    Before the cocktail revolution, these guys were doing an amazing job, and still do. You only get a drink if you get a seat.-Jimmy Bradley , Top Chef

    Trivia: "angel's share" is a term that describes the wine that escapes through evaporation during the barrel aging process. (I learned this at a bourbon tasting down in New Orleans)

    Go through the Japanese restaurant and to the unmarked door that faces you as you get to the hostess stand. No parties more than 4. The specialty cocktails are impressive here.

    Go up the stairs and into the noodle bar. There's a discreet door on the left that takes you into a beautiful cocktail bar.

    One of the older speakeasies on Manhattan, it's matured beyond the frenetic, Wall St scene that plagues some similar venues in the city. Definitely a must-do on classy nights in the East Village.

    If you're here for drinks, Storny Weather. The whiskey / strawberry thing sounds exotic but it's super girly.

    Going nuts trying to find it? You're not alone. Enter through Yokocho and take the unmarked door on the left and enter into another world. Order the Stormy Weather and make interesting conversation.

    True Japanese mixology bar. Great flavors and exotic mixes. Get the Tennessee Waltz even if your'e not a Whisky drinker. The lychee drink is also an A+. Great chill date place.

    Walk right through the restaurant into this semi-secret room & sit on a stool looking out a window. Order a special drink from the menu (not your usual), and sip it slowly

    We love the private club feel... and the lack of crowds make us feel like we’re part of an elite team of savvy cocktailistas. We’re particularly partial to their take on the Grasshopper. Read more

    Don't be a rich snob and try to get in with more than 4 people. They will embarrass you (appropriately) and ask you to leave. NYU students, don't come in drunk because this isn't a sports bar.

    The grand-daddy of New York cocktail bars, it's not the best or the classiest. Still, as the place that inspired Milk and Honey, it's earned a spot on this list.

    Still one of the best places to have a drink in the city, especially while it's still light outside. :) Just don't go with your entire posse. Best for a small intimate group of 2-3.

    Not your typical Japanese. Edgy exciting sub culture. Its both underground and high class at the same time. Talented bartenders and very creative drinks. Highly recommended. Perfect for a rainy night.

    If you like martinis, try the Serenity. My other fave is the Quintessence (Jasmine infused vodka). Request a table to people watch from the window. No parties over 4 people.
