The Distinguished Wakamba Cocktail Lounge

543 Eighth Ave
Manhattan, NY 10018

Midtown West


A whimsical mix of old New York grit and kitschy tiki styling, the Distinguished Wakamba carries the neighborhood dive bar torch in an area that typically caters more to the after-theater crowd. Tiki torches, palm trees and other Polynesian knick-knacks compete for space with locals of all stripes, tourists, college kids and dive bar connoisseurs at this beloved hole-in-the-wall (Anthony Bourdain has singled it out as one of his favorite dive bars in the United States).
