This secret gem is the home to a very intimate, charming restaurant and bar. You'll impress anyone you bring here. Plus, the martinis are to jump for joy about!
Situated in one of the best corners of downtown, right off historic Stuyvessant Street, this Japanese cocktail bar is low-key, cool, and vaguely exotic. The drinks aren't necessarily better than nearby craft cocktail standbys like PDT or The Beagle, but there's a certain elan here, and a view, that its rivals can't boast of.
Exquisite cocktail lounge tucked behind a restaurant with charming views makes this speakeasy a must visit!
Best bar!!!! – Best place in the city to have a quiet drink! Me and my girlfriend went there this past friday after hopping around at loud and obnoxious clubs. It was nice and intimate and the drinks were made with care and the service was good even if they are a little on the stiff side. Take your date there, she will love it!!!!!!!
Great Date Place – Went on a date Sunday night... Sat at the bar. Cocktails are unique and the bartenders seem to take extra special care in shaking them up. This is definitely a cool find. Very quaint & romantic! And the sashimi was good too :)
Fun bar, but only for parties of 4 or less! – As long as you're sure not to show up with a party bigger than 4 (they're not allowed), this is a fun place to get a drink. A secret door is always fun, and the ambiance inside is nice.
Stylish, but bad service – The best part is the fact that it's hidden. Step through the secret door in an crappy, hole in the wall restaurant to find this stylish quiet dimly lit bar. So chic! The only pity, though, is that the waiters in the stylish bar are the exact same people who work at the adjoining crappy, hole in the wall restaurant. They're not quite rude, exactly, but just not at all interested in their customers either.
Intimate bar meant for no larger than a party of 4 – If you're looking to get loud with a large group of friends, Angel's Share is not the place for you. The bar is small, intimate and cozy. It's the ideal place to have good drinks and comfortable conversation. A great date place because it's romantic and quiet enough to get to know someone. Angel's Share has the type of atmosphere one would think no longer exists in NYC. Yes, the drinks are expensive but the service and vibe are completely worth it.
ignore bad reviews... – I'm failing to understand the one or two bad reviews here. It's not some cushy hotel bar, but the back room is quite serene. To the other reviewer who complained the server was nasty because their party was too large and seated themselves, if you read the sign on the door, it clearly states they don't take parties of more than four. You wouldn't show up at Milk and Honey and expect to be seated or seat yourself either. The rules are there to keep the place free of riff-raff and it works quite nicely. There are precious few bars in NY where you can expect to have a civilized experience every single time, and this is one of them. For those of you who complained, take yer Jersey girl over to the meatpacking district and stay away from Angel's Share. All the better for everyone involved.
Terrible – Angel's Share has one thing going for it, intrigue. The drinks all miniscule, food was undercooked and mediocre and the experience was an F. Would not go back.
Quiet Getaway – Its quiet and its cosey, its one of the best little bars / lounges in New York. The drinks can be spendy, but they're wonderfully made. Its worth the visit, just not in a huge group.
my favorite secret spot – i've been coming to angel's share for almost 8 years now, and this place has never disappointed me. i love their drinks, and their bartenders are the most courteous i've ever met. start with their lychee daiquiri (light, but it's their signature and is super yummy), and then browse their 10th anniversary drinks. sophisticated lady is great, with a plum at the bottom of the cocktail glass. it's a perfect date place, or you could wait for a booth with 3 other friends. the only drawback is that their limited to 4 guests per party. other ppl complain, but if you're more than 4, it's hard to chat anyways. for parties of 4+, head over to the other bars in the area. this is an intimate place for conversationists...
A Rare Gem – This lounge is a rare gem in a city bedecked in with unecessarily over-hyped trendy bars. Although very crowed, for those with a descriminating eye will recognize this diamond. The bartenders truly understand their art and they execute their tasks with style. Come early. You may need to be patient.
