Genuine Liquorette

Top choice cocktail bar in SoHo & Chinatown

What's not to love about a jamming basement bar with canned cocktails and a Farrah Fawcett–themed restroom? You're even free to grab bottles and mixers and make your own drinks. At the helm is Ashlee, the beverage director, who regularly invites New York's finest barkeeps to create cocktails using less-celebrated hooch.

Retro-hip bites come from the playful upstairs eatery, including burgers, fries and a buttermilk-battered chicken sandwich.
