Baton Rouge

Bayou-themed Baton Rouge is a high-end dive that’s strategically manufactured, but still thoroughly enjoyable. It’s rowdy, rollicking good fun; the tone is set by the twangy soundtrack and good-natured staff, who set down a bowl of […]

CopperBay

The bright, expansive bar at CopperBay is a nice antidote to the cramped, dark speakeasies that make up much of the Parisian cocktail scene. It’s unpretentious and accessible, from the perspective of pricing – cocktails […]

Bar 228 at Le Meurice

You don’t need to be a guest at the grand Le Meurice hotel to enjoy the luxury of having tuxedoed waiters serve you solidly made classic cocktail in the intimate, clubby den. But you may need to be a millionaire. The atmosphere might be retro, but at 25 euros a pop, the prices certainly are not. […]

Experimental Cocktail Club

The original (and still insanely popular) speakeasy that sparked the trend in 2007 and spawned an empire that now includes Beef Club, Fish Club, Prescription Cocktail Club and Curio Parlour. ECC sets the standard for tiny, dark and cozy bars with their intricate cocktails. Despite being the oldest of the new wave joints, it’s still one of the swankiest and hardest to get in. […]

Silencio

You’re almost guaranteed a celebrity sighting in one of the warren-like rooms that include a fumoir, movie theater, and stage for bands to perform. That is, if you can get in. […]

Harry’s New York Bar

Famous for being a Hemingway haunt, Harry’s is responsible for the invention of the (now) classic cocktails the Bloody Mary, the French 75, and the Sidecar. Stiff, white coat clad bartenders keep a strict dress code in check so shorts aren’t going to cut it. Pants (sigh) are required if you’d like to make it through the door of this historic bar. […]

Little Red Door

The tiny red door leads to a tiny dark bar with cozy couches, cushy bar stools, and an elevated nook that is ideal for people watching. The bar menu is short, sweet and well-curated. […]

Dirty Dick

This cheekily named Polynesian themed rum bar has a congenial international crew behind the bar, reasonably priced tropical cocktails, flaming scorpion bowl beverages for a crowd, and interesting craft beers to boot. Tiki chic. […]

Le Coq

A bar near Republique that distinguishes itself by using traditional French liqueurs and ingredients as the base of its menu. […]

Moonshiner

Skip the pizza at Da Vito and head directly for the refrigerator in the center of the room. The walk-in fridge filled with beer kegs and hanging hams is an entrance to this elegant but unpretentious speakeasy. […]
