The Harrison Speakeasy
For the ultimate prohibition-style night out, head to the Harrison Speakeasy. First-timers should dine at Nicky NY Sushi, the legal storefront, then ask "to see the bodega." Staff will escort you through the cunningly hidden doorway, where you can pull up a bar stool to watch the bartenders in action, or sink into a vintage armchair. Choose your tipple from the newspaper menu, then enjoy a timewarp ride back to the 1930s. This speakeasy serves some of the most innovative craft cocktails in the city, such as 212 VIP Men, a fruity vodka drink that’s hidden inside a book.
