Why locals love it

With its hidden entrance on the second floor of Village Yokocho, a go-to Japanese restaurant in East Village, getting to Angel's Share feels like an adventure - and not in a kitschy way. While the ultra-secretive speakeasy is no longer illegal (Prohibition ended in 1933), large groups are strictly forbidden at this tucked away bar.

Why you should visit it

Standing room is forbidden, as are groups larger than four, and for good reason - Angel's Share is a tiny bar. That also means you won't have to elbow your way through the crowd. Grab one of the tiny tables in the large windows overlooking Stuyvesant Street, one of the oldest in the borough of Manhattan.

Special tip

Angel's Share is tiny, so it fills up quickly. For a guaranteed seat, head here around midnight.
