For a city that has such a vast list of secret drinking dens, they can’t all be high brow. We have so many speakeasies picked to visit each trip to New York that we’ve had to become quite selective with where to stay and spend at least $17 a cocktail.
If you’re looking to find the best NYC Speakeasy, you’ve come to the right place. The Big Apple is famous for having a growing number of speakeasies and hidden bars. Here are 12 of our favorites!
Hidden within the storage room of an actual ice cream shop on the Upper East Side you will find a top notch bar exploding with candy and color. The line we saw outside of UES. looked like people hungrily awaiting ice cream in the 40 degree weather…but we knew better.
Little Branch NYC Speakeasy leaves much open to your imagination, the name revealing no hint of what you will find hidden below the door jutting off the corner of two streets meeting. The door gives nothing away as it is only marked by a tiny metal placard inscribed “Little Branch” letting you at least know you’ve found the right place if you knew where to look to begin with.
