    Cocktails are well crafted and balanced. The bartender fixed me a gin/ginger drink. Speakeasy's fascinate me and I love the secret entrance and dim lights. Great for intimate and quiet conversations.

    Super difficult to get in tonight. Ask to be seated in the bar room vs the library. Good cocktails and very good bar food- the cheese toast, the scotch egg and the ricotta is amazing.

    Also within the William Hotel is the speakeasy, Raines Law Room at the William, has a book-lined library room with a roaring fire, antique furniture and a hushed atmosphere. Read more

    Oh it's dark, noir-ish. My favorite. Try the Old-fashioned (feel like John Hamm) if you are into it. No secret entrance. Ask, they point. Heavy velvet curtain, I fumbled a lot. Great food menu too.

    Hands down one of the best speakeasies in manhanttan! Luxury vintage atmosphere, amazing cocktails (especially the spicy one), and good looking mixologists. Take your out of town frans here to impress

    Very romantic. Make sure to make a reservation. On the main floor they have seating with opaque curtains to make it feel more intimate. Cocktails are always well-crafted.

    Classy, cozy and convivial quarters for well crafted cocktails. Fabulous original artwork on the walls, enhances the sophisticated atmosphere. Enjoy drinks at The Shakespeare below first, if waiting.

    I'm not sure if I prefer this location or the one on 17th Street. This one has more of a secretive and fancy vibe, like some Illuminati library. The cocktails are excellent of course.

    Great intimate spot with superb cocktails, great service and fun vibe. The spicy section really is, so unless you really want that burn stick with normal or strong

    Good environment, but I was definitely unhappy the the service. In one hour I was able to get one drink. I couldn’t get the chance to eat, as it was impossible to be served by the distracted waiters.

    Love this cozy cocktail spot. Superb service, great atmosphere and delicious cocktails. Jimmy knows his stuff. This location is smaller than flat iron spot.

    Menu changes often but started w/a Hat in Hand - a well-balanced rum cocktail - before moving onto a make-your-own Old Fashioned (50/50 bourbon/Rye for me).

    Great relaxed vibe in this dimly lit and hidden speakeasy. Cocktails are $16, on the higher end but delicious.

    Ring the bell and enter someone's saloon in the 1920s. Delicious cocktails, $15 across the board. Great gem in Murray hill.

    A gorgeous speakeasy above an English Pub that serves $20 cocktails to remind you that you're still in NYC.

    The bar was full so I was offered place at the aisle which was fine. However the lady was too concerned I approached the bar to place the order and forbid to come to the bar

    It seems they don't do same day reservations, or at least not reservations only a couple of hours in advance. Once you do get in, try a Pear of Aces.
