    Get there early or make a reservation as they fill up fast! Dev is THE MAN. Order ginger fizz and the charcuterie and cheese plates. Seasonal and nightly rotations- honey pistachios, orgasmic bread!

    This is a fantastic spot and one of the best bars in the world. Try the Amalia w vodka, St Germain and berries or the Daiquiri with Bacardi Heritage rum. You'll have a blast with this bar team!

    The all around famous bar in nyc still delivers, but the ambience brings it down several notches. Over crowded always. Attaboy and Angel Share have them beat hands down unless a food menu is a must.

    [Restaurant/Bar] Art deco-themed cocktail bar with solid menu and special late-night menu (midnight to 3:30am). Try their Ginger Smash, Lazy Lover or classics like Manhattan. Fireplace lit in winter.

    What can i say? We love everything, the cocktails (simply the best) the Steak Tartare (amazing) Bone Marrow poppers (if you into them) plus Hemingways. Take care of your bar tender....and security.

    Yes, at this point this “speakeasy” is anything but secret, but that doesn’t make it any less of a gem. We could go for a ginger smash and some bone marrow poppers right about now, come to think of it Leggi tutto

    What a fun place! Good for groups before going out! There are tables and food services in the back, and a bar / dancing floor-ish space in the front. Drinks range from the classics to more edgy ones

    Arriving earlier in the evening for dinner will allow guests to make a reservation, and skip the crowded club-like atmosphere that later ensues. Make sure to get an order of the bone marrow poppers.

    If you like something with a little kick to it, try the lazy lover. It has just the right amount of jalapeño in it. Don't judge it by it's name - it's based on the song by the Brazilian girls.
