The Back Room

For access to this ersatz speakeasy, look for a sign that reads THE LOWER EAST SIDE TOY COMPANY. Pass through the gate, walk down an alleyway and up a set of stairs to find a dimly lit den fitted with a gleaming bar. Cocktails are poured into teacups, and bottled beer is brown-bagged before being served. A trick bookcase leads to the real “back room,” a VIP-only lounge.

I love this speakeasy! The cocktail menu is great! And unlike many other bars, here that make sure your drink ha the right amount of alcohol in it! The decoration is perfect, it really takes you back in time! Sometimes they have life music or free swing lessons if you're early, among many other events. Make sure to find out the password so you can enjoy a cocktail at this lovely secret spot!
