  • "It's a former speakeasy where you still feel as though you're getting away with something. Even in midtown."
  • An NYC gem....stop by before it moves....
  • on mon/tues/weds you get the pleasure of the ragtime-esque piano player. be sure to tip him well :)
  • Old school!!!
  • A gem of a hideaway. A bit pricey. Specialty is whiskey.
  • glass of wine & autumn root crudite w/ piano playing in the bar area. make sure 2 check out the secret room on 3rd floor. gorgeous. i want 2 live there!
  • Classic and classy joint... Piano man is good.
  • Have the Tom Collins. It's amazing.
  • Very old school NY but awesome. Here on a Wednesday night and Elliot was tearing up the piano. Bring your parents- they will love it!
  • Totally bizzare & rude staff. You mine as well serve yourself and guess what they serve on the menu. I nearly had to beg for a menu.
  • '20s decor remains en vogue at this multi-story restaurant and piano bar, once a top speakeasy.
  • Girls bathroom is 2 floors up. Otherwise the tip is to sit at the bar and hang out. Bartender called me a wild woman. Hope for the same.
  • Be there it's like a flash back in the mid 1920's.. Food, pianist, old sounds, friendly atmosphere, design.. everything is very good!
  • Ewww..onion soup! But killer from the 1890s!
  • Frequently on those top lists of "best bars in America" and deservedly so. Stop by for a step back in time.
  • Check out the amazing memorabilia from the late 1800's thru the 1920's. This place is like stepping back in time.
  • Fun place... although, I had a ghost encounter in the womens restroom.bu
  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. It's a former speakeasy where you still feel as though you're getting away with something. Even in midtown. Order a Rob Roy.
  • Piano player is singing his little heart out.
  • If you have to be in the east 50's, you should drink at Bill's. It's a tiny but potent former speakeasy and sure beats all the lame Irish pubs scattered around that nabe.
