This dimly -lit Lower East Side Mezcaleria has comfortable booths and and stylish Mexican decor. The food is good, the drinks are better, and the service is wonderful.

Church Lounge

The Tribeca Grand Hotel’s lounge is rarely crowded, but always stylish.

2 Sixth Ave.

The pre-Prohibition cocktails at Death & Co. are known all over the city  – one of the top mixology (the science of drink -making) destinations in the city.

The Lobby Bar

This gorgeous drinking area in one of the city’s most stylish hotels brings old world charm with new world comforts. With its cushy red sofas and romantic lighting, the Bowery Hotel’s Lobby has to be one of the most romantic spots this side of Hudson Valley.

335 Bowery


An East Village mezcal bar from the team behind Death & Company, Mayahuel was one of the first of its kind in the city. The crowd of mezcal bars following behind it are not much competition, however Mayahuel’s  “amazing” cocktails and “Mexican Gothic” decor  would give even Mexico City mezcalerias a romantic run for their money.

304 E. 6th St.

The Mulberry Project

Another unmarked speakeasy -style bar serving fantastic drinks reminds us of the Lower East Side’s famed Milk and Honey. This bar has a gorgeous outside area as well.

Pegu Club

This Houston Street bar is the perfect standby. Romantic lighting, good cocktails, interesting decor. We would prefer something a little more hidden, but who can complain with drinks like these?

77 W. Houston St. 2nd fl

The Basement at Macao Trading Company

Depending on when you go, this lounge can be busy or tame. Taking its stylistic cues from the brothels and opium dens of old 1930s Macao, this restaurant basement lounge is red and dim and raucous.

311 Church St.

French, Spanish, Catalan
