New York: Hidden Doors & Stormy Weather @ Angel's Share

Whilst in New York, one of the things I had to do was go to a speakeasy. Thankfully our friends there were knowledgeable and listed several for us to try, including Angel's Share.

This is what a real speakeasy looks like. Angel's Share is hidden away inside a Village Yokocho around the NYU district.

After heading up the stairs to the Japanese restaurant and making a left, a wooden door separates you from the speakeasy.

It's so classy. I really enjoy it.

We each had the stormy weather ($14), which Jason said was the drink to get. In it was:  apple and cinnamon-infused rye whiskey, fresh lime juice, ginger flavoured wine, ground ginger, and ginger ale.
They even had a blurb about it in the menu. It's really cute: The fuji apple infused whiskey was conceived after many trials and experimentation. Served in a chilled bronze mug, we are proud to present this truly unique cocktail. This was a really interesting and delicious drink. It was pretty strong, but nicely balanced with the apple. The cinnamon part was a bit faint though.

I really enjoyed Angel's Share. I whined about going back for the rest of the week I was in New York, but unfortunately did not have the chance to. Definitely must go back when I'm back in New York.

For your reference, this is a not-so-real "speakeasy" near our apartment in Hell's Kitchen. I mean, it says "speakeasy" in neon lights.
