Dear Irving Speakeasy NYC

by | Sep 15, 2019 | New York City

The sophisticated glitz and glamor of Manhattan can best be found nestled near Gramercy park at Dear Irving. This chic hideaway is sister bar to Raines Law Room, another Manhattan favorite of ours, but where Raines is intimate in its darkness, Dear Irving sets the mood with passionate lighting, crystal curtains, and gold accents.

We recommend getting a reservation before arriving, because this secret is hot commodity. Otherwise, dress to impress and the hostess may let you slip inside to sit at the bar if there’s availability.

Once you’ve made it inside you now have the hardest choice of all; which of the four themed rooms will you sit in? There is the F. Scott Fitzgerald room, the JFK room, the Victoria room, and the Marie Antoinette room. Each are instagram able, elegant, and help you slip back in time. Ordering a drink is easy as they are all delectable and described with detail so that each patron can choose a libation they are sure to enjoy. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the feeling that time has stopped in the romantic vintage capsule you’ve slipped into.

We hear Dear Irving has recently opened up a second location on Hudson, within the Aliz Hotel with floor to ceiling windows for sunset Manhattan views. We can’t wait to see their new space and hope it is as decadent as Gramercy. If you get there before us be sure to comment and let us know how it compares! As for now, we will reminisce on crystal curtains, beautiful furnishings and the interior space of Dear Irving Speakeasy NYC. Gramercy, the original.
