NY Scotch Lovers - "field trip" suggestions?

Hey folks,

Headed to NYC for a week. Since the Bourbon Library is only open at night, and none of my nights are fee, I plan to visit Keens and Park Avenue Liquor. Any other field trip suggestions if I can find the time?

  1. You might want to check out the Hole In One bar (53rd@2ndAve). It is run by a Japanese fellow and specializes in single-malt whiskies. Some food is served. Do a web search to find more info if you are curious.

      1. Hey All,

        Thanks for the suggestions. I did not make it to them, but I will next time. Keens was the closest scotch establishment to where the deal was taking place, so we ended up going twice. It was a great experience though - got to try all four of their scotch flights.

        Also thought I would share that when I was doing research I discovered that the following establishments are also supposedly good scotch haunts: the Brandy Library (knew about that one), Club Macanudo (cigars too - no sneakers), Lexington Bar and Books (full blown dress code), Hudson Bar and Books, and D.B.A

        Thanks again for your help,
