Double Chicken Please

New York

50Best Accolades
  • The Best Bar in North America 2023, sponsored by Tia Maria

Since taking the crown as No.1 in North America’s 50 Best Bars 2023, Double Chicken Please is New York City’s prize hen. The titular ‘double’ alludes to co-founders GN Chan and Faye Chen as well as the bar’s duality of concepts. The front room is casual, an upscale tribute to the soda shops once ubiquitous in DCP’s Lower East Side neighbourhood. A handsome, brass-tap system dispenses Asian-inflected cocktails like the popular #3 (apple brandy, cranberry, spiced pear, ginger ale).

The back room, dubbed the Coop, offers a refined lounge accented by banquettes, downlighting and wood furnishing. A second menu offers liquid takes on culinary classics like Red Eye Gravy (Irish whiskey, coffee butter, corn, walnut, wild mushroom, microwaved coppa). Rounding out the experience, DCP offers some unique Chicken Sandwiches such as a Mochi Donut dressed with pickled pineapple, cilantro and strawberry. This year, the bar celebrates its highest ranking in The World’s 50 Best Bars list, picking up The Best Bar in North America title in the process.
