Manhattan Cricket Club
Greg Seider leads the bar program here, which is quite a contrast from his downtown cocktail spot, Summit Bar on Avenue C. The cocktail menu changes seasonally and lists about a dozen cocktails. However, feel free to ask the bartender for something bespoke if you don’t see something you like on the menu.
MCC offers visitors a great date spot or place to catch up with a few good friends. There’s usually jazz music playing in the background and you can actually have a conversation without straining to speak up or hear the person you’re with. If you’re stuck ordering, go with a classic cocktail. We’re partial to the old fashioned and the one at MCC is particularly good.
Pro tip: Grab the pair of seats by the window if you can. In the winter this is the perfect spot for a cozy night cap or the best place for a 1:1 with a special someone.
