    Go for the whiskey and their hilariously named menu categories like "Dry, Resinous, and Spicy", "Tobacco, Leather, and Chocolate", or "Old & Complex"... all of which describe your sex life. Zing! Read more

    Mixologist dream selection of spirits and beers, great food as well. Very crowded but if you want to get started early it's a great stop. Try the Jeeves with the smoked salt! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Duck quesadillas, grilled cheese, homemade beef jerky are good. Cocktails are tasty and well-priced. Favorite was the fast break (cold brew, bourbon)-- they took it off menu but made one for me anyway

    The food is better than you think and it gets quite busy so fight for a table. You can lose hours and hours here because the cocktails are great but get it straight. Great selection of whiskey

    Awesome craft cocktails. You cant go wrong with the Wake up call and the Sylvia. & ask for Joe, he's a great bartender .. The staff here is very unpretentious so it's a great atmosphere all around.

    The food is amazing. Must haves: truffle grilled cheese (the best grilled cheese you will ever have) and fried Mac and cheese balls.

    This spot serves more than 70 bourbons and whiskeys (including Utah’s High West Rocky Mountain rye). Our favorite drink is the citrusy punch amped up with chai-infused Wild Turkey and Batavia Arrack ( Read more

    A great, talented bar staff and a good menu can be easily overshadowed by the area's swarm of trend-hopping locusts. Definitely worth a visit, definitely during off hours.

    Find a spot near the door, enjoy the superbly crafted cocktails, and take in the constant stream of people heading up to some mysteriously epic rager at the apartment next door.

    The manager - Choun - is THE whiskey aficionado of New York City. Every whiskey has a story, and you will have a much greater appreciation and taste for whiskey by the time you leave!

    The perfect spot to unwind and have a drink with a great bar appetizer menu. The Old Fashioned & Sazerac are a must try. Perfectly made every time.

    The front is super noisy, so try to snag a table in the back. They'll tell you it's for food only, but you can talk your way into a table

    As the name suggests, American spirits are the emphasis at this dark, sultry bar. Along with a selection of bourbons and ryes, there are gins, vodkas and rums, all distilled in the States.

    Cocktails are excellent. Really enjoyed The Perfect Storm. Whiskey samples are great. Try Around The World #1. Fried pickles and perogies are tasty.

    If the front bar is crowded (as it usually is) just go to the back and grab a table with a few additional bites. Totally worth the extra breathing room.

    Try the lobster roll - The lobster was sweet & good. The star were the chips. They were great. Sorry the roll is blown out by the flash.

    Good cocktails (they'll also do any of them non-alcoholic, if you want), and yummy bar snacks. Get an order of fried pickles for sure.

    Bartender is really nice, cocktails are great, the bar is clean, and they play great music ( interpol, black keys, arcade fire, etc)

    This whiskey bar has a decent selection, always some good beer on tap and a couple solid food items. Try the fried chicken entree.

    Perfect spot for a midweek lunch! Try the Truffle Grilled Cheese or Cuban Sandwich and don't forget to eye the bar as the weekend nears...

    Definitely not one of my favorite bars around here. They openly use measured pours and it is a little to illuminated. Lacks the character that man other cocktail bars have.

    I'm a huge fan of Mezcal, a very smokey campfire-like tasting tequila, so I was in love w/ Oaxaca Sunset!

    One of my favorite places to drink in NYC. Not all their bartenders are created equal though.

    Boiled peanuts are bomb. A hint of cinnamon/cloves yum makes it warm in your tum. Also, fries = perfection.

    If you like a smoky Manhattan, try the Hog Wild: bacon-infused bourbon, maraschino, sweet vermouth, bitters

    Get a drink from Rosser and talk for hours about booze and music - biscuits and gravy and their fries are #legit

    The "Bad Apple" is great. Just a hint of fruit and spice, well balanced.

    The mixed drink menu.. kinda girly. But the sweet bartender girly will whip ya up something stronger to your liking if you ask for a recommendation.

    If you like fruity with a little gingery surprise, order the bloodhound &/or the Oaxaca sunset

    Our first reaction at the Rye House was "OMG! They have a bourbon float!" - We have not been disappointed! It's fantastic.

    The Spicy MF isn't on the menu but is a bloody marry on steroids: spicier without the revolting tomato taste.
