    My favorite showy evening spot. Amazing whiskey selection. Elegant environment and a nice view. -Jacqueline Lombard, Top Chef

    I always sit in back or near a window. watch snow. bonus points if you score the couch all the way in back: that's my spot

    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.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Get yourself a whiskey.

    Go to Angel's Share when it's snowing outside. Try to get a window seat. And keep your voices down.

    Get Mack the knife if you like gin, spice, citrus, and Ginger. It's perfect.

    This place has some amazing specialty cocktails, which you can read about in their hefty cocktail binder. Each cocktail has a different story!

    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.

    Winner of Best Martini in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Enjoy the view while getting perfectly mixed martinis.

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

    Dens · May 21, 2011
  • Ray L.

    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.

    Ray Lin · March 12, 2013

    Lovely little lounge serving up cocktail masterpieces. Come here on a dreary day and order the Stormy Weather to fit the mood.

    New York Habitat · November 16, 2011
  • Devon H.

    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.

    Devon Ho · August 1, 2010
  • John S.

    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

    speakeasy that few know of in east village. good drinks, wouldn't make it the whole night though. try sake bombs nearby if she's cool :)

    you won't go wrong with any drink you order.

    Buhlexin · July 21, 2010

    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 · January 9, 2012

    Hidden "speakeasy" martini bar. Very cool

    Jason Monma · July 21, 2010
  • Barbara H.

    get the Tennessee waltz cocktail, superbe!

    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.

    Gaze out the window while enjoying an exotic plum wine at this drink parlor nestled inside a Japanese restaurant.

  • Jeremy L.

    Amazing view of Stuyvesant Square and excellent cocktails, including one of the city’s best grasshoppers.

    Jeremy Le Van · October 20, 2011
  • Zack S.

    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.

    Zack Sheppard · October 14, 2011
  • April Joy C.

    EVERYTHING is good. Sit at the window, people watch and judge all the passersby that don't know what's UP.

    April Joy Castillo · May 17, 2011
  • Anna Liza B.

    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.

    Anna Liza Bella · March 19, 2010
  • TJ P.

    If you're a fan cucumbers. try the Royal Flush martini. It's crisp and refreshing. Read more

    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.

    Alex · November 22, 2013
  • Lizz S.

    The best Manhattan in the city, hands down. Ask for Whistle Pig Rye.

    Lizz Spano · October 4, 2012
  • Charles B.

    Weird spot. Get the sashimi plate and some sake. And get weird.

    Charles B · November 9, 2011
  • Kristi E.

    The grandaddy of hidden cocktail bars. Be patient - there is usually a wait - but the fantastic specialty cocktails make it worth while.

    Kristi Evans · August 26, 2011
  • Melody H.

    Damn good cocktails. Japanese bar men. Side door from Village Yokocho.

    Melody Han · August 17, 2011
  • Teresa

    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.

    Fantastic cocktails. Some of the most inventive and unique drinks in NYC

    Cool speakeasy. Located inside a Japanese restaurant, off to a side door. Sit by the window for a nice view of st. Marks. Food and drinks are wonderfully crafted! Mmm Delish!

    lisa besserman · October 24, 2012
  • Joy🌟 R.

    The Quintessence is delish... Flavorful, fruity but not to sweet!

    Joy🌟 Reines · April 7, 2011
  • Spade V.

    When you go up the stairs, you make a uturn and push the wall like you know what you're doing. Wait to be seated so you don't look awkward.

    Spade Vasquez · January 18, 2010
  • Phillip R.

    The Tennessee Waltz, a drink with roasted thyme. Om nom nom nom.

    Phillip Retuta · January 12, 2010
  • Ben M.

    Mack the Knife is not on the menu anymore but they will still make it if you ask. Well worth it!

    Elegant date spot and delicious drinks. Tried the cheek to cheek and serenity- first drink tasted like raspberry cheesecake...

    Elegant bar, insanely delicious cocktails!!!

  • Samantha K.

    Great date spot! Be ready to wait, especially on the weekend.

    Kind of mediocre actually. Disappointing.

    Steven Benario · December 30, 2012
  • Betty

    It's easy to fall in love with a single drink at this place but always challenge yourself to try a new cocktail--just to fall in love all over again. Old fav: stormy weather. New fav: moanin'

    Betty · October 26, 2012
