f you weren’t in the know (you’re welcome), you’d have no idea Drink existed. Hidden below ground level on a narrow street with barely any signage, this is a perfect place to find a classic cocktail—a whisky smash, a Pegu, or a Bee’s Knees, for instance—impeccably mixed by bartenders who take obvious pride in their craft. Mint is mashed, limes freshly squeezed, and ice crushed right in front of you. The walls are bare and there is little in the way of decoration (though don’t miss the bug collection on your way out), but that’s not what you’re here for, is it? Tuder

Popularized by Rudyard Kipling, a Pegu is a cocktail invented at the Pegu Club in Burma and made of gin, orange liqueur, lime juice, and Angostura bitters.
