Middle Branch

Join us on Saturday, May 10 for a special Manhattan Cocktail Classic event at Middle Branch! 

Middle Branch is the latest addition to the Petraske New York cocktail empire that is slowly making its way uptown.  It’s also a bright spot in an otherwise black hole for cocktails.  The spacious two-floor townhouse has standing room on the ground floor and table seating upstairs, complete with exposed brick walls and a small fireplace (read: super cozy in winter).  The staff are all Milk & Honey and Little Branch alums, so you can feel comfortable ordering all your pre-Prohibition favorites, and their newer inventions – all at an affordable $12.

Who: Group of friends, or a low-key date for a fun night out

What: You can order off the menu, but we recommend bartender’s choice

When: We’d hit them up just about any time they are open, especially for live music on Mondays and Wednesdays. At peak times be prepared to wait for a table.

Good for: Low key date – Casual drinks – Groups – Fun for singles – Happy hour – Late night – Large windows that open in summer

Reservations: Not accepted  |   Max Group Size: N/A
Food: None   |   Wine: Yes   |   Beer: Yes
