    Non-flippant tip: Amazing cocktails. Awesome bartenders and staff. The Holy Mountain from the winter menu is inspired. Ask for something off-menu for fun and let the bartender surprise you.

    Have shot a short film in this amazing bar and distillery, a memory that will forever be with me as they do have some of the best cocktails available and the surrounding as just as good,

    Fantastic Date Night spot with some of the best cocktails you'll find in the area. They may take a little while, but you can enjoy the view of their distilling operation while you wait.

    Love The Shanty on a weekend afternoon. Live music, happy hour specials, laid back atmosphere, and Jen is wonderful behind the bar. Best unexpected discovery in a long while!!

    Great selection of often hard-to-find booze. Also, great bartenders work here. We did not get one. Avoid the Christian Soriano lookalike and go, instead, for his bro-y coworker. Odd, yes, but right.

    Max is awesome! Go with his recommendation! You can't go wrong! Martinez was good. Little on the bitter side (I like sweet cocktails) but still awesome!

    Romantic cocktail bar attached to the New York Distilling Company. Often has live music. Worth exploring.

    All drinks are delicious but if you're nice the bar tenders will whip you up your own mixology drink. Be careful, they're strong!

    Try every single cocktail on the menu. (All amazing) Blackout. Forget you even came here and do the same thing two weeks later.

    Very interesting, come on Sundays for the live band. And there's a happy hour. Didn't do the tour, but it looked like everyone who did was happy.

    Not the easiest place to spot, keep your eyes peeled. Get the goat cheese with golden raisins crostini and a fancy gin cocktail.

    This place is good, but extremely hipster. Expect beards and live bluegrass, but also good cocktails.

    They're aging Rye and are talking about making a "Rockin' Rye" as well. Sounds dee-lish!

    The house made gin is great, the setting is beautiful, but bartenders are a bunch unpleasant and rude assholes. Such a waste.
