Who doesn’t want to get tipsy off chocolate? Toothsome is here to make all your chocolate libation dreams come true! From their on brand old fashioned to a one-of-a-kind  chocolate stout, you can find any style of drink you’d normally order available with a chocolate variation.

Toothsome's Famous Chocolate Old Fashioned

Located in City Walk, this restaurant is no secret. The smoke stacks tower in front of Islands of Adventure for all to see, but the trick is knowing the best way to get in. Most people who want to eat at Toothsome or enjoy any of its chocolatey deliciousness have to check in, where they accept no reservations, and wait usually around 30-90 minutes for a table! It’s a popular place. BUT, the trick here is that you can walk right past the hostess, go straight up to the bar and sit down if there’s space (which we’ve never seen the bar full because no one knows you can do this except the few who frequent)!

Once you’ve skipped the hungry line downstairs, saddled up to the bar and made yourself comfortable, get ready for sweet delight.

We’ve ordered many drinks at this steampunk styled restaurant and are always impressed. From their chocolate renditions of cocktail classics (double chocolate cherry mule, old chocolate fashioned) to dessert drinks made up on the spot (Marina created an excellent custom chocolate espresso cocktail) they all hit the mark for my sweet tooth. Of course they have non-chocolate craft drinks as well, but you don’t go to Toothsome to NOT order chocolate.

Jump the line and zip up the stairs, because now that the word is out, you better grab that bar stool before the chocolate melts! The bar also has the full food menu available as well as their libations. Toothsome Chocolate Emporium is open upstairs and ready to please your tastebuds with incredible chocolate re-creations of your favorite drinks.

Slippbarinn | Hip Reykjavik Bar

Not exactly secret, but hidden within a communal building that consists of hotel, restaurant, bar, book shop, and who knows what else, Slippbarinn can be found in the middle of this new age complex. Our last drinking stop of the Iceland trip was this hip Reykjavik bar with amazing food and original craft cocktails.

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.

Jungle Cocktail Bar | Iceland

Iceland is the first country we’ve visited that has yet to slip into the speakeasy scene, but Reykjavík is definitely bringing the heat with the craft cocktails! Just opened less than two months ago, Jungle is founded by 5 mixologists, previously from Apotek, with a passion to start their own bar focused on the joy of craft cocktails.

Apotheke New York City Speakeasy

There are a lot of hidden bars popping up in China Town to try. Most are decent, but none top the mystery, craftmanship, and authenticity, as Apotheke. So no matter where you go in lower Manhattan, make sure you stop by for a tonic to heal your ailments from the professional mixologists at Apotheke.
