The Inside Scoop on Westchester Bars

We asked local barkeeps where they like to imbibe, and they answered aplenty.



With all its custom brews on tap, you won’t want to leave the Tasting Room at Captain Lawrence Brewing Company.

Amy Negri, bartender at Vintage 1891 Kitchen in Larchmont: “I like to go see my friend Sue Vitello at Moderne Barne. I just really like the bartenders—they’re really sweet.”

Heather Rodmeyer, bartender at Moderne Barn in Armonk: “I go to The Lazy Lounge and Brazen Fox. They’re a lot of fun—good vibes and a great atmosphere.”

Amanda Iasillo, bartender at The Lazy Lounge in White Plains: “I would definitely say either The Craftsman Ale House because of the beer selection, or Ron Blacks since it’s right down the block when I get off of work.”

Mac Riodan, bartender at The Craftsman Ale House in Harrison: “Birdsall House and Peekskill Brewery. On top of the large beer selection at Birdsall, the food is top-notch. Peekskill also has some of the best beer in Westchester, and it puts out world-class beer from a friendly brewery.” 

Taylor Brown, bartender at Peekskill Brewery in Peekskill: “I like Gleason’s a lot, it’s a really nice little cocktail bar. They have a great selection of spirits, very skilled and knowledgeable bartenders, use a lot of fresh ingredients, not to mention a quaint little pub atmosphere.”

Garry Leavy, bartender at Gleason’s in Peekskill: “I’d have to say Bridge View Tavern. It’s in a great location and has a lot of good beers on tap. And it’s always busy when I go in there, which is obviously a sign they’re doing something right!” 

Mike Marrone, bartender at Bridge View Tavern in Sleepy Hollow: “I like Lucy’s Lounge. They take care of the customers really well. The bartenders know your name, and it has a great selection for craft beer—the IPAs are always changing.” 

Mark, bartender at Lucy’s Lounge in Pleasantville: “Captain Lawrence Brewing Company. It’s a very laid-back, relaxed atmosphere. You get to sample their selection of great beers—I like the Kölsch.”
