Ask the bartender to create a drink for you!
gentleman's buck is pretty great if you like bourbon + ginger
this place is an awesome date spot, but definitely not somewhere to come if you're looking for a lively Fri/Sat night. drink prices are also outrageous.
Great drinks. Cash only.
I have two favorite things about this place: the tightly squeezed in jazz trio and the custom made piece of ice for each drink. I don't like the queue that builds outside the door, it's an eyesore.
Delicious drinks, perfect for a summer cocktail.
Great drinks. Great place. Check it out.
I love this place a lot! Delicious cocktails and good staff! Ask for Manhattan!
o choop eh uma delicia
Get the African Flower. Its a citrus-y bourbon drink
Great speak easy spot in the west village. The live jazz band on sundays plays classics. Solid whiskey sour #jazznostalgia
Takes 3 days of slow freezing in a $6k Clinebell machine to make the crystal clear ice here, 2 hours of prep for the ice alone goes into each shift. Respect!
Amazing cocktails. A great place that I keep coming back. Just perfect!
The line is definitely worth it - I would trust these bartenders with anything. They always make the perfect drink for my mood and tastes. Stellar hang out for a young, affluent crowd
I just tell the bartender what I like and they typically whip up something ridiculously good. Small space so can get really crowded.
Bartender's choice is a safe bet
It's a super intimate, darkly lit, great place to bring a date. As long the bartender knows your drink preferences, it's very, very difficult to go wrong with the bartender's choice.
Nice to go to, but too troublesome to be a regular deal. But trust the bartenders, and admire their ice carving abilities!
They had pretty great drinks and a jazz trio!
Arguably the best old fashioned in NYC.
Come on a weekday, not too late, and snag a table. Bring lots of cash and let the night slip into a hazy, jazz filled euphoria. Tell your boss you'll be a bit late in the morning.
No longer serve spherical ice balls but still makes a good old fashioned. Limited in whiskey selections.
Great upscale bar with amazing drinks. Had live jazz when I went. Speakeasy vibe, fairly small.
Great bespoke cocktails - tell the experts what you like and you won't be disappointed
I left my drink up to the bar tender and it was fantastic! Have never been to a place like it.
Read the rules of the bar (posted in the bathrooms). Enjoy the Jazz.
Loved this spot!
Best speakeasy in NYC hands down. Dark, cozy, quaint. Live jazz!
The most perfect bar in the city. Bartenders choice all night long. Remember cash only and be ready to wait! Such a gem
Cash only and very awkward space. Luckily the cocktails are excellent and if you can grab the booth by the piano - don't leave.
dark, intimate, with a varying array of cocktails for any discerning palate.
Live music & nice cocktails at a fair price.
Any drink they make you with ginger is heavenly. And sometimes they have live jazz too. Perfect mix.
good for a date, speakeasy, they have jazz live bands
Some of the best cocktails in town
Feels like a 1920 bar in a basement. Little branch was excellent a couple years ago, but quality of drinks has gone down recently... If you want SERIOUS good cocktails, try milk & honey (same owner)!
Try the Palmetto!
Lovely hot toddy on a chilly night. Live jazz Sunday to Thursday 10:30 to 1a.
This hard to find dimly lit joint has live music and great service. They make a mean death in the afternoon and an amazing sazerac. If you can't decide, tell the bartender some ingredients and he'll
Super strong Old Fashioned. Super pricey, too, for a cash-only venue...
Super hip little speakeasy with legit cocktails (bartenders know what they're doing). though has been discovered in the last year and can have a line to get in.
Best cocktails: Manhattan, Queens Park Swizzle, Aviation, and the Mint Julep.
Always packed and might not be super comfortable/spacious, but the bartenders are great and know their drinks. Just tell them what tastes you like and they'll put an amazing drink together for you.

Bartenders know what's up, so don't hesitate to trust their suggestions. Cash only.
Get here right at 7pm when they open on weeknights otherwise it is tough to get in without a long wait.
cash only!!! and agreed with others on here - let the bartender decide for you if you're not sure what to drink.
Their Manhattan, Old Fashioned and Sazerac are all winners.
