One in a handful of New York City’s first classic cocktail bars, Little Branch’s aesthetic is deeply rooted in the evocation of 1920s speakeasies—a style that was big back in the mid-aughts. Unlike many other venues of the same ilk, Sasha Petraske’s underground bar has weathered the changing of eras and still feels secreted away in the sexiest way possible. Hidden below a nondescript building in the West Village, LB has and continues to see some of the city’s best bartenders pass through this always-bustling den. As such, dealer’s choice is never a bad decision here.
