This is my favorite speakeasy that I have tried in NYC so far, and I've tried a few (PDT, Death + Co, Back Room, etc.) The reason is the ambiance and the quality of the cocktails. If you have seen any pictures of the establishment, you have seen the impressive mural above the bar setup; you possibly have not seen the view down onto the streets of East Village, the tucked away lounge area in the back, or the entrance through the Village Yokocho restaurant. The drinks are expensive, but each one we have tried was impressive in its own way. The Daahuud was awe-inspiring in its serving, utilizing smoke within the glass for aroma, taste, and atmosphere. Mack the Knife is still my favorite cocktail I have ever tried, so much so that I am in the process of currently infusing gin with oranges at home to try to recreate something that comes close. Some will complain that you cannot have a party of more than four, but I believe that helps to keep the atmosphere: it is not a party room. Going to some other speakeasies at an off-time can ruin the feel of the place, but Angel's Share has always stayed true to what it was in my experience. I will be back again several more times.

Angel's Share is a speakeasy bar that's located behind a restaurant called Village Yokocho. There's no sign to get in here whatsoever. When you do find out the entrance, you're transported to another world. The lights get really dim, the music is gently playing, and everyone here is having a good time. The drink list is extensive, many varieties with different spirits as the base: vodka, whiskey, rum, etc. There's a comprehensive scotch list for those who like the indulge. Service is top notch here, everything is carefully crafted with regards to the mixed drinks and pour gently for anything that's served by itself. There are no reservations accepted here, it's a first come, first served basis. The plus is that they accept credit card and have ample seating for groups. Good for a night out with close friends or a date.

I love me some whiskey and who knows whiskey better than kentuckians or the Irish?... The Japanese! This place is a great hideaway with a charming view whether you are looking outside or are looking inside at the angel with devil horns watching the bartenders every move. Back to the whiskey. As I was saying this speakeasy sets itself by their eastern influence. There are some people that wonder why you would ever blend single malts but these people haven't tried a couple single Malts blended in a sniffer glass that have been coated with smoke- mind blowing. As any foodie knows, the nose can completely ruin or enhance a dish. These guys certainly have made an effort to delight the senses and invigorate your evening. Oh and btw it is on the second floor hidden in front of a ramen shop that you have to walk up and through to find this peaceful corner where the angel's share migrates.

This Asain speakeasy located near St. Marks is a nice treat for those who like their cocktails with a touch if whimsy and intrigue. This posh spot is covered in warm wood finishing complete with an angel mural over the bar that lends to the bars name, ' angel's share' a nod to the amount of whiskey lost during the whiskey barreling process. Yamasaki, a Japanese whiskey, happens to be my ultimate fave when it comes to the brown liquors but the entire menu is a smorgasbord of delicious cocktails to suit a variety of palettes! A fun place to hit up for the drink lover in your life.

Amazing cocktails. I tried the Speak Softly and their spin on a Dark and Stormy, both of which were sublime. The Speak Softly was flavored with green tea, but the sweetness of the drink kept it perfectly balanced. The Dark and Stormy similarly was wonderfully balanced and complex - rather than being overwhelming, the ginger aspect played well with the rest of the flavors.

Price is on par with other speakeasy bars in the city. They have a very cool Asian twist on their fancy cocktails. The drinks aren't particularly hard-hitting except for the one that comes in the tiki glass (can't remember the name). The view is great and the low lighting and quick service make for a great date spot... Try not to sit by the door though or yearning patrons in line will make you feel rushed.
