Came in here one night before dinner. Two friends came with me to keep me company because I wanted to try the place but they weren't drinking because they're on medication. Service: The barman made a nasty quip about me being the only one drinking...More

Specializes in drinks with a variety of bitters. The bartender is amazing! Solo act for about 30 people in crowded, noisy bar. Personable and relaxed - and he makes great drinks. Place can get loud and crowded so pick your moments.

this place hosts 20 people maximum, drinks are very good and take while to be prepared perfectly. The presentation of each drink is in unusual glass or bottle. Its worth stopping by this place for a drink or two.

Teeny little bar with incredible cocktails. We loved drinking here! The bartender (max) was warm, friendly and helpful. If you like unique craft cocktails, don't miss this spot!

My wife and I stumbled upon this place. I'm new to the bitter liqueur world, but I love it nonetheless. They have all things bitter. Go. Go now. It's tiny, but the drinks are great.

First off the space is gorgeous, warm, inviting, quirky, and naturally so, not like some places that "try" to be that. Their selection for bitters, amaro and cocktails is unlike no other. The staff and servers are passionate, geeked out (in the most favorable, complimentary...More

This is a small little place that specializes in bitters. You have to be able to handle that after taste with each sip. I ordered a negroni- it was way too bitter for me. My husband got something with dark rum his was much better....More

What a charming little bar. Stopped here to get a Negroni (the internet told me this was the best one to be had in NYC). It was mixed with skill. Had a second cocktail I liked even more (though, unfortunately, the name escapes me). The...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
