12 Super-Secret Hotspots in NYC

Williamsburg has become a top weekend destination, and more and more remarkable restaurants and speakeasies have been popping up throughout the neighborhood. As far as secrets go, a favorite is Larry Lawrence, a smoke-friendly bar with a unique, low-key atmosphere. It’s an easy-to-miss location, with an uninviting entrance at the end of a long, dimly lit hallway and a sign that simply says “Bar.” Inside, however, is an open, intimate space with one-of-a-kind drinks at reasonable prices. The balcony is the perfect place to get a minute of fresh air or have a quick smoke. This is a great place to finish off a night in Brooklyn, or to spend a relaxing midweek evening.

    Definitely want to try some of these bars! What is the dress code for say, Little Branch?

    Bathtub gin is one of the greatest in NYC. Its my go-to place with my college buds. 😀

  3. What a great resource! I’m going to use this list the next 12 dates I go on LOL

    Instrata looks pretty cool. Their “Gramercy” location is more like Murray Hill though… Cool concept. More buildings should have concierges and other services like that.

  4. Will definitely check out these places when I’m in NYC. Who knows, I may even hop from one place to another, they are all gems! 🙂

    The Raines Law Room and Death & CO looks so cool! I’m going to get a drink (or three) at them this weekend. Please do more articles like this!!!

    These look so hip! But am I too old to go? What’s the average age range at these places? What should I wear??

  7. Fantastic list! I love checking out spots like this — you always meet interesting people at them.

  8. I’ve been to a few of these places and they’re great. It’s always impressive when someone brings me to a truly hidden gem like some of these, rather than the typical spots (like Top of the Standard, although I love it there too…)

  9. Courtney Watson

    What a great list!! I’m going to save this and check these places out one-by-one.
