Nitecap is a speakeasy located in the basement beneath a restaurant (Schapiro’s) on the Lower East Side. Unlike Attaboy (another nearby speakeasy), you don’t have to be let in by a host/gatekeeper, so despite the equally-expensive cocktails it feels relatively casual. It can get packed, but if you can manage to snag a roomy booth it’s a great time for a group.

CloudM Rooftop Bar
CloudM is the rooftop at the CitizenM Hotel on the LES. It isn’t the coolest rooftop in the world, but it has a great view, and it stays pretty quiet.
Last Light is the rooftop bar at an LES hotel called Sister City. It isn’t huge, but it has a decent-sized patio, and it’s great for outdoor drinks.
You can skip the Cajun restaurant on the ground floor of Canary Club on the LES, and head to the jazz club downstairs.

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.
If you absolutely want to go drink at a speakeasy, Attaboy (on the Lower East Side) is one of the best options.
Home Sweet Home
If you need to go out and dance on the Lower East Side, Home Sweet Home is, at this point, a classic option. It's divey, but there's big disco ball.
