Foursquare Tips

  • Try the alcohol!
  • Bluegrass on Mondays and Wednesdays. One of the best spots for a cocktail in MidTown.
  • For those of you who have wandered over this side of town and wonder whether this place compares to its little southern cousin: yes, it absolutely does. Come on Mondays for the live bluegrass.
  • They have good ice
  • Fabric coasters were a nice touch. Bartender was happy to discuss my likes and dislikes resulting in exactly what I wanted to sip on in my hand. Ginger candy was delicious.
  • If you're looking for something smokey, I recommend doing the bartender's choice and asking for the penicillin.
  • Cozy little spot in murray hill! Sister of little branch. When in doubt, ask the bartender for their recommendation.
  • Knowledgeable bartender = Spectacular drink. Ask for something with citrus and ginger that's not too sweet.
  • Top five cocktail bars I've ever been to... and that's a lot. The bartenders take huge pride in the work they do. Humble, pride. Highly, highly impressed.
  • Really nice place in an area that doesn't do cocktail lounges too well. Really tasty cocktails and our bartender was great! She really knew her stuff. Will be back!
  • Bartenders are extremely pleasant and lovely! The Whiskey Fix is amazing. But Bartender's Choice is always a fun gamble.
  • Low lights, custom cocktails, cool vibes.
  • Ask for the Gordon's Breakfast. It's a spicy gin cocktail that's absolutely delicious.
  • Not a fan of only cash option & ofcourse no munchies with cocktails :( But a great find thanks to my friends :0)
  • Sure, the vibe isn't as sexy as at Little Branch, but the drinks are just as top notch.
  • Get the "bartenders choice". Tell them a few ingredients you like and let them do what they do best. Intimate and cozy. Often live jazz.
  • Cute spot that has a live band now and then. It gets kind of loud but the yummy personalized drinks make it worth it.
  • A charming watering hole in the middle of all the dreck.
  • Get the Torchlight or Expat!
  • The old guy at the door won't let you in if the bartender feels too rushed by the crowd.
