Super Cool Speakeasy Vibe: The Little Branch

The Little Branch bartenderWhen we had friends in town, we wanted to take them somewhere very "New York." They are both cocktail lovers and we had all heard about The Little Branch, a tiny, hidden lounge known for its incredible bartenders. There's no sign - just a corner door and other people milling around waiting to get in. I normally refuse to wait for any amount of time in New York but here it's fine - they don't want to overcrowd the space. After waiting for 1/2 hour on 7th Avenue, we were allowed in, seated at a booth, and ordered drinks. We all loved it, especially telling the bartender what you do and don't like and having her come up with a special drink just for you.
