Attaboy is the everyman’s cocktail bar hidden in plain sight on an obscure bit of Eldridge Street. From Michael McIlroy and Sam Ross, the pair that helmed Milk & Honey throughout the late aughts, this understated beauty is the younger, less self-conscious sister that took over the space when M&H moved uptown (there’s a window now, and no reservations are required). The two are the modern-day Abbott & Costello of the cocktail world, chasing and playing off one another’s moves, while charming the hell out of whoever wants to watch and drink. With the same no-menu format as M&H, bartenders feel out your vibe and deliver what are always some of the most solid cocktails in all of New York—and, perhaps, the world.
