    Delight yourself with an incredible selection of well balanced cocktails. Then feel lucky and leave it up to the bartender to surprise you with a drink based on your specifications.

    Enter through the Iroquois Hotel lobby and head straight back to find a small, under the radar cocktail bar with great drinks and a nice vibe. Good post work spot

    Hidden inside the Iroquois Hotel, this prohibition style cocktail bar is a nice choice for a unique drink. Warning: it gets packed and there's usually a wait. Also they don't serve vodka.

    Quality bartending. They can make great off-menu cocktails Baer on what you like. Mezcal? Sin problema.

    Super cozy space with delightful bartenders. I liked the "Stay Up Late" and this thing made with gin, cucumber, orange, hot sauce, and Worcestershire. Amazing.

    Housed inside the Iroquois Hotel, this intimate spot's kept warm by an elegant gas-powered fireplace, though if that's not enough for you, their cocktails will drum out some of the chill, too. Read more

    The lobby of The Iroquois Hotel, a great place for a highly civilized drink. There are private tables, and you can even make a reservation. Keep it in your back pocket for when you need to impress.

    I didn't realize that intimate meant that people would be making out at the table across from me

    On my list of goto Midtown bars to go for drinks with friends. It's a little hidden inside of a hotel which is a nice bonus.

    If you're looking for great cocktails in Midtown, look no further. We like it best for late-night and on Saturdays when it's quieter and the suits have moved elsewhere.

    I love that the menu is broken down by kind of ice and whether a drink is shaken or stirred.

    Solid cocktails (if a bit sweet) and bartender's recommendations. Menu organization (by shaken, stirred, up & rock) was a nice touch. Menu could be streamlined to remove redundant drinks

    When they says "cozy", they mean it. Doesn't detract from the experience though. Poet's Dream isn't on the menu - strong but good.

    The only one of its kind in midtown, go for bartenders choice. Heads up though, this place is tiny and not great for groups.

    So intimate and cool, but without trying too hard. Almost has the feel of a vintage train car. I usually do bartender's choice, but they have a port cocktail on the menu that I really love.

    Great service, great cocktails. Loved The Troublemaker, NY Harvest, Double Barrel, and Wildest Redhead (yum!). Big ice cubes are the best - they don't melt / water down drink, but still keeps it cold.

    Perfect place to enjoy cocktails after a show at Radio City - a real midtown gem. You might be tempted to order every drink on the menu...

    Its a small place so if you go late, you probably won't get a seat. That said, get the keeper's choice: let those wonderful bartenders pick a drink for ya!

    Theo Lieberman heads up the bar, which was conceived by Meghan Dorman (of Raines Law Room fame). The space is small, so make a reservation! All the drinks are great.
