A dozen New York City bars made this year’s list of North America’s 50 Best Bars, including SUPERBUENO, Overstory, Martiny’s and more. Here they are in order of ranking with a quote from the survey.

Ranked #2 SUPERBUENO – “Consider the signature Mango Martini (tequila, mango eau de vie, sauternes, green mango, honey) or the Adobada Bam Bam slushy, a frozen symphony of mezcal, adobada falernum, pineapple, lemon, pineapple shrub.”

Ranked #3 Overtstory – “An expansive wraparound terrace offers guests the chance to soak in the glittering energy of the city…”

Ranked #4 Martiny’s - “Chef Wayne Cheng, a veteran of Masa and Eleven Madison Park, creates culinary gems worthy of the cocktails.”

Ranked #7 Double Chicken Please – “The concept is fast paced and hip, and so is the crowd.”

Ranked #12 Katana Kitten – “An impressive command of Japanese techniques and ingredients merge to produce familiar cocktails as you’ve never tasted them before.”

Ranked #15 Employees Only – “White-jacketed bartenders perform their work up high, free-pouring Golden Age cocktails with aplomb.”

Ranked #20 Dante – “Dante is credited with revitalising the negroni’s popularity in the US, as well as introducing a generation to the garibaldi, a refreshing mix of Campari and fluffy orange juice, squeezed to order.”

Ranked #31 Attaboy – “Now led day to day by bar manager Haley Traub, the outfit produces perfectly balanced variations of Prohibition-era cocktails in a warm, NYC boxcar room.”

Ranked #33 The Dead Rabbit – “The NYC institution almost singlehandedly changed perceptions around the limits of an Irish pub…”

Ranked #41 Maison Premiere – “Maison Premiere offers an immersive trip into New Orleans’ gilded age with a distinctly New York twist.”

Ranked #43 Angel’s Share – “Transplanted from the original spot’s walls, a mural featuring a cherub-studded cloudscape keeps watch over the 17-seat bartop.”

Ranked #44 Milady’s – “The upbeat cocktail list spans the full gamut, starting with the Milady’s Martini, available in either ‘full figured’ or ‘cheeky size…’”
