GofG Staff Picks: NYC's Best Speakeasies

We are huge fans of trendy night spots with a low, subdued ambiance. We also love old school decor and staff that dresses black tie, specialty cocktails that take us back to prohibition, and the feeling that we're doing something wrong (even though it's right). We've compiled a list of our favorite trendy speakeasies, ones you have to go through a back door or know a friend of a friend to get into. Whether you're a tourist or a long time resident of NYC, you should get to know these hard to find places, as they'll serve you right after a long day of work.
