Not a huge fan of cocktails usually, but these were the best I've had. Particularly the Tortuga and Fair Maiden. Great atmosphere and vibes. Cool bar with very good live music. Will be back on next visit to NYC!

I last visited this bar in its previous incarnation back in 2003 and felt at home immediately with friendly staff and a good overall vibe. I returned earlier this month and found that although it is a little more polished these days with live music it has not lost its charm and the staff are still friendly and welcoming. Additionally...

Great place to stop by for drinks in the Edison Hotel when you are in the theater district. Bartenders are very good. We had been there years ago and it's still an old school kind of place. Warning, the drinks ain't cheap but this is Manhattan.

Spent a couple of hours here whilst on a weekend trip to NYC. The music and atmosphere was buzzing mainly catering for a mature crowd which suited us. Table service fast and efficient. Highly recommend.

Nice small bar who had a live 3 piece band the night we were there. One waitress worked the room who was efficient and pleasant. The drink selection as good and the cocktail was wonderful. Will go back again after another Broadway show.

This is a lovely neighborhood bar in the Theatre district tucked in next to the W Hotel. It is wonderfully dimly lit with an extensive list of classic cocktails. The wait staff is incredibly friendly and attentive.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
