Fork in the Road’s Favorite Cocktail Bars in New York City


It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions, or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite Cocktail Bars.

“I love the ambiance of Raines Law Room — it feels like you’re in someone’s living room and I always have a fun time there.” –Lauren Shockey

“I often drop in at Death & Co. and ask the mixologist to make me something shaken with gin.” –Robert Sietsema

“Clover Club.” –Chantal Martineau

“The Rum House. A rare example of a great old bar changing owners and still being a great old bar.” –Rebecca Marx
