    Great spot for impressing friends. We love how the cocktails are crafted, not poured. The Queen Palm remains one of our favorite drinks of all time (and in this town, that means something). Read more

    Worthy of the hype, the cocktails here are some of the best in the city. The Short Change Hero, which used roasted pepper and pepper jelly, is the best cocktail I've ever had.

    Great cocktails all around. Good for groups just get there early or reserve a table as it tends to fill up after 7. The "to share" options are fantastic along with the Japanese liquor cocktails!

    One of the great cocktail bars you will ever visit and well worth the wait if there is one. They don't let in any more people than there are seats, so the vibe is always great and the service superb

    Go for the Lobster brioche rolls for some delicious grub, and you will have an awesome date on your hands.This place is best suited for a romantic or intimate date.

    First dates & small plates. Fancy cocktails are ridiculous: get the Cure For Pain and Rita Hayworth. Food rundown: tuna tartare, truffle mac, filet, lobster brioche rolls, mushroom tart. Infatuation

    Best drinks ever; and coolest speakeasy with a dash of hipness that NYC is missing. A great place to go by yourself, and sit at the bar, meet people. Bring an egg (90210) to get in on busy nights....

    Great bar with delicious cocktails. The menu is very extensive but broken down by spirits so it is easier to choose. Try to sit at the bar to watch them mix drinks. Remember to Swig your drink.

    A constant innovator, this spot is home to more than a few modern classics. Difficult at times to squeeze past the door, worth it when you make it into the dimly lit spot for mixological excellence.

    The drinks are all expertly mixed. The use of all their esoteric ingredients will make your head spin, but one sip and you'll understand the difference between a bartender and a mixologist. Excellent.

    An exemplary cocktail bar if there ever was one. They've set the standard since 2006 and it's clear why. Drink, drink, & be merry here, regardless of your preferences.

    Doctor Strange Love & Bourbon Birch. Can't go wrong. Death & Co. is one of my staples. Be prepared for a wait. They don't take reservations ahead of time.

    Great cocktails and atmosphere. Not cheap and often a long wait, but if you're not in a rush or can get here early it's great. Really enjoyed the "Hot Gossip" and the "Beyond the Sea".

    The cocktails are hit or miss, but always strong. The bartenders are skilled and efficient. James at the door is very polite despite having a hard job. The music was hard rock on Friday night.

    Dark, brooding, and obscured, Death & Co. is everything one expects from a speakeasy-style bar. Though its been around for years, it’s still one of the best places to get an ambitious drink. Read more

    Get here EARLY, as a starter to your night, or else be prepared for someone in your party to have to wait in line for an hour. Beware if you're in a group: staff can be reluctant to split the bill.

    Drinks are fantastic! Only issue is that it is very dark inside. Very dark. One of my guests had a issues with his sight due to the excessive low light and basically drank blind all night.

    They're great! If you're indecisive, ask for the bar tenders choice! They do no wrong. Just give a little info and they'll bring out a GREAT drink (ie what kind of alcohol, sweet, bitter, etc).

    Drinks are good, not great. Vibe is lively speakeasy. Crowd is whoever will wait (often A-Cityers). A/C is lacking in the summer. There are better cocktail spots, but D&C deserves its rep and history

    Warning: once you have a cocktail here, you will no longer settle for poorly made drinks. Bartenders are some of the best in the world. If there is a wait list, get on it & head over to Vandaag.

    Lovely place with great music and friendly bartenders. Beautiful decor. Interesting drinks, fancy but not always tasty. Beware the Doorman tells everyone who arrives it'll be 10 min. It isn't.

    The quality, complexity, & craftsmanship of the cocktail menu at D&C put it at the top tier of cocktails bars in NYC, USA, & arguably the world.That being said the unnecessary pretentiousness detracts

    Sit at the bar! Ask for recommendations from the bartender. The only downside is that the kerosene lamps made me feel bit dizzy but maybe that's just from the delicious cocktails.

    You will probably have to put your name on the list at the door and wait for a while for a call, but it's worth it. The best cocktails in NYC; I've never had a bad drink there.

