The Garret is a speakeasy in the West Village. It’s one of those properly hidden spots, that would be almost impossible to just stumble across.
From the outside, you see a building with a five guys, and possibly an apartment above if you’re looking closely. If you walk into the Five Guys however, all the way to the back and towards the counter, and then turn left, you will find a set of stairs.
If you follow these stairs you will find the coziest hidden bar ever.
It is not huge, so I don’t recommend going at super busy times. I have been at 6pm after day drinking, and at 10pm before a night out, and it was much more enjoyable at 6pm.
The cocktails are great, and prices are average for the West Village (about $14).
