    Yes, you can actually sit in a vintage-style bathtub! The owners place a lot of emphasis on authenticity, and you can see it in the decor and the staff’s attire. This hip speakeasy has ample space, dancing, live music, and burlesque shows.

    The Stone Street Coffee Company is actually a very real, fully functional coffee shop (with micro-roasted beans from Brooklyn), but walking through an unmarked door after hours leads you into yet another trendy speakeasy cocktail lounge.

    Hidden behind Stone St Coffee Company and marked by a red light, this bar is known for its Pimm's Cup.

    This bar might be many things but not a speakeasy. It's a club filled with barely legal people. No conversations are possible due to the volume and the menu is overcrowded with exotic cocktails far off from the expectations of "the best gin bar in town". It has a novel entry way through a coffee shop but that's about it. Absolute waste of time to wait in line and take the cab ride there.

    Do not go here. The drink are terrible!! And it's 16 a drinks you're better off getting a six pack at 7 eleven and drinking on the street then weird pretentious cocktails that taste terrible. We live a few blocks away and tried it many times and trust me it's been bad every time...

    Came here with a group of girls for a quick drink before dinner and I ordered the gin gin cup - such a wonderfully refreshing drink!! One of the girls I was with tried it and perfectly summed it up by saying it tasted like "nature in a cup" :)

    If you want the full on novelty of the hidden speakeasy, this will satisfy you. I previously have been to Death and Co. but they aren't 'hidden'. Here you pass through a fake cofee shop, great for if you wanted to show your friends/take someone out and want the thrills of that kind of place. As always- low lighting, and you're pretty much there for $16 cocktails - this to me is standard for these sorts of places. We were there early in the evening and on a day without the burlesque on (shame). So saw the bathtub, and a group of blokes stood in it, but thats the extent of that. Its a much smaller place than i imagined, so i can see why booking is recommended (i did book, but about 30mins to 1hr prior). It loses score points for me because I really struggled to find a cocktail I wanted to try. I was well aware they are Gin based, but if like me you are a fan of the 'red' flavours: strawberry/cranberry etc... you'll be disappointed. I chose a prosecco with orange oil and grenadine which was nice though. Glad i've been, think it ticks boxes for what its there for. Think it would have been better on a more eventful evening. Considering it being quiet, were were sat very close to other couples... if you're not into people loudly talking over music (it was disco style) and hearing it all, this isn't for you. One girl at the bar had a cracking voice that permiated the room! (But that's not this place's fault..)

    This place is HUGE fun. You enter through what looks like a tiny takeaway coffee bar. A woman at the disguised door lets you into the back room, which is wonderfully atmospheric - dark wood, low lights, period music, table and chairs discreetly screened. There are a host of specialty cocktails, many infused with herbs or egg whites or elderflower juices or other such concoctions. The one I tried was simply delicious, a specialty of the evening not shown in their website menu. There are small plates for sharing nibbles, always a good idea when you're going to the theatre with two drinks under your belt. Like so many hipster cocktail joints, it's pretty loud. Or lively, depending on your tolerance. With a fairly secluded table, we managed quite well with conversation. A truly fun and special place, one which we will definitely revisit when we're in the neighborhood - which is often. Cheers!

    Went here on a Saturday night, with a reservation which I highly recommend even if you're planning to visit early on a weeknight. The cocktail list was great, and service was decent, especially given the fact that the bar was packed at 8:30pm. Really pretty, and nicely located near some solid restaurants if you want dinner beforehand. I recommend the Gin-Gin Cup; definite winner.

    We arrived at 8pm for our reservation for 7. They sat us at a table that comfortably sat 4-5 and when we said something the about it the host was very nasty saying "this is the best I can do". She offered no suggestions or anything. Anyway we moved on and tried to make the best of it. So we planned to have dinner but they never brought us dinner menus. Despite the fact we were told we only have the table for 1.5 hrs. At 9pm after waiting we went the The Chester a few blocks away and had an amazing time. My suggestion would be to skip this place and try The Chester

    In a hidden gem of a bar, our group drank excellent craft cocktails. The bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly. I would come back in a flash. P

    What an amazing time we had here. Birthday celebration night for me while spending 5 days in NYC with my husband. I had done a bit of research while in the UK and this place kept coming up. I had a few emails with them which were always answered very quickly, despite the time difference, and always with a lovely cheerful tone. We didn't eat there just had some amazing cocktails. Photos taken in the bathtub, such a fun place. We met the loveliest group of girls from Toronto and had a brilliant time. Roll on our next New York adventure which will most definitely include anothee visit to this gem of a place.

