A very cool speakeasy, laid back and unpretentious. Came here on a Sunday night, so though it was packed, not unbearably so. Only had appetizers, but were on point, as were the drinks. Great bartenders and overall friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit at least...More

Every busy, fun, atmospheric cocktail bar has the same drawback - it takes soooooooooo long to get served you're more likely to die of dehydration than get drunk. Not Employees Only, the bartenders here are incredible. Like a cross between the Tasmanian Devil and a...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

They do accept reservations. I would call as soon as possible because they do get quite packed at night. Make the reservation and if you change your mind you can always cancel! :)
