Speakeasy-style bar in the East Village offering exotic cocktails in a cool, hard-to-find space.- Google
"Speakeasy with fancy cocktail made from good quality ingredient."
"Good cocktails, but really forgetful apathetic service."

Tucked inside the Japanese restaurant Village Yokocho, Angel's Share is a speakeasy that is known for their creative, out-of-the-box cocktails. As someone who prefers carefully crafted cocktails over beer, Angel's Share is definitely up my alley. Walk up the stairs to Village Yokocho and make an immediate left turn at the top of the stairs, to which you'll see an unmarked door. Once you enter, it's like you've stepped foot into a different world. Almost as if you've been transported back in time to Prohibition. Angel's Share is an Eastern-influenced speakeasy with stylish baroque decor such as the angelic-themed mural above the bar and large windows that offer views of the street below. Floral gold and dark red wallpaper, leather booths and ottomans, fringed curtains, jazz playing in the background, subdued lighting in the evenings, and a gorgeous bar help to create an intimate, sophisticated atmosphere. Tuxedoed mixologists/servers walk around tending to your cocktail and food needs. A huge contrast to the bustling loud Japanese restaurant on the other side of the door. In order to keep up the crowd-free ambiance, they strictly enforce a few rules. No-standing policy. Groups must be four or fewer. No raised voices. Staff is not shy about enforcing and can throw you out in a moment's notice if you violate any of these rules. Perhaps it's draconian, but you'll appreciate it once you're in. My boyfriend, his brother, and I were able to walk in and get seats immediately on a Friday night. We'd been eating at Village Yokocho and about 15 minutes past 6, when they open, we walked into Angel's Share. It was already half-packed, but we were luckily able to score some seats in the back. We ordered two rounds of cocktails: +Serenity (Serenity house-made lychee-cello, ruby red grapefruit, lemon juice and a dash of rose water) +Sweet Lorraine (Japanese rice vodka ao, tomato, water tomato confiture, lemon juice, basil and okinawa sea salt rim) +Flirtibird (Barley shochu mizu no mai, shiso, yuzu juice, agave nectar and plum salt rim) +Cheek To Cheek (Bacardi superior rum, mixed berries, white cranberry juice, balsamic honey, vincotto and topped with yogurt mascarpone espuma) +Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (Blanton's bourbon, cocchi barolo chinato, oloroso sherry, benedictine, jerry thomas bitters in a smoking glass) +Evidence (Earl grey-infused gin, lillet blanc, lemon juice and ginger ale) All the drinks were fantastic. Every drink we tasted was executed perfectly and creatively. Many drinks had Asian-influenced ingredients like yuzu juice or lychee. I particularly enjoyed Flirtibird, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, and Cheek to Cheek. If you're not a cocktail drinker, Angel's Share is also known for their bourbon, scotch, whiskey, wine, and sake selections. Love, love, love this speakeasy. Highly recommend if you're in New York and want a guaranteed good drink. Come early to get a seat, as this place quickly fills up (and for good reason)!

Great cocktails. Great service. Great decor. If you are willing to wait for a seat, this is a great place for intimate drinks. The cocktails are creative and well executed.

Fantastic speakeasy bar with warm intimate decor, deliciously creative cocktails, and superb service. The only thing that was faulty was their closing at 1:30am. :)

Had a wonderful time at this speakeasy cocktail bar! Went in right as it opened at 6PM. Got a seat at the bar right away. It was a true pleasure to watch these incredibly professional bartenders work. The bartenders are the epitome of professional. Attentive but not everbearing, precise but not too slow. I highly recomend stopping by if you are looking for a nice cocktail in the mostly beer-and-shot area of St. Marks.

Gorgeous little bar inside Village Yochoko, an average Japanese restaurant, where the Japanese mixologists serve delicious cocktails. Watching them shake those cocktails is well worth the wait... Staff are really rude though.

Awesome little speakeasy with interesting cocktails and a chilled out atmosphere. A little tricky to find, but I guess that's the point! Try and get a seat by the window so you can watch others, like you, frantically searching the Internet for its location!
