  • Found behind a secret door next to Crif Dogs, this place is a favorite for classic and tweaked cocktails. As seen on Travel Channels The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.
  • Call the number at 3:00 PM sharp on the day of and make a reservation. Watch your dates face when you bring her to a hot dog stand.
  • Order a Sixth Street cocktail, which calls on the complex spices used at the Indian restaurants lining E 6th St. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • Underground cocktails in the East Village by master mixologist Jim Meehan.-Jimmy Bradley , Top Chef
  • Get a seat at the bar and ask your friendly bartender for something not on the menu.
  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. (That phonebooth thing? Pretty cool, right?) Ask the bartender to suggest a drink. It'll be excellent.
  • Try chef Sue Torress addictive signature Torres Tots, with oozy Chihuahua cheese, chorizo gravy, chile de rbol, chipotle crema and scallions. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • Bring your out-of-town visitors here. Now I know everyone in NY has been here & done this, but man, nothing puts the awe in your cousin's face like going through a phone booth
  • "Phone lines open at 3 p.m., yet it is common for PDT to be fully booked by the time you finally get through a 3:07 p.m." --"Secret Bars of the East Village"
  • The coolest thing about this place is how you enter- via phonebooth!
  • The East Villages most unsuspecting and sexy speakeasy, where bourbon is laced with honey and hot dogs go gourmet. If prohibition hits again, this is where youll find us.
  • Bentons Old Fashioned: bacon infused bourbon, maple syrup, bitters. Fantastic.
  • Here's how you get in: Enter Crif Dogs, and veer left into a phone booth.Bam: youre inside. Enjoy the kitsch on the walls and try to avoid thecalorie-busting deep-fried hot dogs (if you can).
  • Despite the name, sorry, we've told and so have many others. Enter through the phone booth and go back in time to a prohibition era speakeasy. Sit at the bar if you can, the bartenders are great.
  • Go to PDT and get the bacon flavored bourbon. They use Momofuku bacon fat to flavor it. The tater tots are an excellent companion.
  • No longer great, no longer exclusive, no longer a secret either. This speakeasy clientele is now slobs in sweatpants.
  • Expect a long wait for the great drinks at this East Village cocktail destination.
  • Get the WMF while it's still on the menu. It stands for Whisky Mango Foxtrot. The combo of Japanese Whisky, sherry, beer syrup, and mango vinegar will make you think wtf?!
  • Short for Please Don't TeII, this speakeasy bar is located in the East Village on the crowd streets of St. Marks.
  • PDT: the secret bar for douchebags from New Jersey who google "secret bar" + "NYC"
