    Just like all of the other cocktail bars in the City (quality & price) but this one has a cheerful & respectful hostess who helped me and my guest get good seating. Highly impressed. Up & Up, indeed.

    Amazing option in the area if you're into the speakeasy/innovative cocktail scene. Sometimes there's nothing like a Manhattan though (very good here).

    Boozy creative cocktails with a strong bourbon and scotch leaning menu. A welcome reprieve from the madness of Macdougal street. The Nampara Cove was an old fashioned riff with pisco and scotch mist.

    Extensive cocktail menu, amazing speakeasy environment. Me and my wife together had 5 different drinks, lost track of each ones but were delighted by them all. We did have an amazing time!

    It's both a welcome respite from the insanity of NYU land and also chilly weather and blustery winds. Their seasonal menu's got belly warming cocktails like the Conflict Mint ($15). Read more

    Excellent cocktails in a very cozy atomsphere. Really unique flavors and decently strong. It was surprisingly empty on a Friday night, and all the drinks were a flat $16. I'd definitely come back.

    Had a great Manhattan here and tried some of the other cocktails. Great service and really enjoyed not being in a crowded bar where I could talk to someone and enjoy the music playing.

    Shaddock smoke cocktail- if you like strong smokiness in your drink. Taste of Chez Juan- refreshing with a hint of ginger. Screendoor slam- bourbon & honey, cant go wrong.Foster Ave-tastes like melon!

    The Screen Door Slam cocktail is pretty legit! Maker's Mark Bourbon, aperol, honey, vanilla bean, and absinthe. Sweet, delicious, and super easy to drink.

    Come with friends and people watch- everyone else here is on a date. Order Zuzu's Petals and ask for it extra spicy (tequila or mezcal with ginger, lime, habanero pepper, rose water).

    If you are going to pay $$$ for a cocktail, it better be good. That's why you should go to Up & Up. Drinks are really damn good.

    The drinks are amazing. Ask the bartender if you're on the fence. The drink with habanero in it is probably my all-time favorite; it's got a great, smooth kick (whatever that means)

    The screen door slam is a great introductory bourbon drink with a good dose of sweetness, but still strong enough for an old-fashioned fan to enjoy.

    The Up and Up has these dope things called 'Halfies'. It's a half-sized cocktail. This is the move for when your friend with the weird stomach issues forces you to get a drink instead of dinner. Read more

    Good cocktail place in the Village. Our Manhattans were great. A little bit of a different vibe then other cocktail bars due to location.

    Very big fan of the cocktails and wallpaper at this fine establishment. The drinks are solid and very healthy pours. Menu is very clear, either drinks are served up, on the rocks or tall.

    Superb cocktails in a quiet, dimly-lit, classy speakeasy. Wait times on weekends can be over an hour, so prepare to wait.

    It's a good cocktail bar, especially for the area, but there is a sense of off-putting pretense that doesn't match MacDougal. Bar would be better positioned an avenue further west.

    Nice underground speakeasy. Good cocktails. If the place is crowded cocktails can take a while to be served.

    This place really captures the flavor of the Village in Manhattan. I went once and look forward to going again.
