Dear Irving Speakeasy NYC

Sep 15, 2019New York City

The sophisticated glitz and glamor of Manhattan can best be found nestled near Gramercy park at Dear Irving. This chic hideaway is sister bar to Raines Law Room, another Manhattan favorite of ours, but where Raines is intimate in its darkness, Dear Irving sets the mood with passionate lighting, crystal curtains, and gold accents.

We recommend getting a reservation before arriving, because this secret is hot commodity. Otherwise, dress to impress and the hostess may let you slip inside to sit at the bar if there’s availability.

Once you’ve made it inside you now have the hardest choice of all; which of the four themed rooms will you sit in? There is the F. Scott Fitzgerald room, the JFK room, the Victoria room, and the Marie Antoinette room. Each are instagram able, elegant, and help you slip back in time. Ordering a drink is easy as they are all delectable and described with detail so that each patron can choose a libation they are sure to enjoy. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the feeling that time has stopped in the romantic vintage capsule you’ve slipped into.

We hear Dear Irving has recently opened up a second location on Hudson, within the Aliz Hotel with floor to ceiling windows for sunset Manhattan views. We can’t wait to see their new space and hope it is as decadent as Gramercy. If you get there before us be sure to comment and let us know how it compares! As for now, we will reminisce on crystal curtains, beautiful furnishings and the interior space of Dear Irving Speakeasy NYC. Gramercy, the original.

Los Altos Authentic Miami Speakeasy

Finally a Miami hidden bar that oozes authenticity, class, and just the right amount of flair. Los Altos authentic Miami Speakeasy is a great stop when you want to avoid the club hype on South Beach.

Bodega Grungy Hidden Miami Speakeasy

Oh Miami, you were just not our cup of tea unfortunately. We really had been looking forward to was Bodega Taqueria y Tequila. The front part of the restaurant was awesome, Bodega Grungy Hidden Miami Speakeasy through the hidden entrance, not so much.

Slippbarinn | Hip Reykjavik Bar

While not exactly hidden, this hip Reykjavik bar with amazing food and original craft cocktails was the last drinking stop of our Iceland trip.

Pablo Discobar | Reykjavik’s Retro Hidden Bar

For a fun and quirky time, with great 80s music, and shining lights, don’t miss out on Pablo Discobar, Reykjavik’s Retro Hidden Bar. This slightly hidden bar up on the third floor of Burro restaurant in Reykjavík Iceland, has all the charm and spunk one could need in a night.

Dutch Kills | NYC Speakeasy

When you locate Dutch Kills in Long Island City, it will not look like you’d expect. There is a little neon “bar” sign outside of a grubby dive bar looking wall. If the sign is on you can go on in and find a completely different atmosphere inside.

NYC Joints that Missed the Mark

For a city that has such a vast list of secret drinking dens, they can’t all be high brow. We have so many speakeasies picked to visit each trip to New York that we’ve had to become quite selective with where to stay and spend at least $17 a cocktail.
