Pegu Club, Milk and Honey - any others?

Are there any other places in Manhattan that do the quality of cocktails as Pegu Club and Milk and Honey?

  1. Plenty. Flatiron Lounge and Little Branch, East Side Co. Bar (the latter 2 have the same owners as M&H).

        I had no idea that M&H's owner had two other bars. Learn something new every day on CH ;) How do they compare? I love M&H but it can sometimes be a hassle to get in when you havent planned.

          I haven't been to M&H, so I can't compare.

            Haven't been to Long Branch but east side is much different than M&H. East Side has the same speak easy type entrance but the vibe is much more relaxed. You also don't get the same level of service - you order from the menu and don't get the invetiveness that you get at M&H. Cocktails are good but it's a different experience.

        2. Bar Masa has seasonal fresh fruit cocktails.

            1. Thanks. I'm about to go through the process of trying to get into Milk and Honey. I will be in NYC on Monday for a quick business trip and am hoping to go there on Monday evening. I have a phone number. Any words of wisdom?

                Well you can only book a reservation a) the day before and b) if you plan to get there by 10pm. So my advice to you is plan to get there before 10 and call the day before (they open at 9).

                If you plan to go after 10, its just luck of the draw if they have a table available when you call a half hour before you want to drop in. If you're willing to sit at the bar, that can help too (I actually prefer to sit at the bar, its fun to watch them work there and to admire the 3 different types of ice, etc).

                I would think Monday wouldnt be too hard though at any time.
