A tarot card reader and a neon sign reading “psychic” are usually red flags causing most people to shy away. But if you muster up enough curiosity to walk by the fortune teller and pass through the purple curtain, you’ll be generously rewarded.

Alright. So I’ve been here once for one drink with some friends, but the first impression was a meaningful one. Dim lighting and horn blaring jazz take you back to a time when speakeasies weren’t just secretive—they were exclusive clubs for the cool. That’s right, I felt cool here, drinking my Billionaire Cocktail. Watch and be entertained as the bartenders carefully measure gin and cointreau and muddle everything from cranberries to cucumbers as they masterfully craft the Ginger Smash and Pimm’s Cup.

The cocktails are great, but the low-key Manhattan vibe is even better. Help keep it real and leave your bridge and tunnel at the door.

Mesmerizing Bartenders

This faux speakeasy hidden behind the façade of a fortune teller (a mask often betrayed by the crowd, line, and doorman outside) also houses a dining room in the back. You’ll find both going strong late into the night, with the bar sometimes getting uncomfortably crowded. Even so, the cocktails are truly fantastic (as is the food in the dining room!). My favorite thing about Employees Only is how serious the bartenders take their craft. They are sometimes just mesmerizing to watch!

Great mix of Food and Drinks

A bunch of us split appetizers while we had a few cocktails before we went out. For food I'd suggest the mussels and gnocchi. For drinks I'd go with a Manhattan, but The bartenders here are pretty on point so you could ask them to make you…

Tips
  • The smooth Pimm's Cup, made with Cointreau, fresh lime and ginger soda, has just the right touches of cucumber and mint. To awaken the taste buds, try the bright Ginger Smash, a muddle of ginger root and cranberries, mixed with gin and apple liqueur.
  • The list of wines by the glass include a local choice: a rose from the Wolffer Estate in the Hamptons. Whites and reds by the bottle are also available, most between $40 and $50 a bottle.
  • Drop by for brunch between 11am and 4pm on weekends.
  • In the summer months, the backyard garden opens for an alfresco experience.
