Romantic, Great cocktails, Secret or underground

Though this East Village bar’s name (short for Please Don't Tell) reflects its speakeasy vibe, it's far from secret. In fact, PDT, which was opened by award-winning cocktail guru Jim Meehan in 2007, helped usher in the city's craft cocktail revolution, paving the way for places like Death & Co. and Pouring Ribbons. The bar is only accessible through the phone booth at the back of Crif Dogs, a St. Mark's restaurant serving hot dogs. The small, retro-inspired space is dimly lit and has exposed brick walls adorned with an assortment of taxidermied animals. Patrons sip on traditional cocktails, such as the Old Fashioned, made with bacon-flavored bourbon. The bar offers a small menu, and customers are permitted to order food from the Crif Dogs kitchen. That is, if they can get in: PDT is notoriously impossible to get into—call ahead for reservations.
