Foursquare Tips

  • A subterranean speakeasy for a secret rendezvous. Ring the doorbell by the gold sign to gain entry and order the Tiffany cocktail, designed especially for Tiffany by Raines Law bartenders.
  • Check-in before going in. There's no iPhone reception inside.
  • Ring the doorbell - the door is always locked. It's like Little Branch but even sexier. Order the Rumble and kick it in one of the comfy leather chairs.
  • This subterranean spot's only marked by a small plaque & doorbell you must ring to be admitted. Inside you'll find perfectly prepared, fresh-juiced, hand-stirred or shaken classic cocktails & punches.
  • Perfect ice cubes.
  • -
  • There is no better scotch cocktail than the Philadelphia Story, which is mixed with amaro averna, st. germain, grapefruit, and bitters. It's smoky, spicy, with a strong hint of citrus.
  • Great date spot if you like her!
  • I love the cord!
  • Highly recommend the Kentucky Buck Fifty if you prefer sweet, strong and spicy. AMAZING.
  • Amazing cocktails, but almost *too* romantic. Be prepared to make out with your companion.
  • it's not on the menu, but ask for the El Diablo.
  • There's a secret garden at this speakeasy that only fits 20 people.
  • You can drink in this standing room only or if available the host will show you to your own secluded, curtained area to enjoy your drink amongst the other hushed speakeasy goers.
  • If you like it hot, and I do, order the Kentucky Buck Forty. Or is it Fifty? Either way, get it.
  • One of the few speakeasy in Chelsea, Raines Law Room underground making it tricky to find -- you have to find a set of stairs that lead to a basement door and then ring a doorbell just to get in.
  • Check out the wallpaper in the restrooms.
  • Gold rush is can't miss. Just don't blame me for the bill when you drink five of them.
  • Goto Raines Lawroom for a drink
  • Sexy wallpaper, awesome booths, delicious drinks. My tip is to leave your name early, get dinner and drinks around the area, and then be ready for Raines at a minute's notice when they call!
