Thyme Bar


20 W 23rd Street, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Every house cocktail at this speakeasy (under Patisserie Chanson on 23rd) has some sort of gimmick or theme. One tastes like a refreshing alcoholic iced tea and arrives in a golden genie lamp with smoke coming out of it. Another—made with spiced rum and prickly pear—is suspended from the ceiling like a house plant. We genuinely can’t decide if that’s cool or the most ridiculous thing ever. The decor and limited food options (salmon crudo and beef sliders, e.g.) aren’t quite as interesting as the drinks. There are a few small tables with plush round seats and a long bar with some high chairs for two. We’ve dubbed those “loveseat bar stools.”

Apotheke Nomad review image

Apotheke's second NYC location is in a basement behind an unmarked door in Nomad. Stop by for a fancy cocktail in a very dark room.

Undercote review image

Undercote is a dark, plant-filled cocktail bar beneath the restaurant Cote in the Flatiron District. It’s fun, pricey, and slightly ridiculous.

The Chapel Bar At Fotografiska review image

The Chapel Bar is hidden behind a nondescript door in Fotofrafiska (a photography museum in Flatiron), and it’s a great place for some quiet drinks.
