    Great menu, bartenders are nice and top-notch, and the playlist is always good. Everything here has a classic vibe without trying too hard. Overall great spot to grab a drink. Foods pretty good too!

    Good cocktails, a giant outdoor seating area, and tasty snacks put this one squarely on the Date Night list. And they have some of the friendliest bartenders to boot.

    This elegant den boasts some of the best drinks in the city, in an atmosphere reminiscent of Prohibition-era nooks. Let out your inner rebel with a glass of Bordeaux to make this experience perfect.

    Known for innovative cocktails with classic ingredients, The Richardson's "Higgins' Sarsaparillas" made with Averna, Ginger Beer, & Red Wine is simply delicious. Pair with the house made deviled eggs!

    Deviled eggs are a must at this dark-wooden, sexy cocktail lounge that plays great music and features friendly, knowledgable bartenders.

    Tonight I was reminded of that brooklyn attitude. This is not to say the drinks weren't good but I am glad to call lower Manhattan home.
