    Huge selection of whiskey! LES iced tea was very refreshing, and not too sweet! Nice neighborhood bar where you can kick back and sip on scotch. ... or play some pool

    Can't believe I'm barely leaving a tip on this place now. Hands down my favorite bar in NYC with the best bartenders. Solid whiskey selection. You don't f*ck with them (hi Shawna & Sandee!)

    LES Sweet Tea- divine. Fo during the week & chat with your bartender when it's quiet. He'll hook you up & help you out! Plus! Free peanuts :)

    They have an awesome collection of bourbons, whiskeys, scotch, and specials (like spiked apple cider from the crockpot during winter). Stop by!

    If youre on the pool table, ask about a better rule set than the one on the wall. If you're friendly, most people will agree to play something a little easier!

    IPA with a Buffalo Trace, a bowl of peanuts, super cool people in and behind the bar, cool decor and music, I love this spot

    Strong whiskey selection, lots of options from across the Atlantic - and even a few from across the pacific!

    Great, strong, reasonably priced drinks. Watch out for the drunkards though, they stick to the bar like bees on honey.

    I love the old-fashioneds and Manhattans that they make here, probably the best in the city. and get them with Buffalo Trace.

    Have the mcallen's 15 year oak whiskey. For the love of god do yourself that favor. Pair it with the IPA beer as well.

    Get the Lower East Side Sweet Tea. Knock back a couple and you'll wake up wondering what happened.

    Don't order your usual. The whiskey selection is wide, ask the bartender and exit your comfort zone, you will find a new favorite.

    I mean, they use Imperial as their well whiskey, so you should be coming here.

    When I think about the sacrifices made by past generations, I'm so very grateful that they were able to create a world where The Whiskey Ward exists

    Good whiskey and bourbon selection but awfully crowded, especially on the weekends. Have fun partying with the UES on those days.

    Having a hard time picking from the fantastic selection? Grab a whiskey flight. Free shelled peanuts to coat your stomach as well.

    Old fashioned for a stiff drink. Moscow Mule for a refresher. As other reviewer said, hide from LES madness here.

    They have a 16yr Glenlivet, but if you prefer bourbon, we love the Woodford Reserve.

    Huge selection of whiskey. I could drink here daily for six months before I start missing somewhere else.

    The hot toddy is strong but a good warm drink for a cold weekday evening.

    Amazing list of rotating bourbons, whiskeys, scotch. If it is there, Jefferson's 17 yr Reserve is a must.

    Un-chilled filtered single malt scotches are heavenly. Don't even think about ordering them anything but neat--or with a splash of water.

    Very crowded but the bartenders are quite friendly and helpful. The other patrons can be somewhat rude, but what else would you expect from a bar.
