NEW YORK CITY | Proletariat is one of those blink and you’ll miss it places, located in a very narrow space in the East Village. The bar is welcoming and cozy, with a large bar dominating the space, bar seating along with a few high tables, exposed brick, wood, and warm, low lighting. It’s not quite as hidden and small as it once was, since expanding to the street front, but still seats only around 20 people.

Proletariat proclaims to specialise in “rare, new and unusual beers”, and one look at the 10 taps and 30 or so bottles reveals that this is very much the case. If you’re into your craft beer and looking for a place that’s as close as guaranteed to have something you’ve not tried before, this is the place to visit. Think German beers like Mahr’s Bräu Mastodon and Engelszell Gregorius Trappistenbier, American beers like Wandering Star Mild at Heart, or international collaborations like the Stillwater and Mikkeller Our Side. There aren’t tasting paddles offered here, so you’ll have to commit to what you want to drink, but you can get tasters before you buy.

For those who don’t like beer, the dedication to drinks that aren’t beer is impressive. Think natural ferment wines from small, local winemakers and fantastic cocktails made with artisan spirits. For food it’s upscale bar favorites like a beer braised bratwurst sandwich, and a lamb burger on baked pretzel rolls.

Prices are higher than most of New York’s craft beer spots, but it’s something we can excuse given the rarity of some of these beers, and dedication to maintaining such a quality list.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
