The Up & Up, New York City

4.5
The Up & Up is a craft cocktail bar in Manhattan's Greenwich Village. Follow the illuminated arrow pointing down the stairs leading from MacDougal Street into a historic space, once home to the Gaslight Cafe, the birthplace of the Beat Generation and venue for some of the most storied musical acts. Here, nestled among the William Morris wallpaper, marble, brass, and wood, you will find a new kind of neighborhood cocktail bar. One where hospitality and skill work in concert. Guided by the mantra, high-end, low-key, the Up & Up is the perfect neighborhood cocktail den.

  • Shame the barman was totally rude and cold. The short white guy with the beard. Maybe he hates his job. But just get rid of him !!!  more »

  • Chill vibe, friendly staff. It's not cheap but you should expect to pay for quality. They also have a cool rule where they don't allow standing around near the bar. If there isn't room to seat you, they have a waiting list. Pretty classy in my opinion. They also have a max party size of 6, just to warn you.
  • Service was attentive & certainly well-informed. Cocktail menu is quite creative. Beware that cocktails that are served on the rocks is more like one large rock practically the size of a baseball which takes up most of the room in your glass. This never thrills me. Nevertheless, we all enjoyed our cocktails. Very dark interior, arts and crafts wallpaper, spars minimalism. Immaculate restroom.
