Check out The Campbell Apartment for a speakeasy like experience, fully-restored to its 1920's decor. Angel's Share is on top of my list, but if the wait is too long, ask about their sister bar that is nearby - it is a speakeasy for a reason!

Now we're talking! So I asked this question a while back before my recent NYC trip and got some good recommendations here: http://www.trippy.com/question/Manhattan-What-are-your-favorite-speakeasy-style-bars-in-Manhattan

First off, try to swing by Bill's Food and Drink. It's more of a restaurant now, but back during prohibition, it was an actual speakeasy bar. Pretty cool, right?

Please Don't Tell is one of the best speakeasies not only in NYC, but the world, and as you may already know, they have one of the best cocktail programs in the world. Their bacon-infused Old Fashioned is righteous. Really fun experience, and then after throwing back a couple you've got Crif Dogs right there.

Another one of my favorites: Employees Only. It's been a longtime NYC speakeasy and they do fantastic drinks. Also do really good food there, which is rare for a bar like that.


Blind Barber - East Village, NY has an East Village location and Brooklyn location (Blind Barber). First a barbershop (where they give you a free drink with a cut), but then a bar in the back. 

Last, but certainly not least, Milk & Honey, another one of the best cocktail programs in the world. This should be a great start!

The Auction House in upper east side is the most classic speakeasy I know so far: velvet chairs, nice decor, lazy european vibe…. perfect for talking with friends or having a romantic conversation.
