Charmane's Star + backdoor patio = a perfect fall evening
Beautiful bar, good cocktails. Come here if the Wayland across the street is too crowded.
Great happy hour
Oyster happy hour, great drinks, and an outdoor area out back. You can actually hear the people next to you on the early side, but at midnight on a Saturday night, expect to be crammed in.
The odds were good, but the goods were odd: some house cocktails are pre-mixed. Tasty enough, but the competition nearby rules out a repeat visit.
the governor!!!! cardamom yuzu excellence
Charmaine's star is fantastic
Great drinks, try John hooker for sure. Sliders are excellent, both pulled pork and buffalo chicken, shrimp not so much
Get dat Dark and Stormy ⚡️
Pretty standard in my opinion. A great nightcap but nothing to write home about.
Great salmon burgers!
Great old fashioned - really cool vibe. Can get packed.
I love the dark, intimate setting! The bartenders are extremely nice. The cocktails are spot on and would highly recommend The Last Cocktail and the Breaking the Law cocktails. Oysters are a must!
Come here on a week night for cocktails. So overcrowded on weekends.
Best cocktails in Alphabet City
Impressive happy hour deals.
Charmane's Star (Russian Standard Vodka, Cucumber, Shiso Leaf, Fresh Lime, Vietnamese Cinnamon Infused Agave, Rhubarb Bitters) Gov’nor (yuzu, orange juice and cardamom-infused agave syrup)
Great cocktails. Happy hour til 7 on Saturday. Half priced cocktails. Do it.
Great cocktails and small bites. Gets crowded quickly on Fridays.
Casual and quiet during the week. I imagine it's packed Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so stop by another day. The happy hour is 5:30 - 7:30 and offers half-price oysters and half-price cocktails.
Seriously awesome specialty cocktails. The Guv'nor, Governess, and John Lee hooker are all terrific.
Oyster and cocktail happy hour 5:30-7:30 every day
Favorite cocktail bar in Alphabet City! Great drinks and check out the backyard!
A little out of the way, but youll forget the walk after their amazing cocktails, ambiance, and service.
Worth the trip to Avenue C. Try and grab the table in the back if you are with a group. Drink the John Lee Hooker.
Oh man, love this place, the Last Cocktail... #heaven
Great cocktail spot on Ave. C. Popular for dates. Just get the John Lee Hooker and prepare to ask yourself why it's so delicious.
Alphabet City gem. Good cocktails.Old fashioneds till 4am?! Sold.
Good cocktails. Pretty crowded scene
Great cocktails, lively atmosphere, customers in late 20s early 30s, which is rare for neighborhood. Gets crowded early.
Fantastic cocktails in an unpretentious environment.
cocktail is great
Their non-advertised, strictly WOM brunch, dawg. Do it!
Solid place but I prefer The Wayland across the street.
Great cocktails, reasonable prices and quick service
The Old Fashioned is legit, but man can this place get crowded.
Very cool cocktail joint with chic atmosphere
Get the John Lee Hooker. (Peat monster scotch, Summit Orange & Sasparilla Bitters, Fresh Lemon Juice, Topped with Hop Stoopid Beer)
We like the spicy margarita which is the perfect way to wash down a pickleback. Cash only and avoid it like the plague on weekends. It is too packed to think.
Hello Gov’ner! In other words, start with Gov’ner. Followed by Charmane’s Star. Followed by the Ground to Glass. Followed by the largest slice of pizza you can get your hands on. 1 of our fav spots!

Gingerita is fucking awesome
Cocktails here are delicious but loaded with sugar = one too many and it's a one-way ticket to an epic hangover.
Get the Guv'nor.
You absolutely must try the John Lee Hooker - AMAZING!@
The staff at this bar went above and beyond to make my birthday special! Everyone had a great time and the drinks are creative and unbelievable! Thank you!

the Guv'nor all the way
Not easy to find any place on Fridays.. but the cocktails are so delicious. .be right back soon
