    Go upstairs to the Japanese restaurant and go left through the unmarked door. Quiet, intimate, and great drinks. Loved the Smoke in Your Face whiskey cocktail - it's exactly what it sounds like.

    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.

    This Japanese run speakeasy always keep good control on the atmosphere: music with perfect volume, never over crowded. Whisky fans should try their smoke get on your face. *Off the menu: earl grey gin

    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)

    You will wait for a seat but it's worth it to try ANY of the drinks, especially the 'smoke gets in your eyes'. Go later on a week night for faster seating. Worth the wait either way!

    This hidden bar impresses even the most jaded New Yorkers. A little Tokyo gem with all the right Japanese sensibilities...but don't be shocked if they're out of your Japanese whiskey of choice

    Very good cocktails. Nice & cosy atmosphere if you don't seat next to the main door as the long queue of people waiting to get in keeps the door opened and you can hear the noise from the restaurant.

    Hidden inside a often loud japanese tapas restaurant. Good place to take your out of town friends to, because this spot basically defines the whole speakeasy experience. Good drinks, small cozy space.

    NY has made me love speakeasies. Speakeasies have made me truly appreciate great cocktails. Absolutely delicious cocktails are certainly found here. Highly recommended; if you can find the door..

    Definitely check out this tucked away gem. The location has great vibes and the volume is maintained at a low murmur. Smokey whiskey literally had a fragrant glass of smoke with whiskey. So cool.

    This speakeasy has a secret speakeasy inside it Thursday-Saturday. You actually use a separate secret entrance! Make sure you check it out! Try Sharaku instead of the Village Yokocho 😉🤐

    The rules: no reservations, no groups larger than four, no standing room, and no yelling. Ascend the stairs and enter through the unmarked door to the left of the sushi counter in Yokocho restaurant. Read more

    With its dark, soft-yellow lighting, intimate space and creative cocktails, this speakeasy's got all the makings for a romantic East Village evening. Try the Quintessence cocktail. Read more

    This is my favorite cocktail place in the city. Don't miss it. Walk upstairs, find the unmarked door right by the stairs and walk into what is also one of the coziest spots for a drink.

    Smoke Gets In Your Eyes may be unlike any cocktail you've ever had. The drinks are incredible and definitely worth the price and/or the wait. Keep your party at four or less or they won't seat you.

    Amazing, incredible craft cocktails. Evidence is a great off-menu cocktail made with their house-infused Earl Gray Gin. The Autumn Leaves is my personal favorite.

    Best date spot. There's a wait but never really more than 20 min. Drinks are great, snacks are great. It's super cozy and intimate. Hands down my favorite cocktail bar in NYC. Window seat's the best.

    There's a sibling Japanese whiskey, scotch, and bourbon bar now open two doors to the left. Walk up the unmarked stairwell. Get a scotch based Islay Sour.

    This speakeasy housed in Village Yokocho has some of the best cocktails to be found in the city. The Serenity (citrus vodka, lychee liquor) and the Cheek to Cheek are some of the sweeter options.

    My favorite cocktail bar in NYC because I love fruity and nicely made cocktail drinks. They also have an extensive whiskey list. The bartenders are extremely knowledgeable and can make custom drinks.

    Go up the stairs and through the Japanese restaurant to find this intimate cocktail den. It’s tough to get a seat, but once you do, you’ll be in heaven. Sun-Wed: 6pm-1:30am | Thur-Sat, 6pm-2am

    Some of my absolute favorite cocktails in NYC. The "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" is fantastic, but you should really try the "Flirtibird" with the shiso+yuzu - truly unusual and exceptional flavors. 👌

    The moon at noon cocktail taste like a worthers candy! so good! I also really enjoyed the old fashioned. If you dont get a spot right away just head next door and down some sake while you wait.

    Hidden away, this place has a menu that's rich in every drink category, each drink with a story. The mood is always laid back, which makes for a great place to catch up with friends.

    An awesome speakeasy-style bar hidden in the back of a Japanese restaurant in the East Village. We love their exotic cocktails, especially the Summer Breeze cocktail off the specials menu.

    In a most unexpected place, busy, but we had no problem getting a great corner spot to get cozy in. Friendly staff knowledgable about their cocktails & happy to recommend some. Try the Dark & Stormy!

    NYC's best speakeasy. The drinks are a work of art. Be sure to try the Nardis (white truffles and pear) cocktail- it doesn't disappoint.

    The menu's featured drink is a "Speak Low"; a blend of two rums, sherry, and an amazing macha green tea as an homage to Japanese tea ceremony in cocktail form. Don't leave without one. Drink!

    Awesome spot overall! The staff here is super friendly and responsive and the drinks are amazing. Try to get here before 1030 or you might not have a spot without a long wait..

    Go into the Village Yokocho restaurant, at the top of the stairs on the left hand side there is an unmarked door that leads to the bar!

    A true speakeasy feel. The side room is great for small groups of friends catching up. The Smoke Gets In Your Eyes is an experience to order and drink. A welcoming campfire in a glass.

    "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" and "Boulevardier" are both phenomenal. The attention to detail is unmatched in this amazing and quaint speakeasy/cocktail bar. I can't recommend this place enough.

    Entrance is tucked away inside a Japanese restaurant on 2nd floor. Grab a seat at the bar! Delicious cocktails - lives up to the hype.

    One of the top speakeasy spots in the city. Second only to Attaboy in my opinion, and that has everything to do with bartender personality and ambience. Cocktails here are phenomenal.

    New favorite drink, Moanin' truly lives up to it's name. Plus it comes in a really cool dome shaped cup. You can never go wrong with Japanese Yamazaki whiskey. I love this place.

    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!

    My favorite speakeasy in Manhattan. Delicious cocktails, delightful Japanese service, tasty nibbles. Come here with a hot date or girlfriends. Max group size of four.

    Holy fancy drinks. Definitely worth popping in for a cocktail experience, as well as being in an intimate, hidden speakeasy setting. Expensive, but the drinks were worth it.

    Classic NYC cocktail bar. Speakeasy vibe with a Japanese aesthetic. Highly unique cocktails. Excellent collection of Japanese whiskies and sakes as well.

    My friend ordered the "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" 💨 and said it tastes like a barbecue. You know when you're drinking at a barbecue and the smoke keeps getting in your eyes? Yeah, that feeling. 😂

    Speakeasy w/a secret entrance above a bookstore in The Village, infused liquids & craft cocktails, beautiful picture window looking out over the Village especially lovely on a snowy winter night

    "In contrast to the loud and bustling sushi bar on the other side of the thin door, Angel’s Share has a candlelit vibe and soothing jazz, is quiet and much like a traditional speakeasy." Read more

    A very asian style speakeasy. Drinks are a bit light on volume in my opinion. A good place to go when you have no reservations anywhere else and every other bar is full for the night.

    In this shrine to the cocktail, Japanese bartenders quietly build drinks, many of which lean classic and spare. This is a bar with rules—and not the tongue-in-cheek kind. Read more
