Five NYC Mixology Spots You Can't Miss

Jun 16, 2012 —  Home to thousands of places peddling palliatives at every price point imaginable, New York is a helluva place to have a cocktail.

Granted, it’s not always easy. Some of the city’s top mixologists lay in wait behind velvet-roped doors not even Rambo could get through. Unless Rambo was in 12-inch heels…

…and looked like Lara Stone instead of Sylvester Stallone.

But hey, fine-crafted libations don’t have to come with an exclusive air or even an exorbitant price tag, and while you’re obviously paying a little more for expertise that extends beyond the use of a bottle-opener, mixologists in New York have enough sauce in their shakers for everyone.

So if you’re willing to drop mad cash on a unique beverage fit for a king or just looking for the same classics grandpa enjoyed before he and grandma made your dad, then you should check out these five mixologically magnificent NY bars that will surely tantalize your taste buds.

Not sure you can top the cocktails at Lovers of Today, but Weather Up and Fig. 19 both come pretty close.

Booker and Dax is awesome, especially because you can grab dinner the next room over at momofoku ssam, which totally holds its own as a restaurant.
