    Amazing manhattans and old fashions - all I've got to try, but I'm sure any cocktail here is just as wonderful. Love the vibe here as well, great place to chill alone or with a few friends.

    A wonderful cocktail lounge. I've been coming to Big Bar since I got to NYC in 1981. It's a miracle its still here!! Great vodka gimlets! Get them "up"!

    The music is good without being too loud, the light is good without being too bright, drinks are good without being too pricy - I think I found my new go-to bar.

    Dax is the best, Thursday and Friday nights. He'll make you a custom cocktail if you ask nicely.

    go here to meet your true love. I did - in 1994! No regrets. Dreams can come true, but if you're really lucky, it happens in the East Village.

    The Manhattans here are really good. You can ask to get them in a manly glass to avoid spillage instead of the little martini glasses.
