Great selection of Italian amari (bitters). The pompous American bartender seems to ignore that many cocktails made with Amari require either white wine or prosecco. Noooope, we don't sell any of those here. Sorry. 1 glass of Amaro del Capo 13 dollars?preposterous.

This place is so very cute. The staff weren’t overly friendly when we went, but not sure if that’s because we were quite a large group in such a small space. They specialise in bitters, which is why this isn’t a place for me. I...More

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.

Came in here one night before dinner. Two friends came with me to keep me company because I wanted to try the place but they weren't drinking because they're on medication. Service: The barman made a nasty quip about me being the only one drinking...More

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!
