  • A standout cocktail is the Great Jones, a blend of Famous Grouse Scotch, Fee's Black Walnut Bitters and maple syrup served neat.
  • The Wren spelled backwards is nerw eht, which is Welsh for "party time."
  • Jeremy Lin may be a terrible bartender, but in his defense he probably just can't see you through his trendy false frames.
  • We love this East Village cocktail bar - not only are the drinks delicious and expertly crafted, but the food is pretty tasty as well. Order The 7th, and get the fish and chips if you're hungry.
  • Order off-the-menu cocktails, always. They make a mean Sazerac and Mint Julep.
  • After a drink or two, you may want to order a side of fries with malt vinegar mayo for the table. Do it.
  • A wren is a type of bird.
  • This is the bar that all the beautiful club people go to when they just want to go to a bar. The foods surprisingly delicious and it's practically impossible to have a bad time.
  • To start, get the Great Jones cocktail (maple and walnut flavored) along with a side of fries and malt vinegar mayo. Then, dig into the burger. One of the best pub burgers I've had in NYC.
  • Get the Old Fashioned.
  • The Wren's official hashtag is #THEWREN.
  • Can get crowded, so make sure you go all the way to the end of the bar or stay up front...the middle is a death trap
  • They have Vodka from Wisconsin!!!
  • Try the cocktail with the pink peppercorns. YUM!
  • The Gren-quela doesn't disappoint
  • Solid brunch menu. For food, get the avocado toast and kale salad with soft-boiled eggs. For drinks, get the gin & juice or the weekender.
  • Can someone tell the guy in the plaid shirt to stop yelling
  • Great place for drinks on a #wrensday night!
  • Lots of zeros. Overflow from phebes
  • Steak tartare. duh.
