  • The World's Best Bar 2011

Getting inside this secretive East Village speakeasy (which topped The World's 50 Best Bars list back in 2011) is part of the fun. Look for the ‘Eat Me’ sign on St Mark's Place, head into hot-dog joint Crif Dogs and pick up the payphone in the phone booth. A secret door reveals this taxidermy-strewn gem but remember: PDT (Please Don’t Tell). Overseen by Pegu Club alumni Jim Meehan, it's a great bar that doesn't take itself too seriously, with innovative yet unpretentious cocktails. Reservations are recommended. Lines open at 3pm so call promptly for your best shot at a booking.
