“Very nice bar room, top drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is a pretty cool place to go in the Meatpackers district. Not too loud or overly pretentious.

We reserved some space (to ensure no line waiting) and it all worked pretty well for our group of 13. After the usual slow start getting a drink into everyone's hand, the service from then on was great.

They have a good cocktail list and some very nice beers. You do however need a flash light to read the menu!

Music was fine. Not too loud so you could talk but still a good atmosphere. Not much room to dance though.

For us we were looking for a place to spend a few hours as a group after dinner nearby. Bathtub Gin fitted the bill just fine. I would recommend it for those seeking a great cocktail in a cool place with a good vibe.

“Great Neo-Victorian Lounge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

If you like prohibition style bars this is the place to experience! The staff were friendly and attentive. The drinks were potent and delicious! Loved the true-to-the-time decor, especially the large copper tub in the middle of it all!

“It's a Speakeasy!! What fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

From the outside, this place looks like an unassuming coffee shop in the middle of a residential area. Once you get into the coffee shop, you're ushered through to the back, which is a swanky bar. The drink menu is fun, and you really feel as though you've been transported back to the days of the speakeasy!!

“The best of the speak easy's I went to,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

The revival of the speak easy is great fun. I went to three or four and this was the best. The food, mainly nibbles were great the drinks fun and plentiful and most of all the atmosphere. extremely well done as only really our American cousins can do.
