Why locals recommend it
For some sultry jazz and delicious cocktails, this is my speakeasy spot! You’ll see a rotating cast of the city’s top classic burlesque artists dance on top of the bar, teasing and titillating the crowd. Wednesday nights especially stand out because of the super steamy shows by Broadway Brassy and Brass Knuckles. The Pillow Talk is an excellent cocktail to elevate your evening. It’s super sensual, with vodka, fresh-cut honeydew, lime, agave, and champagne—an aphrodisiac in itself. Tastes like a dream!

Locals tip: there is live jazz on Tuesday night The door is somewhat hidden, but there is always a bouncer waiting outside and is friendly. Suggest going early before it fills up as it is small.

Mixologists in pharmacist-style garb whip up complex cocktails at this off-the-beaten-path hideaway.

As a personal quirk, I rarely visit bars. I do remember this place having some pretty tasty drinks though, and a speakeasy vibe!! In the heart of Chinatown!!

Another class NYC speakeasy, this place looks like a pharmacy from the 1890s. Amazing live jazz on Tuesdays, burlesque shows on Wednesdays, and tons of expertly crafted cocktails served by bartenders in old doctors' coats, this is a place you'll never forget.
