    Rum & Cola. It's a must. If you like mezcal, get THE Presidente! As the best new bar in America, you can't go wrong at all. Oh and their aperitif is delish!

    Beautiful bar. Delicious drinks. Very cool menu book. Havana vibe. Great for a date. Perfect background music. Highly recommend the empanadas and save the sauce!

    It's a great bar and you should definitely go, but I wish they would embrace the building they are in and open the windows. As is, it could be in a basement somewhere instead of a pier with a view.

    Terrific cocktails and food but be prepared to feel transported way beyond the nearby shores of NYC to a more relaxed Caribbean setting. Live jazz music on Sunday nights!

    From day 1, the Coronation has been my favourite drink here. Wonderful atmosphere and the setting is beautiful with live music often.

    Inside pier A. Absolutely stunningly beautiful inside. Great service. The pisco and tea was subtle and delicious. by the same folks who did Dead Rabbit so if you liked that place you'll like this one.

    Before this, Dead Rabbit was my favorite bar in NYC. Now I have two favorites. Get the el presidente and the celery drink in the second section. Also the oysters, the ahí tuna crudo, and the fries.

    Great service and a lot of investment in the details. Cocktails are varied and tasty. A bit overproduced / shiny n new for true schoolers. Feels like ur in a midtown hotel a bit

    Great spot for a light dinner with drinks and quiet enough for a conversation. You can't miss with a daiquiri and the red snapper. Service was surprisingly friendly & attentive.

    It's hard to encompass how well designed and exemplary the experience of this bar is. You should go here.

    The decor transports you to another world. Bar staff is friendly and fun. Cocktail list has some unusual gems. Recommend trying the Green Tea & Pisco for a refreshing sip!

    Words fail to describe me the vibe you feel in this place. Take a trip to the past in prohibition era Cuba. Cocktails and service are top notch. Being your girl to impress her.

    This Cuba-themed cocktail lounge is from the creators of Dead Rabbit. The decor gives a feeling of authenticity; elegant but not pretentious. And the cocktails (especially rum-based) are delicious.

    Shrimp sugarcane-skewers were unreal, spare ribs were delicious, all the cocktails were on point. Decor is gorgeous and thoughtfully done. Will be back!

    If you want something unique, try the Alaska. It blends gin, vermouth, cucumber, melon, and yellow chartreuse into something phenomenal.

    Yuca fries and rabbit Cubano are great for pairing with one of the punches. Get the pineapple milk if you're a fan of piña coladas.

    Decir and atmosphere are 👌🏼, octopus is disappointing, shrimp is delicious, save room for the tres leches

    Cuban themed bar with decor that will transport you to 1950s Havana. For drinks, best to stick with rum based cocktails like the Hello Stranger.

    Phenomenal cocktails, bartenders and venue. Get the bartender to mix for you after you tell him your preferences, works out well.

    I've been to 100s of cocktail bars. This is now #1 on my list. Unbelievable rum cocktails.

    When you are handed your free postcard which they promise to mail anywhere, have it sent directly to where you’re sitting—down to the chair—and then don’t move until it arrives.

    A little pricey, but drinks were OK. If you like the cuban-salsa vibe you'll enjoy it.
