Cool place. The first challenge is to find it.....
Once you do it’s a proper speakeasy vibe with low music and dim lighting (which is actually quite weird lol)
Good friendly cliental , very very strong cocktails served for some reason in tea cups.
We checked out this place because we are interested in the history of gangsters and prohibition. The atmosphere is great and vibrant. Cocktails are served in teacups like they did during that time period. Drinks are good, but very strong. We really enjoyed taking in...More
On Wednesday Nights from 9am to Midnight, Gotham City Blues hosts Blues Dancing! Many people join or watch. Some are very skilled! The space is large enough to sit privately or with a large crowd. The decor is unlike any in NYC. Immediately you'll feel...More
Found the back room by accident. Would not have known it was even there! Super venue with great restoration and vibe. Faboulous band, go on a Monday evening to hear the live bands. Drinks are expensive but so is everything in New York! Had a...More

The Back Room is a totally authentic speakeasy that is down a long alleyway. You need to gain entry from the security at the door. Inside is a beautifully appointed venue with Prohibition style decor with two levels, fireplaces, couches and a private back room....More
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.

We walked straight in, they didn’t ask for any ID and we weren’t the best dressed. We were smart casual (think my bf was wearing trainers). My one tip is to try to reserve a seat, all the tables were reserved when we went so... More
We walked straight in, they didn’t ask for any ID and we weren’t the best dressed. We were smart casual (think my bf was wearing trainers). My one tip is to try to reserve a seat, all the tables were reserved when we went so were standing for a while. Luckily a man took pity on us and let us sit at his reserved table as there were spare chairs.
