You really can get a good cocktail a mere two blocks away from Joshua Tree. You just need to find Middle Branch first. It’s tucked away within a two-story townhouse and you have to enter in at garden level. Come after midnight or be prepared to wait for a seat upstairs. Go for “bartender’s choice.”
More spots in GramercySee more
Upland used to be one of our favorite spots in the city, but now it’s mostly just a useful place to have a nice, somewhat boring meal in Flatiron.
Gramercy Tavern is an incredible restaurant. But you already know that. The bar is the move you want to make here, and you want to make it often.
We wish there was a Daily Provisions on every corner, so that we would never be far from their excellent breakfast and lunch.

The NoMad Bar
Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.
The Clocktower in the Edition Hotel is a Flatiron facsimile of a popular restaurant in London. And it works here just as well as it works over there.
The Shakespeare @ The William
If you’re looking for an English pub in Midtown, The Shakespeare is quite possibly the nicest. Stop by for happy hour.
