Foursquare Tips

  • Great to find a place that knows what a Gin Buck is - and makes a good one!
  • Swanky, consciously old-timey bar from the folks behind Ward III, with excellent cocktails and a never-predictable crowd.
  • My favorite is the George Cohan, with bourbon, Cocchi Americano, lemon and an egg white.
  • Cocktails march on inexorably a la the classics, a few originals, and rum concoctions like Mojitos and Mai Tais made with top shelf booze.
  • Hottest Cocktail: Dark & Stormy - "What sets this drink apart is the fresh ginger muddled in to give a peppery, spicy zing that makes you forget youre in Times Square." - Damon Gravina, bartender
  • We love the super classy and stylish atmosphere almost as much as we love their Dark & Stormy cocktails.
  • The last great dive piano bar in NYC. Karen Brown has been playing here for 15 years. She's a charmer.
  • These guys know how to make a good Manhattan cocktail
  • Stark and Dormy. Say it ten times fast.
  • Pretty much the only place in this 'hood to get a cocktail.
  • They don't serve food, so make sure to eat beforehand. You will likely have more than one drink. Don't be afraid to order off menu. Pick a spirit and have the boys create something magical.
  • Found: a not crowded, good cocktail making, good music having, dark wood decorated, piano bar off Time Square. Never Chevy's again while you're waiting for a show!
  • Get a drink while you're waiting for the bomb threat to be called off
  • Don't let the location fool you, it does NOT feel like Times Square. Great spot if you're in the area (or need a pre or post theater spot). Solid Manhattan cocktail! And live music via piano.
  • Good whiskey and rum selection, live swing music
  • These guys make great cocktails!
  • Arrive after 11.30pm on Monday nights for insanely good jazz; and drink the rum old-fashioned for an insanely good drink.
  • Best Manhattan in Manhattan.
  • Awesome live music and great location right next to time square. Cocktails are great but overpriced!
  • A breath of fresh air in the armpit of midtown. Get the bathroom pass and check out the Art Deco Edison lobby
