    The only bar in Times Square that doesn't feel like Times Square. Swanky atmosphere and the cocktails are well-crafted (and strong). You might remember this bar from a few scenes in Birdman.

    I was skeptical going to a bar right in the heart of Times Square. The Rum House dashed those feelings with a strong Rum heavy cocktail menu. Try the Rum Old Fashioned. Other liquors available too

    Don't let the location fool you, it does NOT feel like Times Square. Great spot if you're in the area (or need a pre or post theater spot). Solid Manhattan cocktail! And live music via piano.

    This is the definitive answer to "Where can I actually find a good cocktail in Times Square?” and "Where can I listen to live old time-y music in Times Square without a cover charge?" Read more

    old fashioned cocktails & fun live piano music + live lounge singer. A bit of an other-wordly atmosphere you don't quite feel like you're in Manhattan!

    Highly cost-effective cocktails, a piano bar, an amazing jazz band, cool people of New York City. Randomly found, only to find it's probably one of those rare authentic places around. What else?

    Amazing live music!!! Great classic cocktails as well, and you can customize your booze options. Crowd is a mixed bag of midtown bros and tourists. Good spot but snag a table if you can.

    Try to come here on a weekday if you can, or perhaps during the Broadway show times to beat the theatre crowd and enjoy yourself sipping a Mescal Negroni. Read more

    Bottom of the Edison Hotel, classic spot by the people of Ward III. The place gets packed with suits (naturally), but behind all that, this is one of the best spots to drink a cocktail in Midtown.

    Swanky, consciously old-timey bar from the folks behind Ward III, with excellent cocktails and a never-predictable crowd.

    You can’t come here and not have a rum drink! Try the Tortuga with Monte Cristo 12 year dark rum, muddled lime, lemon and orange, fresh cinnamon, and muddled with candied ginger. Yum. Read more

    Sit at the bar, focus on menu, and have 3 cocktails as you listen to piano man swing the room. After that, seek out Troy for the best drink of your life.

    Properly spicy bloody mary on weekends from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The best in Manhattan! another called the Andrew Jackson, made with white whiskey and smoked paprika, garnished with salami. try it!

    They don't serve food, so make sure to eat beforehand. You will likely have more than one drink. Don't be afraid to order off menu. Pick a spirit and have the boys create something magical.

    Excellent cocktail spot in midtown. Also loved the old time jazz and the old couple dancing amid the random out of towners and midtown office people. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    We love the super classy and stylish atmosphere almost as much as we love their Dark & Stormy cocktails.

    Literally the only good thing in Times Square. Legit cocktails, relatively quiet on weekdays, with the occasional live jazz band. Beautiful spot hidden in plain sight.

    Hottest Cocktail: Dark & Stormy - "What sets this drink apart is the fresh ginger muddled in to give a peppery, spicy zing that makes you forget you’re in Times Square." - Damon Gravina, bartender

    Out near Times Square and looking for a place to have a good drink? This is it. Get something with Rum, natch. Live Piano every night of the week.

    Amazing cocktails, live jazz, celebrity clientele. All around an awesome place. Oh, and Birdman was filmed here!

    Live jazz. Relaxed vibe. Not a bad Times Square area option. I only had beer but they seemed to be very focused on classic cocktails. Next time! (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Amazing bar, great variety and quality of cocktails. The performance of the band “mimi and the podd bros” was magnificent. I really recommend it.

    If ever visiting NY you must stop by the Rum House. The atmosphere is unexpected. The service is exceptional. You won't want to leave.

    Found: a not crowded, good cocktail making, good music having, dark wood decorated, piano bar off Time Square. Never Chevy's again while you're waiting for a show!

    One of the few places near Times Square where it doesn't suck to get a drink, the Rum House was an old-schooler taken over by the team behind Ward III in Tribeca. Read more

    Cocktails march on inexorably a la the classics, a few originals, and rum concoctions like Mojitos and Mai Tais made with top shelf booze.

    Arrive after 11.30pm on Monday nights for insanely good jazz; and drink the rum old-fashioned for an insanely good drink.

    Great cocktails and live music. It's hard to get a seat, but you have a better chance if you avoid the pre/post Broadway show crowd

    A breath of fresh air in the armpit of midtown. Get the bathroom pass and check out the Art Deco Edison lobby

    Great cocktails + table service. Very cozy and perfect for pre/post Broadway show drinks. I saw Bruce Willis here once.

    "Nightly piano playing...classic cocktail lounge swathed in leather banquettes and lit by glowing candles, obfuscating the hustle of Times Square, which is just around the corner." - nymag

    Pisco sour w ginger and mint. But really, tell the bartender the oddest of mixes to your mood and they'll make something good
