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

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

    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.

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

    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).

    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)

    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!
