Bar Veloce is a cozy wine bar for that intimate date or just to get away after a long day at the office. They offer a variety of wines by the glass or by the bottle. They also feature lite fare to compliment your glass of wine or cocktail. This is the perfect location for that small gathering. From the Hilton Garden Inn start out going southeast on W 28th St toward 6th Ave/Avenue of the Americas, turn right onto Broadway, turn right to stay on Broadway, turn left onto E 23rd St, turn right onto 2nd Ave, Bar Veloce is on the right just past E 12th ST.
An early proponent of the tiny Italian sandwich, the original Bar Veloce squeezes considerable style and substance into a small area with well-crafted panini and tramezzini washed down with easy-drinking wines that mostly sell for less than $10 a glass. But the Chelsea outpost has something its long, skinny East Village sibling lacks: space. And should one inexplicably tire of drinking Italian wine, there’s now a choice of grappas, amaros, and even sake—a perfect match for the anchovy-and-mozzarella house bruschetta. Veloce’s newly renovated interior is admittedly impressive. All the signature Veloce furnishings are still evident-wine bottles hang on wall-mounted racks, halogen tubes emit a pleasant dim orange light, a solo TV plays black and white movies .
