Why locals recommend it
To get into this not-so-secret speakeasy, you have to first walk into Crif Dog, an NYC hot dog institution, then through a telephone booth. There are 35 seats, and lots of weird taxidermy. It’s tough getting in as a walk-in, so make a reservation. You can sit in the bar drinking an amazing cocktail while eating a bacon-wrapped hot dog. Try the Benton’s Old Fashioned, made with bourbon and bacon fat wash. Even if it’s not on the menu, you can always order it. They also serve a great mezcal mule with passionfruit and ginger. This is a pioneering bar in the global cocktail scene for a reason.

Patrons who enter through a phone booth in Crif Dogs next door sip novel cocktails in a dark space.

One of the most famous speakeasy bars in the city. Go into the Crif Dogs, on left is a telephone booth, behind it is a very upscale swanky cocktail lounge. I would say it's a must do for NYC bar scene.
