Boasting one of the most extensive whiskey lists on the East Coast, this refined spirits parlor certainly knows its way around a classic julep. Made with Kentucky bourbon and served in a frosty metal julep cup, it’s a minty and refreshing delight. The nightly live jazz adds an extra dose of Southern comfort to boot.
Finding a good mint julep—that iconic Kentucky Derby drink of icy bourbon whiskey and mint—might be easier down South, but NYC still has a few stellar Yankee options to pair with Southern food. From a down-home BBQ joint to a posh cocktail den, these are the best places to get a mint julep cocktail, perfect for summer drinking in NYC.
