While tourists may hit New York City’s Chelsea Market to ogle grass-fed marrow bones and pick up bottarga, natives know the really good stuff is underground. The Tippler, a speakeasy bar, is a century-old legend operating beneath the thoroughfare. Specializing in expertly selected wines, craft beers and simple, innovative cocktails featuring freshly juiced fruits and vegetables, The Tippler is a not-to-be-missed spot for mixology fans. 

The citrus-spiked Derek Smalls cocktail pairs vodka and cucumber with bitter, refreshing grapefruit and just may make you forget you’re in a relatively dark underground drinking establishment.
