Your requisite Prohibition-inspired speakeasy in Chelsea with a quirky name and a secret door? That’d be Bathtub Gin. Walk through Stone Street Coffee to get in – there is a “bouncer” (you are dangerously close to Meatpacking, after all), but you can pretty easily grab a reservation on OpenTable to avoid any issue. As the name would indicate, gin is the focus. And there’s a bathtub.

Burger & Lobster
The Popular London restaurant chain's first NYC location is in Chelsea, and it has mixed results. The burger is great, but the lobster? Not so hot.

Cull & Pistol is our new favorite destination in Chelsea Market. Say what you will about the crowds, but this is as good as workday eating probably gets.

Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
These days, Employees Only is not the hotspot it once was. But while the crowd might have lost a step, the cocktails have not, and it’s still packed with people every time we stop by.
The Tippler is a big bar beneath Chelsea Market, and it’s the sort of place where you’ll listen to top 40 and talk to a guy in Vineyard Vines.