    Tell the bartenders what flavors you like and let them choose. Go before a late dinner. The wait time won't be as long as the doorman says, but make sure your whole party is there.

    My absolute favorite bar. They mix the drinks in the old style using different size ice cubes and raw eggs. Bartenders are very experienced and awesome. -Susie Brunet, Launch My Line

    Service may not be the standout here, but the excellent cocktails, such as the Gypsy Wedding (gin, aquavit, lime juice, grapefruit juice, and honey) make it well worth the wait.

    A storefront on E 6th with wooden panels in place of windows. Death & Co. is printed on metal out front. Give your number to the bouncer at the door. He’ll call you when you can come inside.

    One of the best cocktails I tried this year was at Death & Co. Gin, cinnamon, bark syrup, and chardonnay. It made a completely different taste and alchemy in my mouth. -Elizabeth Falkner, Top Chef M

    Fantastic place! Tho maybe don't bring a first date here ladies, that waitress is too distractingly gorgeous for men to not oggle. Like taking a date to a metric concert, prepare to be ignored.

    Cocktails are to die for at this East Village bar. Drinks like the Joy Division and the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test sparkle amid the Gothic loveliness of this cocktail manor.

    I tried the Double barrel julep and the Pendennis club cocktail when I was there on my first night in NYC from STL. EXCELLENT! No need to say any more - except "JUST GO".

    It's hard to call this a "speakeasy" since its front door is anything but hidden. Still, the cocktails and cuisine here are some of the best prohibition-revival offerings in NYC.

    Myra Breckinridge (Laphroaig 10yr scotch, sugar cane sugar, lime juice, absinthe, fresh mint) on the Resurrection list is a must have!

    Try the Sweet Hereafter. Swapping in pisco for gin, barkeep Joachim Simo takes the straightlaced martini for a sultry Latin American spin. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more

    Great cocktails. Best in the city. I enjoyed the blazing saddles. If bourbon is not your thing, just ask for a recommendation. The bartenders know what they are doing. Trust them.

    This 1920s-esque bar goes all out for the speakeasy feel with bow-tied bartenders, jazz tunes and kerosene lamps. While the drinks are mixed by experts, it gets pricey easily. Read more

    Dimly lit atmosphere. Often plays danc-ey music. Cocktails are very good (but nothing too memorable). If you really want to carry a good convo, go to milk and honey instead

    Best cocktails in the city. Small venue, but if you can get a spot, get the ink & dagger. Also, try one of their brandy-based drinks. Can't go wrong!

    This is my one of my fav speakeasy's in NYC. Have tried a bunch of cocktails here and have never been disappointed. Great selection and the ambience is so cozy.

    Favorite cocktail bar in NYC. Speakeasy atmosphere but the management / bartenders / bouncers are all super nice and not pretentious. Will happily take your # and call when the table is ready.

    Unconventional tapas, in a dark and mysterious, chandelier and candle lit atmosphere. The doors outside and lack of windows makes this place difficult to find from the outside.

    Everyone knows the drinks are amazing, but don't overlook the food. Order the mac and cheese -- it comes piled in 7 soup spoons, which makes for a fun eating experience.

    The estimated time the doorman gave us was right - about an hour around 11:30 pm on Friday. The interior was okay. The gate was cooler. Drinks okay, the service was great.

    The best cocktail bar in EV. Decor & atmosphere are phenomenal. Pricey, but worth every penny if you're trying to impress. Try on a weeknight to avoid the wait.

    Drinks are good but the service sucks. Our server was taking shots at the bar and kept forgetting to bring us things that we ordered. Then she added a 20% tip. Good tips are for good service!

    Cinder = the most deadly drink on the deadly cocktail scroll: a concoction of jalapeño-infused añejo tequila, repasado tequila, mescal, lime, and smoked salt. Read that list again....(from GQ Mag) Read more

    The cheese and charcuterie plates were laughably small. I can get a much more generous serving for less at similar bars (The Ship). Cocktails were good though.
