This place WAS great 😢
Classy as shit. Last I checked, they were supposed to be moving to a new location...
RIP sweet Elsa
The vibe at Elsa feels like a restaurant if that restaurant just happened to only serve drinks.
Cocktails are delicious
Amazing cocktails. Dear god, amazing craft cocktails. Order the drink Invitation To A Beheading... Just stupendous. Pish posh.
Come w/ a party of 5 & get 3 rounds. If y'all get a different drink each round, you can taste almost everything on the menu! I've tasted 15 drinks & all but 1 (tequila old fashioned blah) were DIVINE.
Death of a Ladies Man is a great rye with tobacco bitters. Love how the drink is so... Smokey 😎
Death of a Ladies Man = crazy delicious
Bad. They gave me very very strange look there, so I had to leave.
I can't get enough of this place. My "Invitation to a Beheading" even came with a sword dripping with "blood" tonight. Amazing. Also super friendly/knowledgeable people behind the bar.
Great cocktails, a little pricy, kinda loud.
Death of a Ladies Man is an awesome cocktail! Scotchy scotchy old fashioned with tobacco bitters.
A handsome grandson...yes please
Not sure what all the fuss is about. Quality not bad, but the drinks felt all watered down...
Perfect for post-dinner libations with a date. Try the Black Book if you like bourbon & jalapeño. If you're ambitious, go for the Perfume-V and you'll feel like a sophisticated female Manhattanite.
Order the "invitation to a beheading" and "a spoken era". The bathrooms are okay, floor is really wet but at least it doesn't stink!
Smells like meyer's clean day in the br. All the time. It's kinda a good thing.
Best Hot Toddy's in the neighborhood.
If you're a handsome grandson, order one.
Delicious. The self portrait and black book cocktails are amazing.
Well mixed cocktails. Relaxing vibe. Can't believe this place used to be Plant! So much history..,
Amazing spot. I loved the gin & jasmine green tea infused "Invitation to a Beheading" -- add egg whites & it's my new favorite/perfect drink!
This spot is overcrowded loud and overrated mixology.
If you like spicy whiskey drinks, order the black book.
OK this place is super cute. Cocktails are a bit on the sweet side tho
Lovely cocktails, nice dim sexy booths.
Lovely date spot.
'The Death of the Ladies Man' or 'The Self-Portrait' are the best cocktail items. Fun place afraid the word is getting out
Every cocktail is amazing. Get the black book for something spicy!
You can't go wrong with "Invitation to a Beheading" or "The Handsome Grandson" ....or the names of any of these cocktails, really.
Loooove the Black Book
Cosy tables and perfect Manhattan.
This place would be the perfect date spot! Not too loud and intimate ambiance.
The Black Book. Nuff said
Self-portrait. That's spicy goodness in a glass.
Some of the best cocktails I've had in the LES. Get the 'New Partner'
Great date night spot
Perfect is in every way
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.
SAZERAC! But more than that! Great music ! Great space!
Da da da damn.
Death to a something is good
Passable cocktails. Slowish service. Reasonable prices.
The Black Book is great if you want something a little spicy.
Everyone here seems surprised about how drunk they are. Must be the Self-Portrait or the Black Book. Chilies + booze = heaven?
Such a cute cocktail bar! Try the Black Book (jalapeño + bourbon + honey) -- amazing!
Tried the Black Book cocktail last night, warned up my bones. Tasty, a tad sweet and spicy too. Best cocktail I've had in a while! Worth a try.
Best bar at naming their cocktails. They used to have a twist on a Mojito that was named after Rachel Maddow.
chill place for drinks, especially if you like cocktails. "the really spicy one" was the popular vote at my table.
