A must go if you love a good cocktail. It is not very big, expect to be should-to-shoulder, but I totally recommend it. We tried several drinks, all good. My favorite drink is usually a Manhattan, but at this bar my favorite drink was the...More

I absolutely loved this bar, and would most definitely come back again! I love the simple foundation used for all the drinks, especially because I love amaro. The bar is small with mostly standing room, but it was comfortable. There seemed to be one bartender/water/worker...More

This has to be one of the best bars in Manhattan, based in East village. It is small and specialises in cocktails containing Amaros. It does not do food, but the quality of the drinks makes up for that. Sother was behind the bar and...More

My kind of place. Small, social and wicked frickin' serious behind the bar, but with a smile. Max is a total pro .. even if he hates Christmas trees :) Will be back often.

Specializes in drinks with a variety of bitters. The bartender is amazing! Solo act for about 30 people in crowded, noisy bar. Personable and relaxed - and he makes great drinks. Place can get loud and crowded so pick your moments.

this place hosts 20 people maximum, drinks are very good and take while to be prepared perfectly. The presentation of each drink is in unusual glass or bottle. Its worth stopping by this place for a drink or two.

Teeny little bar with incredible cocktails. We loved drinking here! The bartender (max) was warm, friendly and helpful. If you like unique craft cocktails, don't miss this spot!

My wife and I stumbled upon this place. I'm new to the bitter liqueur world, but I love it nonetheless. They have all things bitter. Go. Go now. It's tiny, but the drinks are great.

I go to Amor Y Amargo every time I am in NY. Friendly , creative, talented bartenders. They can make anything. Just tell them the types of drinks you like or the flavor profile you prefer. People who don't know bitters "get it" after I...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighborhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
