Hours: Mon-Sun 5pm-2am

Part of the small but proud collective of spirit-savvy bars in relieving the cocktail dearth of the Flatiron district, Rye House attracts both the after-work and the mixology crowd. So seating in the long, country-chic space tends to go early (if you want a good spot, arrive before 6pm). A spot at the granite bar lets you see the action firsthand, but if you’re looking to nosh while you drink (Rye House has a belly-lovin’ menu of sophisticated comfort foods) sit under the gem-like lights that hang just above packed seating in the back. You may have to push your way back there, but Rye House is worth crowd-maneuvering. Mixologists Robbie Gonzalez, Jessie White, and J. Rosser Lomax—who oversees a serious brunch drinks menu (not for the Bellini set)—are on hand to assuage jangled nerves with creative, deliciously potent seasonal cocktails.
