    Cocktails are well crafted and balanced. The bartender fixed me a gin/ginger drink. Speakeasy's fascinate me and I love the secret entrance and dim lights. Great for intimate and quiet conversations.

    Also within the William Hotel is the speakeasy, Raines Law Room at the William, has a book-lined library room with a roaring fire, antique furniture and a hushed atmosphere. Read more

    Super difficult to get in tonight. Ask to be seated in the bar room vs the library. Good cocktails and very good bar food- the cheese toast, the scotch egg and the ricotta is amazing.

    Hands down one of the best speakeasies in manhanttan! Luxury vintage atmosphere, amazing cocktails (especially the spicy one), and good looking mixologists. Take your out of town frans here to impress

    Oh it's dark, noir-ish. My favorite. Try the Old-fashioned (feel like John Hamm) if you are into it. No secret entrance. Ask, they point. Heavy velvet curtain, I fumbled a lot. Great food menu too.

    Classy, cozy and convivial quarters for well crafted cocktails. Fabulous original artwork on the walls, enhances the sophisticated atmosphere. Enjoy drinks at The Shakespeare below first, if waiting.

    Great intimate spot with superb cocktails, great service and fun vibe. The spicy section really is, so unless you really want that burn stick with normal or strong

    Very romantic. Make sure to make a reservation. On the main floor they have seating with opaque curtains to make it feel more intimate. Cocktails are always well-crafted.

    Love this cozy cocktail spot. Superb service, great atmosphere and delicious cocktails. Jimmy knows his stuff. This location is smaller than flat iron spot.

    Ring the bell and enter someone's saloon in the 1920s. Delicious cocktails, $15 across the board. Great gem in Murray hill.

    A gorgeous speakeasy above an English Pub that serves $20 cocktails to remind you that you're still in NYC.

    It seems they don't do same day reservations, or at least not reservations only a couple of hours in advance. Once you do get in, try a Pear of Aces.

    Awesome space. Can be crowded at times, but we lucked out with no wait on a Friday night.

    Even cooler than the original Raines Law Room. Well hidden (inside another bar) with thoughtful cocktails.
