Haute cocktails aren’t easy to come by around these parts, but this intimate salon—tucked in the back of the Iroquois Hotel—provides an inviting nook for enlightened tipplers. Marble tables, pale blue velvet chairs and Impressionistic paintings help conjure the European salon scene of the 1920s and 1930s. Meanwhile, a small library of cocktail tomes (The Savoy Cocktail Book, Jerry Thomas’ Bartenders Guide) is reflected in the classic mixology behind the bar. Among the more esoteric throwbacks is a heady Boulevardier, a sort of love child of the Negroni and the Manhattan that mellows the spicy bite of Elijah Craig bourbon with Campari and sweet vermouth.

A beautiful, classy, candle-lit bar inside the Iroquois Hotel - one of the few quiet spots to get a well-made craft cocktail in midtown. Great for an intimate date or deep conversation with a bestie who appreciates a strong drink, the bartenders will make recommendations and create an exquisite beverage based on your needs. Try to go late night after the after-work crowd dissipates
