IVY on 8th


restaurant & bar


Happy hour has never been happier thanks to IVY on 8th! By serving the best cocktails with the most popular comfort foods, this modestly modern establishment leaves you with a “can’t wait to come back here” feeling of satisfaction.

Word is spreading fast - evidenced by the many “regulars” frequenting between the hours of 4:00-7:00 (I’m one of them). The thriving of IVY is not surprising - they offer patrons a deal too good to refuse. Among all the overpriced, over-hyped celebrity-backed lounges, IVY stands out as a welcome oasis to those thirsting for a practical alternative.

Drink specials include $5.00 wines (Dark Horse Cabernet, DaVinci Pinot Grigio, LaMarca Prosecco), $5.00 beer (Shock Top, Bronx Ale, and Mother’s Milk) and $6.00 mixed drinks (White Pomegranate Cosmopolitan and Bohemian Rhapsody). Pair a handmade cocktail with one of the many mouth-watering appetizer options and you’ll never leave. Try their new Candy Cane Beet Chips, Lobster Springrolls, or my personal fav, Sweet and Spicy Calamari with a peanut ginger dipping sauce. Saturdays and Sundays offer a $30.00 entrée plus unlimited Bloody Marys, Mimosas, or Bellinis deal. You’ll never run out of culinary combinations.

After a long week of endless emails and conference calls, pit stop at IVY and refuel. The staff is welcoming and plentiful, continually circulating around the deftly designed bar and lounge. Because they employ the inspired business model that offers universal access to the waitstaff, service is both efficient and customer-centric.

Stop in this Saturday, June 7th and watch the 146th running of the Belmont Stakes on the multiple plasma screens at the bar. California Chrome is champing at the bit to be the first Triple Crown winner since 1978! Witness history in the making while enjoying the many delicious drinks and dishes featured at IVY. One visit will quickly turn into many.
