An elegant lounge serving a brilliant and extensive range of whiskey and scotch. -Tressa Williams, Launch My Line
The Brandy Library boasts New York’s largest selection of “brown spirits,” including brandies and cognacs galore. Regulars are known to come in frequently for the weekly “Spirit School” tastings.
Home to one of the most extensive Scotch lists in New York City, Brandy Library offers more than 900 spirits and 100 cocktails.
Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. We suggestion a shot of the Frapin XO Grande Champagne Chateau de Fontpinot.
Wonderful, knowledgeable staff. Insanely extensive menu. Lovely old school decor. Truly a library of scotches, cognacs, brandys, etc. More of an encyclopedia... A must for any spirits afficionado.
Great bar to unwind after work or spend an entire night sampling some of the best and rarest spirits in New York City. Make reservations.
A selection of over 100 brandies from around the world, including some exclusives. I enjoyed the old fashioned here.
We realise it may be difficult to choose from their extensive list, but no matter. Just tell them what you don't like in your whiskey, and they can work around it!
Make a reservation at Brandy Library and order the house blend armagnac xo
If you love whiskey/bourbon/scotch, you MUST come here. Often. But only if you're grown. It's a no nonsense kind of place.
Joel Flores, Spirits Sommelier at Brandy Library. Ask him for a Diplomático on the rocks or for an Old Fashion. Amazing.
Try the Foie Gras
Best water ever
Great upscale lounge with a very large selection of drinks. Walls are lined w/ bottles & have rolling ladders like a library. Very classy. Priced high but check their website for free tastings.
Surrounded by brandy lining the walls, it can be hard to stray from the bar's namesake. But the sazerac is very good if you're looking for a classic cocktail.
Ask for the Johnnie Platinum. Sometimes the have it off-menu behind the counter.
Be prepared to not only enjoy an incredible selection of brown spirits, but learn more about them as well. It's a great experience.
perfect for 30th birthdays!
One of the best whiskey selections you'll find.
Great selection of whiskey
Great out door seating in the front. Excellent service.
a good place to drink some brandy
We live in the neighborhood, why haven't we been here before?! Love the ambience and the extensive cocktail menu. A cocktail I've only had in Croatia was found on their menu. Yum.
Trust in your guide (read: waiter) because they do know their stuff about whiskey, scotch, and other lovelies.
Knowledgable staff and a great selection.
With as many as three thousand unique bottles on its shelves and an incredibly knowledgeable staff, Brandy Library is ideal for lovers of brandy/Scotch/whiskey.
don't go with a big group, but if you are looking for a great cocktail and a good place to talk in TriBeCa this is your spot.
One of the best French 75 you can find on the East Coast
7 years of quiet. Perfect place if you want to drink in a monistary
LOVELY Calvados selection.
It's best to get reservations here and they aren't into groups larger than four
For the advanced drinker... definitely let them do the talking and questioning. This is the only booze drinkers spa for your liver!!
Try the Figs and Pigs
Try the pogue, master's select if you like Bourbon.
favorite place in NY - try the steak tartare
Get the Malt Master flight.
Incredible flights and excellent service. Must visit.
An institution. If you're a Man or Woman of Whiskey, Scotch or Brandy, then this is a must stop for your life. Get comfortable, the options will keep you here for a while.
Great ambiance. Super fancy. Not a whiskey or dark liquor fan but it was a cool experience. The whiskey flights are popular
For the whisky, brandy and cognac lover. Also serve great cocktails. The gin is my favourite part!
One of our new faves. Fantastic vibe and atmosphere. Gougeres (amazing cheese puffs) are a must. You could basically point to anything on the drink list and you'll be golden.
Nice cocktails, but mainly the beautiful interior and jazz music they've got playing sets this place apart.
Great date night spot!
Cozy spot with amazing decor and drink selections. What more could you ask for?
A great place to learn about alcohol. Let your librarian guide you. The atmosphere is customized towards great whiskey consumption - leather chairs, darkish lights and bottles surrounding you.
