Specializing in seasonal flavors, Apotheke crafts its cocktails with fresh, daily made ingredients, using local and organic produce, herbs, and botanicals.
Spot the Chemist sign and duck in here for a "prescription". It's a unique spot with an apothecary feel to it. If vodka soda's your drink, I recommend the Ivy Fizz.
Stunt double and the matador are fantastic!
The drinks are amazing. The brass band that plays on Tues is too. The waitress has a hall monitor attitude. We saw her tap a bill reminding a couple to pay. She took a seat from the hands of a patron.
Catcher in the Rye
the best bar i have been to in NYC so far! amazing live music Mondays. great cocktails and the vibe is amazing. bartenders may be quite slow though, but ut us worth the wait.
Awesome cocktails! Thank God the bar tender from the Tequila Bar right next door hooked us up!
Delicious drinks ever!
Anything with gin is 👌🏽👌🏽
Cool bar w/ excellent cocktails.
Location and Drinks
It still has that "vibe," but is it really worth trying to get to the crowded bar?
Fantastic cocktail bar. Easily top 3 of Manhattan up there with Dead Rabbit. Good for an early night meet up or pre dinner drinks
Awesome jazz music on Wednesdays.
Music is always on point.
Too much hype for this place tbh. Low lights. Smaller than expected. Drinks have a heavy amount of alcohol in them. A lot of standing around. Seats are a rare find. One floor.
A secret chemistry lab like bar with different cocktails. Tokyo drift is my favorite one.
All the alcohol are chemical and all bartenders are in fancy lab coats. However we had a "deal closer" and got a "paid vacation". (Those are our drinks names, they are FANTASTIC)
Love this place!! Located so randomly in Chinatown but they have killer cocktails and live jazz sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays(with live burlesque), and Sundays. Go early or make rsvp-
Atmosphere mixed with cocktails
Everything was awsome about this place: funny guy at the entrance, life jazz, burlesque show, delicious cocktails (try "devil may care"👍🏻 ) handsome bartenders and the over all atmosphere. Love it!
Speakeasy cocktail bar smack dab in Chinatown. Looks like a Chinese pharmacy from the outside. Lab-themed and all of the mixologists wear lab coats and mix your drinks in vials and test tubes.
Look for the "Chemist" sign for the entrance to this speakeasy.
I liked the Sitting Buddha drink. It was tangy and refreshing! Good times with good friends!
The recent sign on the brown door says chemist. Kings Landing is pretty much like an Old Fashioned yet it blew my mind.
Kale cocktail is my jam... Everything is awesome though
Delicious cocktails and great live jazz music on Monday nights. Late night it gets a little rowdy, but if you have a fun date and can dance the night away, go for it.
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!!
Bathroom mirror makes u look like a ghost trapped in it
Housed in a former opium den in an unsuspecting corner of Chinatown, finding this place can be a bit intimidating. But trust me, it's totally worth it. The elixirs are spectacularly creative.
Incredibly knowledgeable mixologists willing to share how they decide on what to mix.
Among the best cocktails I've had. These guys are talented mixologists.
Grand Budapest and Dr Ruth!
Guys be warned, there's a dress code!
The environment is attractive and the menu is filled with innovative drink descriptions. The issue with Apotheke is in the execution. Manhattan has a lot of bars that do it better for less $$$.
Excellent cocktails, cool people and great 20s ambiance. Make sure not to come underdressed. And make sure not to miss the jazz band on Monday evenings and the brassband on Tuesdays.
Tainted Love is a great cocktail!
Classy place, but the cocktails have to be your style. Everything is a little too sweet to my liking. All the cocktails are clever, but I feel they miss the mark of highlighting the spirit itself.
Really cool spot. The drinks are very authentic and place has cool vibes. Free, mandatory coat check is great.
Amazing pharmacist themed cocktails
Best cocktails ever. Glad to be back
Oldie but goodie. Sexy vibe and amazing cocktails. Haven't been in a while, I've missed this place!
Cocktails are crazy
I like this place better on weekdays.. When it's quieter
The speakeasy lives! Mandatory coat check is a good call because this place is usually packed
I've got a new favorite speakeasy and you'll need a password to get in. Some of the best cocktails I've ever had and some amazing performances by the dancers and live band. Gotta do it.
Get an excellent cocktail, maybe something with scotch and see where things go. Always a good spot post 10:30
Great atmosphere, interesting live music, and amazing cocktails! Try any of them, they're all good.
