Collegial yet refined, The Ready at Moxy East Village feels like an escape from the New York daily grind. The eclectic décor (strung lights, a vine-strewn mural, a bar made of plastic milk crates) and unique food and beverage offerings create a relaxed rooftop experience—like a coveted New York City backyard. The retractable glass walls and roof allow for all-season panoramic views of the East Village and beyond.

Inspired by a casual backyard garden in the East Village, the lush rooftop bar transitions to a new era, celebrating the culture and energy that surrounds the neighborhood and transforming from day to night. With a beer garden vibe, the lounge and seating have an eclectic and impromptu feeling, with a mix of different colors and styles. A collage of multi-colored crates have been assembled into shelving for the back bar. The bar itself has a metal top and reclaimed wood bar die—a material featured throughout the roof. A green wall has climbing vines that reveal a hand-painted mural by En Víu that pays homage to iconic historical figures of the counterculture, whose portraits are superimposed on a map of the East Village.

Moxy East Village’s The Ready evokes a coveted New York City backyard, with murals, planters, casual seating, and a bar made of stacked plastic milk crates. A retractable glass roof and walls allow for year-round use.

The Ready welcomes semi-private groups as small as 11, or up to 150 for a reception-style buyout. Expanded catering options and open bar packages are available for an event tailored to your unique celebration. Please call 212.268.1488 or email to start planning.

Cans and coolers highlight the drink offerings, just like every great backyard gathering. Local favorites including Bronx Brewery and City Light Lager, along with canned wine and sparkling options, find their way into mix-and-match tableside coolers, while classic fresh and frozen cocktails serve up a stronger vibe.

Made-to-order fresh tacos are sure to satisfy, plus classic bar snacks that pair perfectly with brews and beverages of all kinds.

Contactless ordering and payment available, as is traditional service.
