Foursquare Tips

  • Go to Angel's Share when it's snowing outside. Try to get a window seat. And keep your voices down.
  • Trivia: "angel's share" is a term that describes the wine that escapes through evaporation during the barrel aging process. (I learned this at a bourbon tasting down in New Orleans)
  • Go through the Japanese restaurant and to the unmarked door that faces you as you get to the hostess stand. No parties more than 4. The specialty cocktails are impressive here.
  • I always sit in back or near a window. watch snow. bonus points if you score the couch all the way in back: that's my spot
  • snag the seats facing the windows and watch the people walk by below
  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Get yourself a whiskey.
  • Going nuts trying to find it? You're not alone. Enter through Yokocho and take the unmarked door on the left and enter into another world. Order the Stormy Weather and make interesting conversation.
  • My favorite showy evening spot. Amazing whiskey selection. Elegant environment and a nice view. -Jacqueline Lombard, Top Chef
  • Walk right through the restaurant into this semi-secret room & sit on a stool looking out a window. Order a special drink from the menu (not your usual), and sip it slowly
  • Go up the stairs and into the noodle bar. There's a discreet door on the left that takes you into a beautiful cocktail bar.
  • If you're here for drinks, Storny Weather. The whiskey / strawberry thing sounds exotic but it's super girly.
  • Winner of Best Martini in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Enjoy the view while getting perfectly mixed martinis.
  • Get Mack the knife if you like gin, spice, citrus, and Ginger. It's perfect.
  • True Japanese mixology bar. Great flavors and exotic mixes. Get the Tennessee Waltz even if your'e not a Whisky drinker. The lychee drink is also an A+. Great chill date place.
  • Hidden "speakeasy" martini bar. Very cool
  • get the Tennessee waltz cocktail, superbe!
  • Don't be a rich snob and try to get in with more than 4 people. They will embarrass you (appropriately) and ask you to leave. NYU students, don't come in drunk because this isn't a sports bar.
  • Gaze out the window while enjoying an exotic plum wine at this drink parlor nestled inside a Japanese restaurant.
  • This place has some amazing specialty cocktails, which you can read about in their hefty cocktail binder. Each cocktail has a different story!
  • The rules: no reservations, no groups larger than four, no standing room, and no yelling. Ascend the stairs and enter through the unmarked door to the left of the sushi counter in Yokocho restaurant.
