Gotham Magazine / 9 Bars That Serve Creative Cocktails & Incredible Bar Bites

Why We Love It: This classic establishment is everything New Yorker's love about speakeasies: quiet, private, opulent decor, and strong sips. Come dressed to impress, and pass the night away on bar favorites like Just a Kiss Away, created with lemongrass-black pepper infusion, Martin Millers gin, and lemon juice, topped with cava. Or, opt for their bespoke martini service where you can choose among three options, and indulgent add-ons like caviar on buckwheat blini and crème fraîche.
What to Eat: Looking for something a bit more filling? Peruse the menu, which features options like salmon rillette drizzled with scallion vinaigrette, and chicken liver mousse with grilled bread and pickled onions—they're just as memorable as the cocktails. 226 W. 79th St., 646-823-9252
