaters for the winter.
The 32-ounce beers go down easy with a juicy half-pound burger, a muffaletta sandwich or crispy catfish platter, imported from the restaurant upstairs. As one of the less-traveled bars on Smith Street, it's not the best place to mingle, but the cheap beer and wine and sufficient seating can easily accommodate a private happy-hour crew.
Right at Home... – You feel right at home in this cute little Smith Street "Village". The staff is welcoming and even the friendly owner came over to greet us. The portions are huge and inexpensive. The burgers are terrific. I've actually made the trip from the upper east side a few times now because I have enjoyed the experience every time. The Zagat review just confirmed what I was thinking in that this "village" stands out on Smith Street...
Home Sweet Home – I've been to Village 4 times since it's opened. Each time I visit, it gets better and better. The menu is great and the prices are even better. The Turkey burger is delicious, best one I've had in a long time. Also the Village 247 Salad and the Beef N Peachy Salad is excellent.
They have an outdoor garden which is qreat, especially for the smokers. Village also has a great little pub downstairs. I guarentee you will feel right at home at Village 247.
