    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Love this spot. Come here late if you're looking to skip the longer waits earlier in the evening. Each cocktail is brilliant, these guys know what they're doing.

    Everything is good, but the menu can be overwhelming. Working with the insanely talented bartenders makes crafting a drink way more fun than ordering off a menu.

    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.

    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.

    best cocktails of all time. it's expensive and the wait can be formidable, but it is worth it. if you love tequila, ask for the yama blanca.

    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 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.

    Wanna know how to get in…leave your number with the bouncer and he’ll call you! Once inside, you’ll enjoy the best cocktails of your life…especially the Oaxaca Old-Fashioned.

    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.

    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.

    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 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".

    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

    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

    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.

    Amazing bar, but too famous for its own good. If it's a weekend, go to Mace, Amor y Amargo, or Pouring Ribbons and save this for a weekday. It deserves little wait and full enjoyment.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Put your name down early in the night and you'll be able to get a couple bars in beforehand. I love this place. The Hawaii Five-O drink is amazing!

    At the vanguard of the classic cocktail revival, David Kaplan and Ravi DeRossi created Death & Co in 2007. Ranked fourth in the 2011 World's Best 50 bars list, this is an industry classic.

    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.

    Excellent cocktails here in a studiously quiet setting, but be prepared for waits up to several hours long.

    Fantastic cocktails, can't be passed over. Look out for the lack of a double door set up. Brutal draft every time someone enters or exits in the winter.

    Where to find the "Manhattan Hipster." Delicious cocktails. Yummy munchies and a sexy, swanky design décor. With every penny, ahem $20, great for date night! -Jacqueline Lombard, Top Chef

    Fantastic place to go for your first drink of the night. Go early and with a small group - they can't accommodate a party larger than 7.
