“Best of the secret bars in NY, IMO”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This place is classy! The bartenders are expert mixologists that take their job very seriously. The venue is hidden in the back of a psychic booth (with an actual psychic sitting there!) and has a real exclusive feel to it. A+++ fancy cocktail place!

“Very cool!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

A friend told us about 'speak easy' bars in New York that are hidden behind other shop fronts! We did a bit of research and found this place which sure enough is hidden behind a neon psychic sign at the front! There's even a tarot lady sitting in the window! But behind that is a very cool bar serving top notch cocktails! Food also looked wonderful although we didn't try any!

“Cocktails are works of art”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I enjoyed the fun entrance. There is only a logo and a neon sign that says Physic. Sure enough before enrtering the bar, a physic was giving readings. It was a packed house. Sitting at the bar you can truely enjoy waching drinks being made. I cannot remeber seeing such well oiled working bar. Drinks are a tad pricey but worth every penny. The crowd was fun, it was a great night!

“Great after hours bar”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

When looking for a place that is open late on a random Monday night- look no further. Great for an intimate cocktail or a late night snack with friends.
