Foursquare Tips

  • Upscale cocktails in an over the top baroque style lounge. Bar Manager Greg Seider mixes up innovative culinary-inspired drinks with infusions, flavored mists & more. Great for impressing a date.
  • A deliciously sexy new addition to the UWS. Go into Burke & Wills and head toward the back. You'll see a padded black door on the right side. The expert drinks and sensual atmosphere await upstairs...
  • Happy hour 2 for 1 with some dollar oysters, this speakeasy is definitely the best one in UWS. Get the Old Fashioned.
  • Cool atmosphere but drinks absurdly expensive at $18. Stay downstairs & drink great cocktails for $12.
  • Try the margarita. So good!
  • It is a bit more expensive than I'd like, but the cocktails are perfectly made and the atmosphere is great. Not typical UWS.
  • If you want a classic cocktail, forget it! You end up with something from the bartenders acid trip.
  • Get a cocktail off the menu. Cricket's version of French 75 is delicious. Great date spot.
  • Loved being swept away from our dinner to this exclusive room upstairs for top notch cocktails. Just lovely.
  • Try the "cheese plate with dulce de leche". Great atmosphere, not loud and cozy! Best speakeasy in the UWS, definitely a must!
  • The only speakeasy spot in UWS. Delicious but expensive drinks, not paired up with the most friendly and polite service tho.
  • Wonderful hideaway, classic space and a beautiful bar. Lovely cocktails, elegant martini service.
  • Greg Seider, bartender at Manhattan Cricket Club, reimagined BuzzFeed (the iconic technology company) as the John Lee Hooker. Click Read more for ingredients and details.
  • Great fancy cocktails in a neighborhood where this doesn't really exist otherwise.
  • Came here by myself to chill, write, have a quick drink..ended up staying for three! Cory (or Cody??!) was fantastic behind the bar; made me 2 custom mezcal cocktails. Perfect. Baroque ambience. Come!
  • Great date spot and phenomenal drinks!
  • Cocktails!
  • Closed on Sunday nights. Whomp.
  • Definitely get the martini.
  • They make their martinis almost perfectly. Make sure to get one.
