Attaboy

Lower East Side
Speakeasy

Run by Sam Ross and Michael McIlroy, protégés of the late trailblazing bartender Sasha Petraske, Attaboy is the closest thing to a legitimate speakeasy today. There’s no website, no phone number, no menu, and no reservations. Show up right when they open at 6 p.m. to snag a barstool or booth in the miniscule bar—a favorite among industry insiders. Bartenders have an encyclopedic knowledge of cocktails, so place your trust in them and they’ll surprise you with something you’ve never tried before.