    We lucked out -- totally -- stumbling into this speakeasy on a Saturday evening around 6pm and nabbing a walk-up table. The hostess told us that she needed the table back by 7:15 for a reservation. Deal! We all had a cocktail and were out before our replacements arrived. Best cocktail at the table: the Anti-18th.

    The Bathtub Gin is a clandestine restaurant (speakeasy) very well decorated (1920's style). We liked the staff who was really friendly. We were there for a Sunday brunch to see the burlesque performance. The burlesque was good though only 3 performers were present that day. The 3 performances lasted in total less than 20 minutes. We were disappointed about the food (quite expensive and the quality was not there).

    .....however, the drinks were good and served quickly. Very crowded and loud around 8pm, this place appears to be popular among the locals. Maybe it is the secret door you have to enter through, and the doorman that has to approve you, or something. I would have not been into this at all as it was pretentious to me, but wasn't my decision to make. Had drinks only, no food.

    Loved this funky, classical but modern Speakeasy Bar, hidden behind a Coffee Shop. Definitely make a booking. Stayed for dinner and multiple cocktails, Ivory Key cocktail was the very best I had in all of NYC! Shame we didn't visit on a night that the burlesque performance was on, but worth the visit regardless. Would recommend and revisit :)

    It was a good speakesy experience - hidden entrance, bartenders/waiters dressed in 20s theme. Super crowded so do make a reservation before you visit.

    No pics as inside was pretty dark. Thought we were bound to talent spot George Clooney or Brad Pitt, alas no. Great gin menu and extensive menu for other alcohol. Nice share platters. It was busy and crammed. From the street the location looks like a coffee shop. Big security dude out the front who opens the door and offered to take our jackets, and a back door opens and that is bathtub gin. Gold coloured bathtub in middle of floor. Good for a photo shoot.

    I almost don't want to tell you how much we loved this restaurant, but they deserve good press. If you like fun, interesting experiences and gin or other cocktails you have to go here. Step 1) make a reservation Step 2) get there on time Step 3) order your drink. The small plates were delicious try the short rib sliders, cheese & jambon. My drink was The Swordsman. Enjoy!

    We went to Bathtub Gin for the fun of visiting an old fashioned speakeasy. The only indication that we were heading into anything other than a coffee shop was the bouncer at the door. The hostess opened a hidden door in the wall and showed us to our table. The drinks were a little over priced, but fun and the food was very reasonably priced and the highlight of the visit. Absolutely one of the best burgers I've ever had and delicious truffle fries. Fun atmosphere for a short period of time, but a little loud for an entire evening. Be sure to make a reservation

    Bathtub gin is in the Chelsea neighborhood of NYC. The entrance is actually through the stone street coffee co. Its behind a plain door in the coffee shop. The coffee there is actually pretty good. Bath tub gins decor is like a Victorian style bar. The bar is larger than i expected and there are actually many booths as well as bar seats. The drinks are fanciful and the wait staff was attentive. They also serve a delicious menu but we mostly go for the cocktails. They also have burlesque nights but we have never been there when a show was being performed. There is also a large ornate bath tub in the center of the bar area that is the name sake of the bar. We usually stay in chelsea when visiting NYC and bathtub gin is our go to place for a night cap.

    Dropped in a couple times for coffee during the day before I met one of the bar staff that encouraged me and my friends to stop by for the bar being from out of town.. when we went at 2:30 am the doorman said a $90 prepaid tab was required per person and not to waste his time asking questions.. rainiest day of the year and quiet everywhere. Had money to blow but didn't feel like giving it to them after dealing with the doorman. Lame.

    This cosy speakeasy bar is hidden behind a coffee shop front with a hidden door to the bar. Atmosphere is warm and cocktail selection is extensive. We were meeting friends and had a booking at a table. Unfortunately we were early and staff refused to let us sit u til our entire party arrived. There were no seats at the bar so we had to stand for 30 minutes until our friends arrived. This didn't make sense to us as there was no one siting at any fi the tables. We were eventually seated and pleasantly surprised to be there on one of the 2 nights of the week they put on a burlesque show (Sunday and Tuesday) Entertainment was absolutely amazing - the dancers were fabulous. Worth it for the show.
