Cocktail Bars

Hi,

I could be wrong, but I thought those gimmicks disappeared along with LA Gear, mullets, and parachute pants. :-)

Gilt has closed, and the restaurant that replaced it recently received a scathing review from the New York Times. My favorite line had something to do with it being a Museum of Unidentifiable Brown Sauces.

I can't think of any bar here in NYC that will put on a 'show' a la Tom Cruise in Cocktail, but there are many, many bars that are serious about cocktail craft. If you want one of those, options include:

Bathtub Gin

Lantern's Keep

Employees Only

PDT

Middle Branch

Raines Law Room

You don't need to go all the way to New York to go to TGI Fridays
