The Guy that Goes for the Specialty Cocktails and Stays Because it's One of Few Murray Hill Bars Without Sticky Floors

Middle Branch

Guaranteed to be the bar of choice for that guy who thinks he's the first one to Google "cool NYC Speakeasy," Middle Branch is a go-to date spot for the hipster, corporate-sell-out you love to hate. Located in an unmarked two-story townhouse, this dignified bar disrupts the typical Murray Hill mold of graduated fraternity brothers and $2 beer specials. We recommend you slink into a leather booth and pretend you're cool enough to be there.
