Dear Irving bar, 55 Irving Place. A flight of unmarked stairs, with an interior that looks like a classic gilded age establishment. The drinks ($15) are as intriguing as the décor. From an espresso martini to a drink called "Whiskey Business," everything on the menu is worth trying. Each table also has a buzzer that patrons can use to let their server know when they're ready to order.
And then there was Copper & Oak ..where the only thing on the menu is rare and fine dark liquers. Forget the cocktails, this dark, coppery whiskey paradise can be found in New York. #bourbon #whiskeysister #whiskey
