Cocktail Bars on the Lower East Side Overview

Hotel Chantelle / SGT - Bar | Lounge in Lower East Side, NYC

While many neighborhoods have enough bars to provide a substantial bar crawl, not many offer the diversity that the Lower East Side cocktail bars have to offer. With plenty of cocktails for every budget, drinking in this shabby chic neighborhood is bound to bring a night full of entertaining options.

With speakeasies being all the rage, there are plenty of hidden gems if you know which streets to look on. Beauty and Essex offers fancy drinks to the high-heeled crowd strutting through this restaurant-lounge where free champagne is available in the women's bathroom. On the flip side, The Back Room serves up equally as delicious cocktails but ordering a beer at this homage to prohibition bar comes with the oh so classy brown paper bag. Meanwhile at French sensation, The Experimental Cocktail Club, world class cocktails are shaken by sharply dressed barmen with a serious knowledge of their booze. Or for a touch of retro flair, Nurse Bettie serves up an excellent drink in this bar that serves as homage to the pin up girl.

Of course specializing in cocktails is not a necessity for grabbing a well made drink at any of the numerous bars in the Lower East Side. All that's necessary is a desire to drink, a love of cocktails and two feet to get in the door. Being able to use them to walk out is at your own discretion.
