Some of the Best Cocktail Bars in NYC

Some of the Best Cocktail Bars in NYC

Bartenders in New York have a reputation of being experts in cocktail crafting. Cocktail bars in New York are ever competing to see which bar gets to pour its customers with the best stuff. The bars are a place where you can get both old timely drinks and the hush vibes. The first thing you need to think about when planning a trip to the Big Apple is finding a hotel in NYC (in Sweden they say hotell New York) that suits your budget. Then you need to make a good online research and find out which are some of the best bars that you want to visit. To help you out with that below is list of some of the best cocktail bars in New York City that you should consider as your next libation destination.

Pouring Ribbons

Housed at 225 Avenue B, second floor, this cocktail bar is owned by some of the top bartenders in the city. Run by Toby Maloney, Alchemy Consulting, Jason Cott and Troy Sidle, there is no doubt that the Pouring Ribbon is a talent powerhouse. The cocktail bar is found on top of a famous liquor store and this dose provides its customers with a refreshing dosage of unmatched unpretentiousness. The décor of the bar doesn’t seem to make any references to the usual vintage speakeasy trend. Pouring Ribbons largely focuses on the experience of its guests with a two scaled cocktail menu; spirituous to refreshing and adventurous to comforting. You can try their Closing Bell – Palo Cortado, Appelton Reserve Rum, Penunsula Sherry, Green Chartreuse and Batavia Arrack.

Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog

The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog sits on 30 Water Street and is one of the newly established cocktail bars in the city. While New York City seems to comprise numerous speakeasies nowadays, this bar seems to take its visitors to earlier periods as it reinterprets tipples dating back to the 19th century. The main floor of the bar serves craft beer and classic drinks while the more genteel attractive lounge upstairs offers cocktail seated service. The cocktail menu offered by this bar is quite handsome and the booklet menu has over 70 mixed drinks ranging from juleps to cobblers, daisies and fixes, all of which have been researched painstakingly and history has never been as awesome as in this bar.

Evelyn Drinkery

The Evelyn Drinkery is yet another bustling scene in New York City for cocktail parties. The cozy haunt features a spacious attractive backroom and has several categories of drink menu. The spiked phosphates are otherwise referred to as boozy, long drinks, egg creams, twisted classics and house cocktails. Craft beer and daily punches are yet other liquid offerings that you can find at the Evelyn Drinkery. It is one of the best cocktail bars in NYC to go for a date especially if you try their NYC cream that includes cacao milk, 1796 Santa Teresa, seltzer and chocolate syrup.


The Attaboy bar continues the common trend of a bartender becoming a bar owner. Formerly known as the Milk & Honey, Attaboy was opened recently by Michael Mcllroy and Sam Ross, who were both Milk & Honey veterans. Top-notch cocktail drinks are available on request and the bar actually has no menu as such. With louder music and brighter lighting, the Attaboy doesn’t require guests to make a reservation.

Drink All You Can at Rio De Janeiro

Drink All You Can in Rio De Janeiro

Beach, sun and sand – those are just some things that come into mind upon mention of Rio De Janeiro.  Of course, the fun does not stop there.  There is so much more to Rio De Janeiro than merely just soaking in the sun and getting a good tan.  If you are a party person who loves to dance the night away, mingle with new people and drink all you can, well, Rio is most definitely the perfect vacation spot for you.  Just imagine partying Brazilian style.  If you think you know how to party in your side of the United States, you are about to discover that there is so much more to partying, drinking and dancing than what you are actually used to. 

It’s the time for my annual vacation and I decided to try something different this time.  And so I decided to fly to South America and taste the wine and beer that they have there; dance to their local tunes and maybe meet a couple of party goers just like myself while there.  I was not disappointed.  It was a good thing that I didn’t go there blind because I did my homework before leaving and checked out the highly recommended bars there.  I found drinkedin.net most helpful.  Not only did the site have a complete list of the best bars there but it also has reviews so you know what to expect.

In my first night there in Rio De Janeiro, I hit the road and went to Bar d’Hotel.  It is one of the popular night clubs in the area and for a very good reason too.  The place was really beautiful in a Southern American way.  They had a singer with a wonderful voice that you won’t be able to help but dance along.  And of course, they served beers and wines that I have never heard of in my life.  Must be their local classics.  My first night in Rio was pretty hard to beat … or so I thought.

Just when I thought that last night’s partying and clubbing was the best of them all, I went to Al-Farabi and that bar is a pretty hardcore party place too.  Upon entering, you immediately know that you are in some South American / Brazilian bar and that’s really what gives the place its charm.  They also served some exotic alcoholic drinks and so I tried those that I wasn’t able to try the night before.  When the alcohol  kicked in, I found myself laughing, dancing and drinking the night away!

I went to Bar Das Quengas on my third night and it was slightly different from the first 2 bars that I visited primarily because it has a Parisian feel to it.  The music was intoxicating though and I found myself loving every minute of my stay there.
