La Esquina in NYC. The perfect hidden bar in Soho, New York. You would easily walk past it during the day, and probably also by night, since the outside looks like a ‘take away’ food shop. But once you walk in and you see the bouncer at the door in the middle of the place, you know there is more to be seen;). A dark, cool and fun cocktail bar with bites downstairs!
When in London, go to Joyeux Bordel, an intimate cocktail bar located behind a slightly inconspicuous black door in Shoreditch.
*fun fact: I once visited this bar, the bartender was preparing my drink and I had the idea that I had seen this exact scenario before. So I asked him if he had worked in another bar before and he said that he indeed had. So a similar bar I visited in Paris popped up in my mind, and I took a wild guess: “In Paris, in ‘The Fish Club’?”, he was amazed and confirmed it! So I was actually served by the same guy in two different cities by coincidence?! Sickkkkkkkkk:)
