    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

    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

    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

    Go before 7:30pm on Sundays through Wednesdays. Sit at the bar. Don't trust the doorman's time estimates if he puts your name down--it's very hard to predict when people will leave.

  • Metromix

    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

    One of our 10 best Manhattan bars- Expertly made cocktails somehow manage to remain in the realm of the relatively simple. Delicious bar snacks help you prolong your stay.

    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

    Joaquin Simo and the other vest-clad bartenders at this East Village spot have an encyclopedic knowledge of cocktails.

  • Zack S.

    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.

    have the staff recommend something for you based on what you like/ love - bitters? Acid? Citrus?

    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

    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.

    Go to Death and Company: Sit at the bar and enjoy the wizardry of mixology artists who will delight you and whomever you want to charm.

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

    Heaven: sitting in a darkened, romantic bar that looks pre-Prohibition, sipping smart concoctions made by smart barkeeps, making this place heaven on earth.

    Go here and feel like Barney Stinson, if only for a cocktail.

    The food there is actually delicious - got to try mac and cheese if you are hungry

    Tell the bartender what flavors you like and let them decide your drink. Cool decor, lighting, and suspenders!

    2011 Winter menu must try: Hot Lips: Los Amantes joven mescal, jalapeño infused Chinaco verde, pineapple, lemon, vanilla syrup, cane syrup, salt rim.

    Go early (before 10), go often, and sample all the cocktails. Ravi and team hit it out of the park with every drink!

    Jessie Beegle · January 24, 2010

    Go to Death & Co and order one of the punch bowls. Get the pretzel bites too!

    To quote head bartender Jillian, "Three cocktails is normal, two is average."

    Classic bartending style here! Entertaining to watch! Drinks are really good here too.

  • Graham G.

    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.

    Graham Gibbs · May 2, 2012

    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 · January 9, 2012

  • Auds B.

    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).

    Auds Ball · August 16, 2011
  • Nick B.

    Don't stand up in the bar; remain seated; you'll get yelled out by the lady-bouncer-person.

    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".

    FAC · October 14, 2010
  • Nina Y.

    Get the La Valentina. Muddled raspberries, wheat beer and tequila - amazing.
