    The food is better than you think and it gets quite busy so fight for a table. You can lose hours and hours here because the cocktails are great but get it straight. Great selection of whiskey

    Go for the whiskey and their hilariously named menu categories like "Dry, Resinous, and Spicy", "Tobacco, Leather, and Chocolate", or "Old & Complex"... all of which describe your sex life. Zing! Read more

    Awesome craft cocktails. You cant go wrong with the Wake up call and the Sylvia. & ask for Joe, he's a great bartender .. The staff here is very unpretentious so it's a great atmosphere all around.

    Mixologist dream selection of spirits and beers, great food as well. Very crowded but if you want to get started early it's a great stop. Try the Jeeves with the smoked salt! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Duck quesadillas, grilled cheese, homemade beef jerky are good. Cocktails are tasty and well-priced. Favorite was the fast break (cold brew, bourbon)-- they took it off menu but made one for me anyway

    The food is amazing. Must haves: truffle grilled cheese (the best grilled cheese you will ever have) and fried Mac and cheese balls.

    A great, talented bar staff and a good menu can be easily overshadowed by the area's swarm of trend-hopping locusts. Definitely worth a visit, definitely during off hours.

    The perfect spot to unwind and have a drink with a great bar appetizer menu. The Old Fashioned & Sazerac are a must try. Perfectly made every time.

    This whiskey bar has a decent selection, always some good beer on tap and a couple solid food items. Try the fried chicken entree.

    As the name suggests, American spirits are the emphasis at this dark, sultry bar. Along with a selection of bourbons and ryes, there are gins, vodkas and rums, all distilled in the States.

    Find a spot near the door, enjoy the superbly crafted cocktails, and take in the constant stream of people heading up to some mysteriously epic rager at the apartment next door.

    The front is super noisy, so try to snag a table in the back. They'll tell you it's for food only, but you can talk your way into a table

    The manager - Choun - is THE whiskey aficionado of New York City. Every whiskey has a story, and you will have a much greater appreciation and taste for whiskey by the time you leave!

    This spot serves more than 70 bourbons and whiskeys (including Utah’s High West Rocky Mountain rye). Our favorite drink is the citrusy punch amped up with chai-infused Wild Turkey and Batavia Arrack ( Read more

    Cocktails are excellent. Really enjoyed The Perfect Storm. Whiskey samples are great. Try Around The World #1. Fried pickles and perogies are tasty.

    Good cocktails (they'll also do any of them non-alcoholic, if you want), and yummy bar snacks. Get an order of fried pickles for sure.

    The name is spot on. Great place for serious cocktails. Best Old Fashioned anywhere and a tasty Sazerac!

    If the front bar is crowded (as it usually is) just go to the back and grab a table with a few additional bites. Totally worth the extra breathing room.

    Bartender is really nice, cocktails are great, the bar is clean, and they play great music ( interpol, black keys, arcade fire, etc)

    Great selection of whiskey and the sloppy joe sliders are great! Also the imperial Russian stout

    Definitely not one of my favorite bars around here. They openly use measured pours and it is a little to illuminated. Lacks the character that man other cocktail bars have.

    Perfect spot for a midweek lunch! Try the Truffle Grilled Cheese or Cuban Sandwich and don't forget to eye the bar as the weekend nears...

    I'm a huge fan of Mezcal, a very smokey campfire-like tasting tequila, so I was in love w/ Oaxaca Sunset!

    Boiled peanuts are bomb. A hint of cinnamon/cloves yum makes it warm in your tum. Also, fries = perfection.

    Weekday lunch special is a good deal. Most of the sandwiches are quite good, but don't get the tacos with mahi mahi (they are extremely bland).

    Definition of ‘ehh’ but the choices are limited around here. The drinks are well made though!

    Good environment to casually hang out and not too loud for conversation. The food was ok - safer to go with starters.

    The "Bad Apple" is great. Just a hint of fruit and spice, well balanced.
