  • The owners of Raines Law Room created a new speakeasy twice the size, with reservations, with many French themed rooms. It's still the perfect date spot, but just bright enough to go with friends.
  • If you like Raines Law Room you'll love this place. Super cute with themed rooms and romantic nooks to steal away and sip fancy cocktails. Reservations will be needed as more people find out about it.
  • Great late night cocktail place. private tables big enough for 6 plus good bar seating for 2. All around a winner.
  • Drinks are elaborate: the Hero of Little Venice is a rummy root-beer float; the Vice Versa (gin, ros cava, grapefruit) tastes like the bootlegger didnt scrub all the soap out of the tub.
  • The whiskey business is a delicious and well-named cocktail
  • Reservations can be made through (gasp!) Yelp:
  • There isn't a bad seat in the house, but if you're feeling fancy, ask for a table in the back room. If there isn't one available, sit at the bar to watch the talented team do their magic.
  • Only tried the wine thus far - lovely. Obsessed with this place!
  • Upon walking in, I knew I'd be a frequent visitor at Dear Irving. The bar is warm and glowing and the cocktail I'm drinking is divine. Raines is great, but this place is killer.
  • Dear Irving, a deadly new cocktail den with four rooms channeling four eras to transport you across the space-time drinking continuum, now open in Gramercy from the owners of the Raines Law Room.
  • Beautiful space! The atmosphere is intriguing and romantic. 4 themed rooms take you back in time from Mid Century to Art Deco, Victorian to Versailles. Bespoke cocktails complete the experience.
  • Hidden, nice, quiet, great cocktails, perfect dating spot!
  • One of the best speakeasies. Great drinks. Good alone or in a group. As a couple you might have to sit across another couple

  • Drinks and atmosphere are perfect
  • This place is so cozy and the staff are really nice. 4 rooms with a different period setting. Great cocktails: I like the Negroni Sbagliato or the Vice Versa.

  • Great new speakeasy right off Gramercy Park by the Raines Law Room team. Take the stairs up.
  • Cocktails, good for groups or dates.
