Lower East Manhattan

New York

It's not every day that you can frequent a hot dog stand with a hidden speakeasy in its walls but if you make a visit here, you'll find that Crif Dogs / PDT isn't just your typical place. Crif Dogs itself is a gourmet hot dog shop with a full menu of unique hot dog creations (we personally enjoyed the tsunami) and beer. You can walk in for quick and easy service. Admittedly, most folks don't come here for the hot dogs though as one of the city's best speakeasies sits hidden behind the telephone booth inside of Crif Dogs. To access it, you'll enter the phone booth in Crif Dogs, dial "1" and then wait for the hostess to greet you. If your party is able to be seated, you'll walk through the telephone booth and into the intimate speakeasy with some of the best drinks we've had around New York (reservations are HIGHLY recommended - we showed up without any, exactly when they opened at 5PM and there was a line out the door already. It was pure luck that we were able to get seated due to last minute cancellations).



Use the following must-try-recommendations to take your trip here from ordinary to extraordinary

    - Be Sure to Use The Phone Booth To Try & Gain Access to the Hidden Speakeasy
