    To get to Fig. 19, you have to walk through an art gallery above the popular subterranean dance spot Home Sweet Home and open up the door in the very back. Once you’re inside, it feels like home. Read more

    Good for a cocktail prior to a night in the city. Walk through the very cool art gallery and go through the door in the back. Drinks are good, sitting at the bar seemed like the best spot for two

    The drinks are a bit on the sweet side -- and there's proseco on tap if that's your jam -- but it has a chill vibe in the back of an art gallery that's a great reprieve from the rest of the LES.

    Above Home Sweet Home's ground-floor entrance. Once on the 2nd fl, a bouncer will greet you at what seems to be an art gallery. Through the gallery you'll find Fig 19. Order the jalapeno margarita.

    Midnight in Paris is amazing: spicy, chocolate, complicated. The Vanishing Point is sweet, smooth and rich. The Ginger Sling is dangerously refreshing.

    Bar was extremely busy and hard to get service. Saw people walk in and wait 15 mins at the bar just to walk back out. Would come back to try the midnight in Paris at a less prime time

    Highly recommend the "Midnight in Paris" if you prefer potent and delicious. Get the "Vanishing Point" if you prefer sweet and refreshing.

    Once you've made your way past the three assorted objects in the "gallery" and into this bar, a) check out the awesome cash machine, and b) order a Vanishing Point, slightly sweet, still refreshing.

    Staff is super friendly, and the place has a nice ambiance. I went with the midnight in Paris and it was spectacular. It was the perfect amount of ginger, not too overpowering

    Hidden in the back of an art gallery, this spacious (predominantly standing room) speakeasy has well-trained mixologists. Ask for the bartender's choice; you can't go wrong.

    Fun little hidden bar that gets a bit crowded on weekends. The gin cocktail is delicious and refreshing, not a lot of seating but the vibe is loud and fun!

    One of the only places where I'll trust them to make a Sazerac. Also recommended: "Midnight in Paris" and "Vanishing Point"

    Guaranteed entrance consist of being a member or via invitation. Bartenders are true mixologist.The mood is very friendly, inviting & cozy. The atmosphere is different than any bar I've been to.

    Cute speakeasy, entrance through an art gallery. Good cocktails but a bit noisy; my friends and I ended up hoarse after only 30-45 minutes from shouting to have a conversation.

    On top of being hidden in the back of an art gallery, it's located on a rather bland stretch of Chrystie Street. It's easy to walk right by Fig 19 and miss it, especially if the bouncer isn't outside.

    Hidden at the back of an art gallery, this Speakeasy offers some solid cocktail offering

    Pricey but great cocktails. Try the Midnight in Paris & Blackberry Margarita. Cute but small space. Arrived at 8:45 and got a table, crowd started building up at 9.

    By far one of the best true speakeasies in the city - all the cocktails are amazing! Go early if you want a seat

    “This space is crazy cool as hell, but don’t whip out your camera. The staff is serious about maintaining a low-key and private vibe.” See more at http://www.partyearth.com/venues/fig-19.

    Cozy, but large enough for group of 4-5 — great music and amazing cocktails in a cool space behind an art gallery

    An absolute hidden gem. More refined crowd in a very well-appointed space. Some of the best mixology in New York.

    When they close, don't go out all the way, the silver door to the left at the exit will lead you downstairs to home sweet home

    One of my most favorite speakeasy bars. All cocktails are good. Preferable on weekends when every other bar is packed.

    Show your ID to the bouncer, walk to the back left of the gallery and open the door. Order a Vanishing Point. Don’t order shots, they were $9 each.

    The atmosphere and the cocktails were all terrific. I like how the speakeasy is tucked behind an art gallery.

    Okay...imagine an Anthropolgie morphed into a bar and you've got the gist of Fig 19. SPECTACULAR place for a single woman to celebrate her 30th.

    Through an art gallery, this place serves up incredibly good cocktails. Slightly more mature crowd.

    The bartender made me a specialty bisongrass vodka cucumber martini - so good! Not on the menu but definitely worth asking for

    Never fails to impress/surprise. Gets really crowded yet somehow not hard to grab a seat. Cocktails are pretty good too.

    Cute little date bar for weekdays. Go in through the art gallery next to Home Sweet Home.

    It has it's moments. Try a more low-key weekday night to avoid a kind-of-douchey, kind-of-confused crowd.

    Cozy and classy but exclusive speakeasy in NYC. If you can get past the bouncer, go.

    Intimate "speakeasy" behind an art gallery. I didn't try the drinks but they seemed good.

    Careful not to walk down the stairs to Wierd bar. Walk through the gallery and don't say you are with the DJ.
