Ghost Donkey

Top choice bar in SoHo & Chinatown

Laid-back meets trippy meets craft at this one-of-a-kind, classy mezcal house that gives vibes of Mexico, the Middle East and the Wild West. If the moon had a saloon, this place would fit right in. Dark and dim, yet pink, with low-cushioned couches encircling lower coffee tables, this bar also serves excellent craft cocktails. (Try the frozen house margarita! Tasty, right?)

A newcomer to the NYC bar scene, this friendly spot has already garnered acclaim for its large collection of mezcals and tequilas. But it's more than just a gimme-a-shot-and-lime stop. Come here to chat with a bartender who is glad you stopped in (even if you're a total stranger), or to mix and mingle with patrons who seem to have been coming here for years. And did we mention the house frozen margarita? Oh right, we did. Yum!
