Hidden in the back of a Cafe at Chelsea, Bathtub Gin is one of the cool speakeasies in NY that has a great menu and an even better cocktail selection.
The bar's name is an homage to Gin (the drink), that during the Prohibition Era in the United States, became very popular.
The name portrays the bad quality of the drink that was available back then in the Country.
My suggestion would be to try a reservation to avoid the crowded doors.
You can be lucky enough to see one of the burlesque shows that happen during the night.
Address: 132 9th Avenue
