Attaboy is the new incarnation of bar located at 134 Eldridge St, which was until recently the home of Milk & Honey.  The brainchild of M&H veterans Michael McIlroy and Sam Ross, some vestiges of the old bar remain, but others have been rethought.  The phenomenal cocktails and lack of menu are the same, but the reservation-only policy, intimate booths, low lighting & subdued jazz music have given way to first-come-first-served, a longer bar, bright(er) lights and an upbeat soundtrack.  We thought we were sad about M&H moving uptown, but Attaboy has made us rethink those feelings. We’re pretty much planning on being here erryday.

Who: A date or a few good friends – space is still limited so smaller groups will be easier to accomodate

What: It’s still the kind of place where you tell the bartender what you’re in the mood for, and it arrives. But if you’re really craving a beer, they have that too.

When: This is an all-the-time bar – great for pre-dinner drinks, after dinner drinks, instead of dinner drinks, and late night

Good for: Low key date – Casual drinks – Classic Cocktails – Impressing people – Late night

Reservations: Not accepted  |   Max Group Size: 6, but fewer is better
Food: Meat & cheese plates coming soon   |   Wine: Yes  |   Beer: Yes
