As the weekend approaches, your willingness to drink and unwind increases. New York City spoils you to no extent and leaves you rotten for choice with its numerous bars and taprooms.
There is no denying that, if you’re visiting here or a local, the bars are always going to be buzzing during the weekends and you might just end up standing in the same old place with the same old people drinking the same old drinks.
If you’ve ever wondered that there are some exclusive places that are invite-only or have secret entrances, you’re on the right track!
New York hosts a number of these speakeasies and we are giving away their secrets!
Here’s a list of some of the hidden bars in New York you must visit if you’re looking for a bit of refreshed adventure this weekend:
Attaboy has the amazing and creative drinks like Penicillin (scotch with a hint of ginger) and Fernet-spiked Late Night Reviver, all made by two cocktail geniuses Milk and Honey!
How to Enter: Knock on the door or ring the buzzer at 134 Eldridge St!
2. The Backroom
This bar is all about the whimsical taste of ye olde time. Set in the vibe of the Prohibition era, it makes the list of the most beautiful bars in the city. The cocktails are served in teacups and beers bottles are covered in brown paper bags!
How to Enter: Walk down the stairs of The Lower Eastside Toy Company, make your way to the back alley and walk up the next flight of stairs you see.
3. Sunshine Laundromat
If you’ve ever wondered how it would feel to drink while you’re in the arcade playing games, here’s your chance. Sunshine Laundromat only serves beer and wine but turns out that’s all you need to get turned and game on one of their whopping 30 arcade machines! Don’t forget to get quarters!
How to Enter: Walk but piles of laundry and dryer machines till you find a dryer on its own in the corner. That’s where you enter from.
My work involves me to travel on the train from Washington DC to New York quite often. Trust me, I haven’t found a better way to calm these nerves down!
