If you’re looking for a truly unique night out in New York City, you’ve come to the right place. For my new book, New York: Hidden Bars & Restaurants, my co-author Michelle Young and I scoured the city for Prohibition-era speakeasies, underground drinking dens, and restaurants concealed behind unmarked doors. These places may be hard to find, but trust me, they're worth the effort. The book—which comes out on October 7th—contains nearly 100 exciting locales spanning from the Lower East Side to the outer edges of Queens. Need a quick recommendation? Here are 15 of my favorites.
