Wythe Hotel - The Ides Bar

Posted on

Paul Evans Wythe Hotel Ides BarWith the cooler weather among us, it’s kind of tough to justify any outdoor bars or eateries. But that’s no reason to swear off them all together. Just over the bridge (or one subway stop) lies Williamsburg’s Wythe Hotel. Basically, it’s the spot to impress any out-of-towners, your lady or perhaps even yourself.

Across the street from the Brooklyn Brewery, the Wythe’s Ides Bar is a great place for some Friday night cocktails or some afternoon/evening weekend drinks. With the last call just prior to 2am, it’s the conversation, decor, fairly priced drinks and of course, the view that make this a winner in our eyes. As any self respecting gent knows, sneakers and a hoody are not evening bar attire, however, whatever you decide to wear won’t hold you back at this unpretentious watering hole. Of course, going suited up with a pair of Paul Evans is certain to improve your experience. 

Paul Evans Wythe Hotel Ides BarThey do not serve food, do not offer a bottle service, and there is a chance you may have to line up in the foyer. But only for a measly five or so minutes. Once upstairs, everyone from the bar staff to the doormen offer a welcoming almost-friendly vibe. Our party ordered several cocktails, bottled and draft beers, as well as some standard mixed drinks. The prices do not scream “Manhattan views” even though they don’t get much better. The barmen showed skill and knowledge without emitting a pungent “I’m cooler than you” aroma, something all too common in this neighborhood. With the holidays getting closer and closer, keep this one in your back pocket for when it’s time to meet her parents or further impress the in-laws when they’re in town.  Music is at an appropriate but never deafening level, giving you chance to talk with those nearby. The crowd noise does increase with the head count and the amount of flowing booze as the night eases on.

We recommend you arrive an hour or so before sunset, get yourselves a great table by the window inside and enjoy the night. We might even be understanding if you popped outside for a selfie or two.

We recommend ordering a full size below your regular US dress shoe size.

Like most other Italian brands (Gucci, Prada, Tod's), our shoes run a full size larger than US dress shoe brands.

Extra room in your toes is by design. Think sleek and sexy.

Resist the urge to press down on your toes to assess the fit. There's always going to be extra room because of the shape of our shoe lasts.

You have the perfect fit when:

There is enough room across the widest part of your foot and your heel sits comfortably in the shoe. If you can confidently strut your stuff in the shoes, you're good to go.

And don't worry about minor heel slippage or extra room in the your toes!

Minor heel slippage is normal in a new pair of leather-soled shoes.

After you break in your new shoes, the heel slippage will stop. Our Italian calfskin leather needs a chance to conform to your foot. If it doesn't, email us and we'll make it right.
