    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.

    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

    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.

    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..

    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 😉🤐

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. 👌

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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..

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    "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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Anything and everything here by Shingo & crew is great. You can always ask for a recommendation if you're overwhelmed by the choices. You will enjoy the fantastic cocktails here.

    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.

    right in the heart of st marks with such talented bartenders. come after work and snag a table by the bar to see the bartenders do their tricks to your drink ;)

    The bartenders at this cozy cocktail nook have certainly refined their craft to a high level. There's a cocktail for every taste here and then some. Great date spot.

    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!

    The bartenders here are amazing and really know the ins and outs of their craft. Great hidden spot to grab a few drinks at (if you can find it)!

    Going with the Japanese whiskey is always a great choice, but never leave without trying "Evidence," a tasty gin cocktail infused with lemon.

    Love angel's share! It's a gem. The cocktails are always on point, servers and bar tenders are super friendly and knowledgable. Get the smoke in your eyes- campfire scented Manhattan.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Super cozy and intimate place. Perfect place to being a date if he or she loves whiskey, bourbon or scotch, alone or mixed into a cocktail.

    They have a second location which is a few feet away from their current location. Usually no wait times at the second location and same great quality of cocktails.

    Get here before 7 if you don't want to wait for a seat! Enter on 2nd floor of the Village Yokocho noodle house through the unmarked door

    A great place to go to during dinner time since there's a little bit less of a crowd. Only go in groups of 4. Inside the lovely Yokocho vilage

    I don't remember what the drink is called, but it is whiskey based, comes upside down with smoke in the glass, and is an awesome sensory experience

    Evidence. It rotated off the menu, but it's a killer tall drink - earl grey gin, lillic blanc, ginger ale, lemon, and Japanese precision.

    Knowledgeable staff and super selection of cocktails. May get overcrowded but worth the wait! Cheers!
