206 Avenue A

New York, NY 10009

This Alphabet City cocktail bar doesn't have the speakeasy air of its West Village sister, which hides coyly above a Five Guys. Instead, it directly lures passersby with its black-and-white awning and raccoon mascot. The Garret's cool but cozy main room features whitewashed brick and a steel-topped bar, where globally inspired cocktails are served alongside Narragansett and Founder's IPA. The space isn't without a speakeasy though: The Garret East is home to Dinnertable, a hidden 20-seat restaurant that only takes parties of 4 or less.
