New York City’s drinking culture goes way back and the city’s bartenders have long been trendsetters in the cocktail scene. Add a little live music and your group’s own wish list of things to see in the city, and you’ve got a truly unique custom experience that can span anywhere from two hours to the whole day!
For our briefer booze adventure, you can choose a neighborhood you’d most like to explore or put your trust in our local expert’s hands. West Village is a great place to start, given its historical ties to Bohemian culture and the more recent rise of speakeasy-style bars. Between carefully crafted Prohibition-era concoctions, enjoy your guide narrate the history of the neighborhood, including Greenwich Village and its music scene.
If you choose to add more time to your tour, we’ll have the option on certain evenings to sip our beverages with some live music, which might be anything from a jazz set to folk bands.
Other neighborhoods to add as you experiment with modern-day twists on the classics include the Flatiron District, home to architecturally fascinating buildings and plenty of places to grab some New York-style street eats in between drinks.
Over in East Village, see early tenement housing characteristic of this neighborhood and stop in one of the oldest operating bars dating back to mid-19th century! If you’re more in it for the booze with a view, follow your guide to Chelsea for a walk along the elevated High Line. An extension of this tour could also include adjacent Hell’s Kitchen, a haven for LGBTQ bars and businesses.
Regardless of the neighborhood and sites you have in mind, we’re able to build out your custom experience with New York’s best local drinking establishments in mind!
