    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Weekday lunch special is a good deal. Most of the sandwiches are quite good, but don't get the tacos with mahi mahi (they are extremely bland).

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Love the cocktails here -- LOATHE the poor service and bad attitudes from bartenders and barbacks. Go in expecting a decent time, though, and you'll be okay.

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

    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.

    Ask for Kyle the bartender and he'll make you an amazing drink. And if not make it for you, certainly recommend something based on your mood.

    Your new home for after-work or late-night revelry. Grab a bespoke Manhattan (mixed with house-made rye) and bite into a Pittsburgh-style sandwich.

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

    Always a few great beers on tap. Good selection of whiskey, bourbon and rye. Delicious fish tacos at lunch!

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

    The Truffle grilled cheese is a must! Combined with seasonal beers and you have a meal fit for kings

    The Spicy MF isn't on the menu but is a bloody marry on steroids: spicier without the revolting tomato taste.
  • Daniel H.
    Fried Mac and cheese (balls) are kind of bland and not cheesy enough. I should have gone for the grilled cheese.

    Anything you get to drink here is great. Supplement it with some Fried Mac and Cheese. You won't be sorry.

    The clientele can be frat-boy-pretentious, but the bartenders are lovely and the snacks are nice and weird.

    Take caution if you order the The Wake Up Call or The Perfect Storm. Warning : they are potent !

    Whiskey Sour here is the real deal! Rivals the noted mixologist of yore Terri F. Uses egg whites!

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

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

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

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

    Truffle grilled cheese and any beer OR the sloppy joe sliders and any beer are a must!!

    Great burger, andouille sausage sandwich is top notch. Agree, libations are 'write home' worthy.

    Deep fried mac n cheese, sliders, and the daiquiri made with chorizo infused liquor. Yum!

    Their Bourbon and Rye based cocktails are some of the best around, try the Clara Bow.

    Try to seat at end of bar (away from entrance) to see the drink making magic go down.

    The baroness, just delicious. But watch out.. the small glass goes down a little too easy.

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