The nattily attired bartenders are deadly serious about drinks at this Gothic saloon, a pioneer in New York's now relentless mania for craft cocktails. Behind the imposing wooden door, jet black walls, cushy booths, and chandeliers set a luxuriously somber mood. Tipples here are consistently among the city's best, many of which have propelled mixology trends across the country. The inventive and classic concoctions include the Sweet Hereafter, a Latin American martini riff made with floral pisco, St.-Germain, Dolin Blanc vermouth and Cocchi Americano.

Death & Co would get 5 stars if they did not make you wait for an hour to get in even when it is empty. My two favorite things in the entire world might be pop corn and dirty martinis and a place where you can get both. Their dirty martinis are made with pickled green tomatoes which is probably the greatest dirty martini I have ever had. I have tried to re create it it is impossible. They also give you a mini carafe with you extra martini so you basically get two!
This place is great. It's not as tough to get in as some of the other speakeasies in the area (PDT). The drinks were delicious, I ordered the Blood and Thunder (tequila based) and my friend ordered the Devil Inside (rye based). Both were excellent. We went on a Sunday night, so the place wasn't crowded. We were able to sit right up to the bar and watch the bartenders make our drinks. There are also cozy booths for larger parties.
