Need a recommendation for a bar for daughter's first legal drink

JCT_UCB | Sep 6, 201110:17 AM

Hi all,

So my eldest will be in town for a day next week from college and I'm going to treat her to a great day in Manhattan. I'm about to move from NYC after 30 years here, so I am going through some stages of grief that I am "treating" with great food and cocktails as often as is possible.

She will turn 21 the day before she arrives so I want to take her to a great bar in either Manhattan or Brooklyn where she can tell the bartender to come up with something great based on her favorite spirit for her first legal drink- kind of a fun thing that she will not be able to afford on her own very often.

So I guess I am looking for a place with a good-natured and friendly mixologist who might get into the fun of this. I'd prefer Manhattan, but my girl loves Brooklyn, so that is also a possibility.

I personally like the Flatiron Lounge, but the service is somewhat hit-or-miss.

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated!


Flatiron Lounge
37 W 19th St, New York, NY 10011
