    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).

    Dark and intimate atmosphere, with a focus on the wall of whiskey. The ambience and whiskey selection are great, but you pay through the roof for 'em. Talking $17 a whiskey. 😬

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

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

    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

    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.

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