What the community has to say about Employees Only

Information about this business (5)

With the "physic" sign in bright neon on the window of the storefront, at first it will seem like you're going to have your fortune read, but head inside and find a classic speakeasy-style bar. Employees Only is a highlight of the space: it includes a steel-grill fireplace and is topped with brass. You'll find some creative options on the cocktail menu, including vermouth with Herbes de...

Employees Only Restaurant Review

Established by former employees of New York restaurants like Lucky Strike, Pravda, Tavern on the Green and Schiller's Liquor Bar, Employees Only is a cozy communal-owned eatery-bar. An Art Deco flavor emanates from wood paneling with long, narrow vertical backlights and rounded walls. Because many of the employees-owners have Central and Eastern European backgrounds, the menu draws from some...

Weithin bekannt ist das Emloyees Only - wobei hier jeder hindarf, nicht nur Angestellte der Bar. Zu finden ist die Bar recht einfach, wenn man weiß, dass New Yorker Bars, die toll sein wollen,...

Lower in meat packing district, this place in the Center of it all, with bleeker pretty close . But EO as it says has its own crowd. Fun, warm but also food conscious. The cocktails were nothing but amazing. It's been a long time since we had something interesting and rightly enough it was on the menu.

Awesome little spot. Has a speakeasy feel. Great food. Amazing craft cocktails. Will definitely make it a point to come back when next I'm in NYC.

One of my favorite bars in New York , packed every night , great crowd and amazing cocktails . Hard to get in sometimes but if you start with dinner ( food is good !) and then move to the bar then you are covered for the entire night !

THE BEST pisco sour in the city. Hands down (and I try pisco sours everywhere I go)

Business description (5)

Employees Only can be found at Hudson St 510. The following is offered: Restaurants: International. The entry is present with us since Sep 8, 2010 and was last updated on Nov 12, 2013. In New York there are 25 other Restaurants: International . An overview can be found here.

Employees Only is located at 510 Hudson @W 10th St, New York, NY. This location is in the Chelsea neighborhood. This business specializes in Cafes.

The atmosphere at Employees Only was created to evoke the frivolous spirit of the 1920's and 30's. During Prohibition, patrons of speakeasies raised their glasses in defiance of the ban on alcohol. While there are many criminal aspects during this period that are not glorified, America has romanticized the roaring 20's as one of our first cultural revolutions. It was behind these closed doors...

Available for pre-theatre, dinner, and late night dining.

Tips about this business (8) view all

The Extras: Drop by for brunch between 11am and 4pm on weekends.

On the Menu: The list of wines by the glass include a local choice: a rose from the Wolffer Estate in the Hamptons. Whites and reds by the bottle are also available, most between $40 and $50 a bottle.

What to Drink: The smooth Pimm's Cup, made with Cointreau, fresh lime and ginger soda, has just the right touches of cucumber and mint. To awaken the taste buds, try the bright Ginger Smash, a muddle of ginger root and cranberries, mixed with gin and apple liqueur.

Where to Sit: In the summer months, the backyard garden opens for an alfresco experience.
