    Excellent cocktail lounge! Focusing on whiskey, but with great options for all spirits. Chill atmosphere, excellent staff, delicious food and drink. One of the few cocktail lounges to offer happy hour

    Seriously, one fabulous place. Everything has a bit of a twist, from the deviled eggs topped with olives & jalepenos, to the custom cocktails. I will definitely be back!

    Colonel Mustard in the Library, is the perfect drink to accompany a rousing game of Clue. The brandy-based drink gets a fruit-and-nut infusion courtesy of walnut liqueur & smoked Luxardo Cherries. Read more

    Bespoke cocktails are the way to go, but ask to see their whisky list selection too. Monday from 8-10pm are Whisky nights. Sign up on their Facebook page to see upcoming events. Whisky pate rocks!

    The classics are paid proper homage here. Try a Martinez and a Hemingway style daiquiri. The bespoke cocktails are creative, experienced, and personal... don't miss them.

    The mixologists here now what they're doing and will whip you up whatever you want or make a suggestion if you're indecisive. These 'bespoke' cocktails will please you and are tailored to your taste.

    Known for the Bespoke Cocktail, Ward3 is the perfect neighborhood bar for locals & great destination bar to meet friends for a drink. Grab a stool by the bar & watch the talented bartenders concoct. Read more

    In honor of the Tribeca Film Festival, try the "Norman Fizz", featuring Lavender-infused honey, lemon and grapefruit juices, bitters, and egg white shaken with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Gin, topped with soda.

    Amazingly mixed different types of herbs and spices into something delicious. Get a hint of something unique in these -- Doctor Jones(garam masala), Cuchi Cuchi Baby(basil), & Guava & Love(rosemary)

    Ernesto GutierrezSeptember 14, 2015
    Try the 'guavas and love' and the 'ward III' cocktails. If you are feeling adventurous go for the 'the Peking supermarket', the best way to describe is: it tastes like Chinese food

    I love coming here for after-work drinks with co-workers or business drinks. Amazing cocktails, the mac & cheese is delicious. Good place to know in the Tribeca area.

    Deviled eggs with bacon, hot sauce and jalapeños are delish. BBQ duck nachos, too! Oh & in case you didn't read other 4sq tips, they're famous for custom - "bespoke" - cocktails made to your tastes!

    The best place to grab cocktails in TriBeCa. They have a great list, including a plethora of old fashioned variants, and you can go bespoke if you wish.

    Swing by here if you are in Tribeca and are looking to grab a drink. Food is surprisingly good for a bar. The place can get crowded at night, so make a reservtion if you anticipate a large group.

    Bespoke cocktails are truly one of a kind. You don't need to follow the guide on the menu, just talk to the bartenders and they'll whip up something good!

    Ward III cocktail is a cool take on pisco sours. But goddamn, the grilled cheese is so good. Sweet caramelized crust and tasty cheese. Truly fantastic.

    Bespoke drinks- really cool place, kickass concept. Drinks were not too bad either, service a little slow waitress made up for delay w/ free guac & chips fr our table. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Great vibe and good collection of scotch. Get the duck nachos or deviled eggs if you want food. The music choices can be questionable sometimes.

    Good for cold weather or a cloudy day, as it's a cavernous space. Chances are it'll be crowded after work but the bespoke cocktails are well worth it.

    "Bespoke cocktails" are fun. If you're into tea flavored drinks, ask for one with black tea and rum as a base. Worth the trip to TriBeCa
  • Yoplait
    YoplaitAugust 28, 2011
    Give a few specifications (texture, flavor, spirit, fruit, and spice) and leave yourself in the bartender’s capable hands. Use words that describe your style for a truly personal creation.

    This small bar is anything but a hole in the wall. An understated ambience and a knowledgable bar staff give this place the kind of timeless quality that one expects to find in a film noir flick.

    Great vibes, great drinks, and great bar food make Ward III a treat. In Tribeca where places often sit on opposite ends of the grimy/over-lush spectrum, it's a pleasant surprise to find such an oasis.

    This three-year-old TriBeCa bar provides a low-key refuge for people who want a cool hangout without the pretension of the red velvet rope.

    Happy Hour is from 5-7pm. This is a serious bar, with seriously good bespoke cocktails. Try the Sweeter Heater and the Mini Pulled Duck Sandwiches.

    Great cocktails starting at $12, but be forewarned -- there's a high population density of loud talking and collared shirts with the top button undone.
