  • Once through the front door it feels like you have been transported back to a 1940's cocktail lounge, plush seating, dim lights and a huge old oak bar. Drink a Whiskey Sour.
  • Bail gimlet is amazing. This is the original mixology bar!!!
  • Hidden cocktail bar tucked away between noho star and gato. No windows and good drinks.
  • Sit at the bar. Slightly musty but definitely has an old-school charm.
  • Has a musty old gentlemen's club vibe, if you're into that sort of thing.
  • Swanky, pricey, dimly-lit, with yummy cocktails. You may lose track of time there - no windows, etc. Drink carefully.
  • Popcorn RIP :-(
  • Don't be discouraged by the pet store smell. It is a great place.
  • When Im not out at the juke joints and dive bars, Ill be here.-Jimmy Bradley , Top Chef
  • Looks fancy, but a really great place to get drunk. Love the Manhattans - three is enough for anybody. Well, maybe four...
  • Seems like the type of place I'd take a mistress if it was 1961. Discreet, sexy, and strong drinks. I'm a fan
  • The old fashioneds are good... and strong. Good place for a quiet drink.
  • A deep cut.
  • Not sure why there are so many negative tips about Temple Bar. Great cocktails, very low frat boy quotient = good times
  • Agree with Irma Zandl - basil gimlet rocks
  • There's a gin and prosecco drink here called the Betty Draper.
  • Relaxed and chill atmosphere- strong drinks and great service. Ordered the femme fatale, if you like bourbon, this is your drink.
  • dark, sexy room. great for dates. great cocktails.
  • Gone from being my secret place, suddenly packed with zero tables available. What's going on??? If you do go, try the penicillin - my fave winter drink !
  • So happy to report that temple bar has got its groove back. Excellent cocktails. Basil gimlet is my usual.
