5 original bars to try in New York

New York has some very original hidden bars, known only to connoisseurs… Cityoki has picked some out for you.

The Dressing Room

The Dressing Room is based on an original idea that combines three areas – a casual clothes boutique, a bar and a vintage clothing exchange. All you need for a good night out ‘bar and shopping’ with friends. The evenings are livened up even more by concerts and local live DJ sessions so you can get a taste of being a real New Yorker.

75A, Orchard Street, New York, NY 1000


Sycamore Bar and Flower shop

Sycamore has taken root in Brooklyn at 1118 Cortelyou Road, at the back of a florist shop. So, you’d never guess there was a bar here from out on the street, but once you cross the threshold the back room and courtyard are taken up by a big bar with a friendly, fresh and welcoming atmosphere. Why not choose from the beer menu complete with a bunch of flowers? The Sycamore Bar and Flower Shop has become a favourite spot with the locals.

The Cafe Select

Make your way through the restaurant and kitchens, then the staffroom and you’ll eventually find the Cafe Select, which looks like a Swiss chalet… In the basement there’s a piano bar with sofas to welcome New York’s hippest.

212 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10012

In the Lower East Side neighbourhood, hidden behind a thick steel door, is Attaboy, a long bar resembling a coach on the Orient Express. No menu here – the barman mixes the cocktails according to what you feel like…cool!

134 Eldridge St, New York, NY 10002



Hidden away down a street in Chinatown, unmarked, so you have to be a local to find it. Some evenings you’re even asked for a password to get into this highly exclusive New York bar. Inside the decor resembles that of a laboratory and they even feature the medicinal qualities of the cocktails, made up with local organic produce.

9 Doyers St, New York, NY 10079
