    Check out The Mulberry Project accessible via a subterranean door beneath a Little Italy souvenir shop. Part club, part restaurant, & home to a weekend brunch that rages well into the early evening. Read more

    Hidden underneath an apartment complex in little Italy, their outdoor back patio is the perfect happy hour location when the weather is nice. The Linda Lovelace cocktail was delicious.

    Definitely go for the bespoke, and the bartender will make a custom drink with the alcohol and vibe (fruity, spicy, aromatic, etc) of your choice! Cute outdoor area for a cocktail under the stars!

    Bartenders here are like genies with the bottles. Top-of-the-line, ridiculously awesome craft cocktails. You tell the bartender what flavors and liquor you want, and he makes it so, just for you. A+

    One of the best options in the neighborhood for a good drink away from tourists. I always do the bartender's choice bespoke cocktail. Lovely little outdoor area in back that very few people know of.

    Try their Bespoke Cocktails. Fantastic concoctions. Pick your alcohol & how you'd like it served (Shaken, Stirred, Refreshing, Aromatic, Savory, Sweet, Sour, Spiced, Light, or Alcohol Driven).

    Look for the pink light and staircase downstairs to find this Speakeasy. Known for their make your own cocktails, aka bartenders choice, there's a dance crowd but also a nice backyard.

    great spot for an early drink, as it is a very small space and the later it gets the less space avalaible. One of the few great speakeasies in NYC with mind blowing food to match.

    This hidden treat takes an innovative approach to its drink menu – it doesn’t have one. Instead, you choose from a list of ingredients and the bartender mixes you an original concoction. Be adventurou

    Amid all the bright lights and neon signs of the old school joints in Little Italy, you have to be looking pretty hard for the unmarked red door with a little red light that serves as the entrance. Read more

    It's below 149 mulberry St. Look for the staircase leading down to a purple light. The place is larger then most speakeasys making it great for groups.
  • Natalie V.
    Natalie VegelJuly 13, 2016
    Neat little speakeasy that basically is bartenders choice menu. Just say the base liquor you like and flavors you prefer and they mix up something awesome. Also has a nice outdoor space, but small

    Create your own cocktail by the ingredients listed on the wall. Waiters are super friendly, nice atmosphere but the place is packed quickly. One of the nicest speakeasy I've been to!
  • Catherine P.

    Two words: Bespoke drinks. I asked for gin with a fruit & the waitress recommended blueberry & rosewater to go with it. Sooo good. There were still tables available around 11 pm.

    Check out their speakeasy within a speakeasy. La Isla Escondida will only be open during the summer. If it's like their last popup 1919 it'll definitely be worth it.

    Instead of two turntables and a microphone, Beck could have sang about your choice of two flavors and a liquor, and had himself a hit song about the drinks at a speakeasy nestled beneath Little Italy.

    Mango muddled bevvy was soo delicious. But be prepared to be ignored for about 20-30 minutes before anyone looks up to make you a drink!

    Don't order from the menu. Let the bartender make you a concoction based on your liquor preference, it's a delicious surprise with such fresh ingredients-- lots of fruits and herbs

    A nice outdoor space, but the cocktails are weak, which sucks when you're paying $12-15 bucks for them. I had two and felt nothing.

    We're back for the opening of their patio + garden, 900 square-feet & 50 seats of outdoor casual. Dont to try something off their brand new menu of frozen cocktails.
  • Owen H.
    Owen HerterichAugust 28, 2016
    Pretty trendy but low-key cocktail bar. No menu, you basically throw a type of liquor and some adjectives to the bartender and see what he comes up with. Also has a nice backyard.
  • Diana C.
    Diana CanadeApril 28, 2013
    Ask the barman to make you a cocktail, dont go for regular drinks, they are mixer magicians. outdoor is reserved only for those who are dining which is a bit annoying when it's warm out

    Very tucked away, but too well-known to drop in. Ideal on a gorgeous weekday when you can take over a backyard table and order food. Waits are excessive on weekends. Terrific drinks.

    Build your own cocktail or choose from a list that are named after porn stars. Patio in the back is really pretty ! Great ambience

    Get a table in the back garden. The truffle fries are amazing, and get the spicy gin drink (try it with cucumbers or fruit), you won't be disappointed

    Great outdoor space. Wish the drinks were a bit stronger, but they're super tasty (i.e. the Jenna Jameson with blackberries). Food is not top notch (i.e. the burger)

    Great after-dinner spot in the neighborhood. Good cocktails, friendly bardtenders, fun vibes (and it could get a little crowded later in the night)

    Pick a type of alcohol and let them take it away from there. You will not be disappointed. Also great atmosphere - such a cozy, warm spot.

    Sonny ByrdJanuary 31, 2014
    Suggestions: jalapeño, ginger, tequila base, or a whiskey, egg white, apple base. These were a couple of the best drinks I've ever had. Food sucks though beware.

    Discrete speakeasy. No signs, look for the red door down the steps. Tell the bartender what ingredients you like or give him an adjective and he'll whip up a cocktail surprise. Tourists not allowed.

    There is no formal cocktail list, but the bartender asks the type of spirit you like & if you like your drinks sweet, sour, etc. Then he creates a custom cocktail for you.

    MAKE A RESERVATION - seems that this so called "hidden gem" has gotten trendy - so crowded you lose the speakeasy feel.
