    A focus on gin from Ravi DeRossi, also behind Death & Co. The scene is a punk rock take on an English pub and the drinks, which include gin and tonics on tap are mostly classic and all affordable.

    Your young trendy east village crowd. Gin covers the bar with gin cocktails on tap, but you can order whiskey and beer if you ask nicely! Try and grab a spot on the stadium seating to overlook the bar

    It's all dark glamour, with dark woods, black leather and ornate ceilings. There’s gin and tonic on tap, beer in the bottle, martinis however you like them and fish and chips for snacking. Read more

    This place is so cute!! Perfect for drinks with the girls: great music, cool cocktails, low lights and not super trendy (yet)... Stop by for Nelson's Fix :-)

    A relatively affordable cocktail bar devoted entirely to gin. Rarely crowded, and there's a bitters-enhanced G&T on tap.

    Sit at the bar. Bartenders are fun an knowledgable (don't try to be all chatty when they are busy...that's just annoying. These guys work hard!). Gregory was fantastic!

    I've never been a gin guy, but the cocktails here are amazing. There's not a lot of room to hang out though, so you'll end up butt bumping finance bros all night.

    "Five words changed my life 3 weeks ago. 'Gin and Tonic. On. Tap.'"..."I felt all at once that it would be a great place for a date or to be single." http://gorealto.com/blog/?p=865

    One of my favorite after dinner date spots. Random music like a dive bar, amazing drinks like a speakeasy

    Cozy and not over crowded early in the week. Bartenders are even happy to tell you about the gins and cocktails they make you.

    High five Josh the bouncer on your way in, grab a glass of gin, and nab the top row on the staircase bench with your friends.

    Police & Thieves is a great cocktail - love the cinnamon. Watch yourself on the gin & tonic on tap though - they are large and deceptively strong.

    Typical LES bar to the left then dance cage to the right...and playlist goes from MJ to Miike Snow. Get drunk and you'll enjoy it.

    The G+T on tap is a revelation, and $7 to boot. Also one of the best Pimm's Cups I've ever tasted.

    If secrecy and gin is what you desire, this is your spot! However the music want great. Maybe it was just a bad night for the DJ?

    Might want to crank the AC during the summer. Place is too small and packed to stay dry from all the humidity. Drinks were fine and prices were reasonable. Few too many uppity white girls though...

    Cocktails and decor are great. But, the overall atmosphere is way too cluby. I want to have a conversation over a nice cocktail, not shout over mediocre music.

    Trick your senses with a White Negroni. It tastes just how you would expect, but sans Campari.
