The city doesn’t sleep, so why should you? From dive bars to hidden speakeasies and to New York City’s best kept secrets, mark these cocktails bars as your must-see and must-do during your stay in the Big Apple.
THE HANDY LIQUOR BAR, 527 Broome Street
Fancy a bit of quiet down time with a strong cocktail? The Handy Liquor Bar is one of New York City’s many hidden bars – located underneath Chalk Point Kitchen. The interior emulates an authentic and timeless NYC situated in the heart of classic SoHo. On Friday nights, there’s live piano music; on Saturdays, a four-piece band; and you’ll need to whisper a password to consume alcohol after 11pm. The cocktail menu changes according to season, but expect classics like Gimlet, Manhattan, Mint Julep, and the Sazerac.
