Locals and visitors to the East Village neighborhood can now enjoy sharable plates, draft beer and a lineup of innovative cocktails, all in the cozy confines of WhipHand American Brasserie + Beer Bank.

The 2,000 square foot space, styled after the traditional French brasseries found across Europe, showcases a sleek, contemporary look that also allows the industrial framework of the building to shine through. Small tables line the quaint front patio for outdoor dining, while white brick and wrought iron fixtures take precedence once you step through the doors. WhipHand features an open-kitchen concept that gives diners a sneak peek at their meal being prepared.
