“It's the best speakeasy in town!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Amazing! Truly amazing place. The best drink I ever had, mysterious and otherworldly the "Absolut Kelly" I loved the warmth and elegance of this place paired with gorgeous and knowledgeable staff and fantastic music. This bar is hidden on top of Barramundi bar-- you have to go through to the back near bathrooms then ring the buzzer. The door is marked "private"

“Boring place and badly mixed cocktails”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Having been to a few other cocktail bars in NYC and in general enjoying a good cocktail bar, we were looking forward to 2nd on Clinton. However this turned out to a very disappointing visit due the lack of charm to the place (seemed more like a tea parlour for couples), poorly made cocktails and very inattentive service. We won't be coming back.

“Average drinks and poor service”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Came here for a night out and after visiting other great speak easy places in NYC had very high hopes. However we recieved a bad sazerac and rather poor service. We had also ordered chocolates which we never got and no complementary water was served. We therefore only stayed for one drink.

“What an amazing hideaway!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a spectacular hidden lounge tucked away inside another bar. There's a nice gentleman that will show you how to get upstairs. You go up a couple of flights and enter a fabulous speakeasy type lounge. The atmosphere is amazing. It's definitely a great spot for couples. I had a topsy turvy drink and it went down very easily! They also have house made chocolates but we didn't try any. The 2nd floor must be seen to be believed!
