  • Try the Ex Pat (a bourbon sour with mint) or the Peat's Word (a Last Word with Scotch).
  • Getting inside this spot is somewhat of a mystery, but if you're lucky, you'll love their cozy atmosphere & no menu needed drinks. Also check out the rules posted in the bathroom.
  • Try the 'Penicillin." Honey, ginger, lemon, scotch deliciousness.
  • An unlisted phone number and an entrance policy that requires a referral and an appointment make this flagship Sasha Petraske spot one of Manhattan's most exclusive lounges.
  • There is a fine line between trendy unfinished look and cheap unfinished. The latter applies here. Atmosphere is subpar, as a avid fan of the old location I am deeply saddened by this new spot.
  • Entrance is by referral and appointment only. Many New Yorkers assume that Milk & Honey is an urban myth.
  • Go to Milk and Honey and drink anything with Whiskey
  • Enter this speakeasy through the most non-descript of entrances and be transported to the prohibition era and enjoy what the bartender makes you. Make reservations.
