Carl F.Carl Figueiredo: This place is probably the best all-around 'speakeasy' style spot I've come across in NYC. Not overly pretentious, drinks are phenomenal & creative, & right around the block from great Chinese food!!

Jason C.Jason Chuang: Check out their speakeasy within a speakeasy. La Isla Escondida will only be open during the summer. If it's like their last popup 1919 it'll definitely be worth it.
