One of my favorite after-work spots. The martinis are killer here!
Nice little hidden gem. Chill lounge with great service and a good vibe.
I guess it is relatively new, and not many people heard about this cool place, and this might be the only explanation why this lovely bar wasn’t full on a Friday night. It is not a big place, and it can contain double amount of people if they would organize it in a different way, but then it will lose it magic. There is enough space to privacy, and to be able to hear the person you are with. I saw few couples on their first date, and I thought to myself that there is no better place to meet someone new for the first time. You have private places, or a bar seat. I would choose the sofa. I am sure that in few months, after more people will discover the place, I will not find a spot to seat that easily anymore.
Went here with Dina after work.
Solid cocktail program in a cozy, back of the hotel setting.

It's a bit on the pricey side for avocado toast but it is delicious. The mushroom toast is fantastic. I also enjoyed my iced chai latte with coconut milk. Staff was friendly and attentive. Great find in the financial district. It's not exactly a quick stop so make sure you have a little time to spare.
A trendy Australian cafe that makes my day, that pretty much elevates what I've come to know as everyday breakfast items. Really genius, surprising, and welcome. Coffee, which is everyone's go-to is equally great. The availability of outdoor space makes this a tranquil escape.
It's small but has a light decor and upbeat vibe and pleasant wait staff. The food is good at a not-quite-artisan level and presentation and priced reasonably. There's a small square out front, so the view is a little better than most neighboring venues. Recommended for breakfast or lunch for 1 to 4 people.
The food is good, the quality is good, but the price is outrageous. 13$ for scrambled eggs, and a single slice of toasted bread. On top with the construction site outside, you cannot understand a word. In my opinion not worth the money.
Trendy café with a good amount of breakfast and coffee options. Vegetarian and gluten free options are available. Nice decorations and atmosphere.

Such a great place!!! Very friendly environment and caring servers. My friends got married, they got a congratulatory poster, and we got drinks on the house after we asked for the check! Wonderful atmosphere and excellent service, definitely coming back there. Got an appetizer platter was enough for 4 persons and tasty as well. 10 out of 10. Great experience, suggest it to everyone who wants to have a great time at the dive bar, and it's also right behind the city hall!
You wrote a review for Whiskey Tavern 36 minutes ago 5.0 star rating 9/2/2017 Whiskey Tavern is a great bar. I'm not in this area very much anymore, i used to work in this area tucked next to the edge of Chinatown. Not quite a dive bar, but a very casual atmosphere with always friendly bartenders and waitresses. Taco Tuesdays is a must. The tacos are great and cheap. The beer is served super cold with a smile. This is not the type of place to order a fancy cocktail, but I bet they can make one for you! Check it out now!
Fun bar for casual groups. They have a solid bar menu with lots of appropriately greasy, fried food to go with it. Not at all fancy. Get there early if you want a table because it gets crowded fast (especially with the courthouse crowd). The bartenders are ridiculously fun. Order a round of picklebacks and some food and have a good time.
This is a classic bar. Nice bartenders that treat regulars super well and everyone else as well as you can expect. Good drink selection, good prices, and there's always a nice crowd here. Crowd reaches pretty packed levels on weekend evenings, and a little more quiet during non-peak bar times. They have some pretty great table games like connect 4, jenga, etc. It's a little towards the dive bar end of things, but in a good way.
Of you are looking to find good selection of whiskey then this is not the place for you. The name it self is miss leading. I ask for 1792 and the bar tender said that they don't carry that whiskey. Their whiskey selection is very basic. This place is great to watch sports, have a beer, or just come in for drink. This is one of those dive bars with old classic music playing in the background. Defenetly a plus if you leave in the area, but not if you are looking for something new to try.

This place is so cool. First floor is a tap room. If you just want to down beer and chill with your buds and have. OR - second floor parlor serving small bites and outstanding crafted cocktails. It has a very different feel to it, you don't get that anywhere else. 5 stars for everything. Respect for Authenticity. Cheers
Came in here for lunch with my team to welcome our new colleague. We went upstairs to the Parlor. I had the Chicken Pot Pie which looked and felt homemade with love. The crust was perfect. I would have liked some sauce in the pot pie. The hearty mixture was good but a saucy mix would have pushed it to the top. It was paired with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy but that felt unnecessary since the pot pie had cubed potatoes in it. They can definitely serve the pot pie solo, center of the plate! I went during lunch so I can't speak on the drinks. At the end of our meal it took a little time to find our server to get our check but otherwise it was quite enjoyable. Overall, the location was clean, servers were courteous, food was delicious and filling.
As a craft cocktail fan, I was really hyped up to visit The Dead Rabbit. It did not disappoint. The three cocktails we had were delicious (I would have loved to have more but at $15 a pop, 3 was plenty). I thought the food was great; enjoyed the chips with dipping sauce and the fried fish. The apple crumble was less of a crumble and more of a doughy pie, but still yummy. Very glad to have made the stop here - worth the visit!
Really cool place with tons of NYC historic photos and documents. As well, the drink menu is pretty incredible. Let's not forget the saw dust on the floor. Go... You won't be disappointed.
Great service. Drinks are fantastic, if you like sweet drinks get the sucker punch, laughing hyena, and show-off. Beer is great too, highly recommend the blackthorn cider. Truffle fries are a great snack while drinking.

Great drinks, decent amount of space, and very fitting decor. Understated entrance so look for the number above the door at street level.
Cool spot for drinks, the decor is very industrial which looks awesome. I wouldn't consider this place a speakeasy by any means. This is just a decent cocktail bar. The staff is very friendly and fast. the drinks are well made, but in my opinion not well portioned. Hugh rock of ice with maybe an ounce of a cocktail, it was very tasty but gone in one sip.
The Ship offers a mysterious, intimate vibe with delicious small plates. The cocktails are smooth and potent, and best of all, no more than $14.
Really nice ambiance. Went on a slow dat so I wasn't able to see how busy the place gets. Drinks were nice and the grilled cheese was great.
Amazing place !! Kind of hidden behind dusty building but the inside is great !
