New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Please note: this business is now closed; nycgo.com keeps record of many old and closed venues. The only clue is an alterations sign in the window (the space was formerly a tailor's shop). Even if you do find the graffitied door, you can't simply walk in--you must text or email to reserve. Still intrigued? You should be. This stealth speakeasy will transport you to the 1940s: Sinatra croons on the sound system, couples chat in semicircular booths, and candles offer the only light. Owner Sasha Petraske can readily mix more than 400 drinks; yours arrives on a gleaming silver tray with a slender block of hand-cut ice. If you're lucky enough to find the phone number, mind your manners when you arrive; house rules include "Gentlemen will not introduce themselves to ladies" and "Don't invite anyone you wouldn't leave in your apartment alone."
