    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. It's a former speakeasy where you still feel as though you're getting away with something. Even in midtown. Order a Rob Roy.

    Frequently on those top lists of "best bars in America" and deservedly so. Stop by for a step back in time.

    A gem of a hideaway. A bit pricey. Specialty is whiskey.

    Check out the amazing memorabilia from the late 1800's thru the 1920's. This place is like stepping back in time.

    Very old school NY but awesome. Here on a Wednesday night and Elliot was tearing up the piano. Bring your parents- they will love it!

    '20s decor remains en vogue at this multi-story restaurant and piano bar, once a top speakeasy.

    If you have to be in the east 50's, you should drink at Bill's. It's a tiny but potent former speakeasy and sure beats all the lame Irish pubs scattered around that nabe.

    Girls bathroom is 2 floors up. Otherwise the tip is to sit at the bar and hang out. Bartender called me a wild woman. Hope for the same.

    Totally bizzare & rude staff. You mine as well serve yourself and guess what they serve on the menu. I nearly had to beg for a menu.
