This is one of the coolest, hidden cocktail bars in the city! Must make a reservation in advance. Great service and quality drinks! Highly recommend.

LOVE that you can press the button when you need something. Yesss, this is awesome. We lucked into a two spot near the front. Cushy club chairs, good music, excellent cocktails in a speakeasy-ish type setting. It was the perfect place to have a pre...More

Exceptional atmosphere, pleasant servers, and creative approach to dining makes it easy to overlook the few limitations it has. Cons: 1) Expect a wait on a weekend night; make a reservation (via yelp) if at all possible. 2) Lots of gin/rum/mezcal cocktails, so if you're...More

Definitely in the top 10 NY speakeasies for ambiance. Each room represents a different era from the 1960s- 1800s. Complete with call buttons, chandeliers and private booths, you'll definitely feel prohibition at its classiest. If that's not enough history for you, Oscar Wilde even used...More

I would definitely recommend a visit here, when in New York. Be sure to make reservations though, as this place is amazing and can get quite busy. Nothing is to much for the staff. Could not have asked for more. Thank you for a lovely...More

We had to wait and give our name for 2 on a Saturday night (not unexpected). After 20 minutes, we got the text that our table was ready. Neat ambiance but dark and a bit loud. Service is impeccable: just press the button and the...More

You will miss it if you don't pay attention to the address. A hidden place inside an apartment building. You will need to reserve. Nice selection of cocktails. With some bar food choices but expensive and small portions. Comfortable seats and well done Victorian style...More
