How do you choose the best whiskey bar in a city like New York, where the choice is almost infinite? It helps if you try a lot of them… Within The Flatiron Room, more than 1,200 varieties of whiskey fill the shelves: of these, over 500 labels are rare, including Gordon & MacPhail, the Maltman, and the 27-year-old Glenmorangie Pride.
The location founded in 2012 by Tommy Tardie, is recognized worldwide as a must visit for whiskey enthusiasts, spirit connoisseurs, jazz lovers, and foodies seeking expertly crafted cocktails, all in a relaxing atmosphere. Although whiskey is a big part of The Flatiron Room, the venue also caters to those who are not whiskey lovers. They serve other traditional cocktails featuring vodka, tequila, rum, wine and champagne.
The venue is also a tribute to Italy in the 1950s. Jazz performed live on a stage flanked by velvet curtains, catapults you into the period of the roaring twenties.

They serve scrumptious snacks such as cheese and charcuterie dishes and also more decadent dishes like Scottish eggs, oysters and braised ribs. The kitchen also offers vegans, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.
