    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Sinan O.

    A secret chemistry lab like bar with different cocktails. Tokyo drift is my favorite one.

    Sinan Onceler · September 11
  • Annika Y.

    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-

    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.

  • Gary T.

    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.

  • Grier P.

    Kale cocktail is my jam... Everything is awesome though

    Grier Potter · July 3
  • Meg F.

    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.

    Meg Farmer · July 1
  • Carl F.

    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!!

    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.

    Guys be warned, there's a dress code!

  • Aaron J.

    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 $$$.

    Aaron Jones · May 16
  • Marco V.

    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.

  • Balbina

    Tainted Love is a great cocktail!

    Balbina · May 5
  • Felix S.

    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.

    It's not just your cocktail that you are choosing - you are also selecting your mood. The menu is broken up into several categories: Health & Beauty, Aphrodisiacs, and Stimulants to name a few. Read more

    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
