    Get there early or make a reservation as they fill up fast! Dev is THE MAN. Order ginger fizz and the charcuterie and cheese plates. Seasonal and nightly rotations- honey pistachios, orgasmic bread!

    This is a fantastic spot and one of the best bars in the world. Try the Amalia w vodka, St Germain and berries or the Daiquiri with Bacardi Heritage rum. You'll have a blast with this bar team!

    Employees Only was designed to be an industry hangout -- the kind of place where chefs, servers, and bartenders go when their restaurants close to enjoy a serious cocktail and food.

    The all around famous bar in nyc still delivers, but the ambience brings it down several notches. Over crowded always. Attaboy and Angel Share have them beat hands down unless a food menu is a must.

    [Restaurant/Bar] Art deco-themed cocktail bar with solid menu and special late-night menu (midnight to 3:30am). Try their Ginger Smash, Lazy Lover or classics like Manhattan. Fireplace lit in winter.

    What can i say? We love everything, the cocktails (simply the best) the Steak Tartare (amazing) Bone Marrow poppers (if you into them) plus Hemingways. Take care of your bar tender....and security.

    Yes, at this point this “speakeasy” is anything but secret, but that doesn’t make it any less of a gem. We could go for a ginger smash and some bone marrow poppers right about now, come to think of it Read more

    What a fun place! Good for groups before going out! There are tables and food services in the back, and a bar / dancing floor-ish space in the front. Drinks range from the classics to more edgy ones
  • Cole K.
    Cole KennedyJanuary 21, 2016
    Great cocktails, but they aren't better than any other cocktail bar in Manhattan, and they're certainly not worth the surcharge for the psychic in the front door (nor the overwhelming crowd).
  • Lori L.

    Arriving earlier in the evening for dinner will allow guests to make a reservation, and skip the crowded club-like atmosphere that later ensues. Make sure to get an order of the bone marrow poppers.

    Amazing steak tartar.Had the Bloody Mary, Pimms cup&a jalapeno cocktail on multiple visits&every drink seemed to taste better than the previous order.The parmesan fries with truffle oil was delicious

    Consistently the top cocktail bar in NYC and one of the best in the world. Outstanding speakeasy-style cocktails served by NYC's most talented mixologists. Great crowd, beautiful decor / ambience.
  • Bruce H.

    Best get there really early to stake out a place at the bar, as this place is packed even during weeknights. Craft cocktails are (of course) great, but surprised by the amazing chocolate cheesecake .

    Reserve in advance (only available for dinner) or be prepared to wait, cocktails galore (try them all) and fresh oysters daily, great for a night out with a group or a date

    Go right when it opens at 6 p.m., sit at the bar, and let the very talented and personable bartenders lead you in the right direction. Try to get there before "douchebag parade" arrives.
  • Gustavo M.
    Great drinks and food - overall great bar. Try to go in the weekdays instead of the wknd. It's usually super crowded over the wknds, if you are planning on going make a reservation.

    Bone marrow appetizer was amazing. I also highly recommend the pork chop..it comes on top of a bed of delicious bacon-y black eyed peas. MMMmmmm. Definitely gets very crowded after 9.

    My favorite cocktail bar in the city. Cozy and surprisingly unpretentious. If you're looking to have a bite, the beef tartare is yummy - the bartenders make it at the bar!

    Best cocktails ever. Don't go here to drink beer. Don't go here to drink mixed drinks. Go here to fall in love with the cocktail again. These guys seriously care about the art that is the cocktail.

    By now you know that this underground hole is the best place for cocktails in town. A little heavy on the pocket though - so go during happy hours unless someone is giving a treat. 😌

    You're in the hands of some of the most talented and creative mixologists in the city, so this is not the time for a gin and tonic. Order one of their specialty cocktails and let them impress you.

    This place knows how to do cocktails, and you certainly pay for their expertise. Hemingway daiquiri is a refreshing citrus on a summer evening. Lively even during the week nights.

    This secret bar/restaurant hides in plain sight. Look for a neon “Psychic” sign and a tarot reader in the window. Why: Classic cocktails, late-night menu, fireplace and garden. And palm readings.

    If you like something with a little kick to it, try the lazy lover. It has just the right amount of jalapeño in it. Don't judge it by it's name - it's based on the song by the Brazilian girls.
