    Over in Hell’s Kitchen, this little bar specializes in whiskey – and has a huge selection. If you’re into brown liquor and find yourself on the West Side, this is your spot.

    Actually a great selection of whiskeys just not a nice bar. Way too dark and the glassware and ice cubes aren't up to par

    with over 150 whiskey options on the menu, this is the perfect upscale hole in the wall for brown liquor lovers. the bartenders are friendly and know how to mix a mean cocktail.

    Best Manhattan I've had in Manhattan.

    Very low key spot with a great selection

    Roy Chin · May 24
  • Zack S.

    Good selection and a nice space, but everything is about $4 more expensive than it should be.

    Zack Sheppard · May 19
  • Josh S.

    Specify what liquor you want, otherwise the bartenders will choose the most expensive to rip you off.

    Amazing whiskey collection. Awesome place for a nightcap.

    Friendly service, intimate setting. Be sure to stop by in January or February as all the exotic distilleries ship their one bottle per year in the early months.

  • emily m.

    Over 150 whiskers behind the bar, friendly bartenders and a small space so it always feels intimate.

    a large selection of bourbon, rye and whiskey. they also offer tasting paddles. no beers on tap, only bottles.

  • Wesley B.

    The only whiskey hold out in Midtown West worth patronizing. Well thought scotch & rye selections, good music (usually something Sinatra esque), and some surprises that are not on the menu (just ask).

    Widow Jane bourbon

    Very quaint and unassuming place in HK. My coworker brought me here and immediately feel in love. Extensive whiskey and rye selection. Highly recommend if you're a connoisseur or novice.

    A bourbon lovers' paradise. They even have Pappy stashed on the top shelf (for a hefty price)

    wonderful selection of American, Irish, Scotch whiskies and beyond. Also, they have Pappy but you'll pay dearly for it.

    Tried to order a Sazernac Old Fashioned and a Templeton Manhattan. The bartender literally scoffed at us. It's whiskey. It's not that serious, dude.

    Perfect place for a low-key, quiet bar conversation. One of my top choices in Hell's Kitchen. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and will guide you through whiskey choices too. A true gem.

    Discovered via Yelp! & fell in love. Best brown liquor troves anywhere. Jeff the bartender will not steer you wrong. Loved all his suggestions. If you love bourbons, scotches & ryes - you must try!

    Kim Colaprete · October 14, 2013
  • Kellen B.

    Best whiskey list I've seen anywhere near Times. And it's ALL whiskey not just scotch.

    Kellen Barranger · September 5, 2013
  • Dipanshu S.

    Love the scotch collection. They have an Indian whiskey that was rated top 3 in the world. Also check out the octomore

    If you love whiskey, come here ASAP. The bartender is extremely knowledgable, and can recommend you types if whiskey that you've never had before.

    Ask the bartender for Pringles with your drinks...you'll get three cans if you are lucky

    Natalya · May 29, 2013
  • Paul M.

    Great selection of whiskeys and tequilas. I recommend the Hudson Baby Bourbon.

    Relaxed and chill. Knowledge and excellent all-round bartender (Daniel). Perfect place for a whiskey/scotch aficionado. I live in the neighborhood, and will be back.
