But first you have to be screened carefully by the resilient doorman. The address reinforces that this visit will experience a bit prohibited and unique.The interior has clung onto that opulent old world feel: long, comfy couches line the bare brick or upholstered walls, and...More

Very mysterious which is good, and the vibes overall were chill. Drinks are quite expensive though, with an average of $20 per drink. I had two drinks here with different friends, and none of us liked the taste of them. Not sure I would like...More

Located in the infamous "Bloody Angle" of Chinatown, this is a fantastic location even when it can be challenging to get a drink. It's always crowded but some of the waitresses are really kind and will help you if you ask nicely and with a...More

And I love Absinthe, so this has been on my "must visit" list for some time. From the drink selection to the atmosphere, it lived up to my expectations. The charming and rather handsome bartender did not hurt, either. I highly recommend the Lucid Absinthe,...More

After dinner at Mission Chinese we walked over here for drinks. At the edge of Chinatown, this place was once an old opium den, apparently. Good vibe, great energy, a very cool atmosphere. Drinks very inventive and good, but expensive even by NYC standards.

Located in Chinatown, Apotheke is an unusual bar-lounge with live music ( not sure if they have every night). They make unique cocktails with unusual ingredients, an excellent presentation and incredible taste. Just look for it (not easy to find) and give a try!!

Mixing a drink at Apotheke is art + science! So fun to watch the bartenders. Amazing menu and fun live music. Highly recommend!

This is an amazing experience of speakeasy bar. You have to book in advance. Then you will receive a password that you have to say to get in. On Wednesdays it has bourlesque nights that is the best!!!

Get lost in NY's Chinatown and finish your night at 9 Doyers street, a curving alley in the heart of Downtown Manhattan. You won't find a sign at that civic, just a doorman who will let you inside, if he likes you and if the...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
