5 great places for artisanal cocktails in New York

1) Holiday Cocktail Lounge

For nearly 100 years, this space attracted notables with personality (Madonna, Sinatra, Keith Richards, Iggy Pop, Allen Ginsburg, Trotsky). The recent modern-with-kitsch makeover retains a vintage feel. Cocktails are cultivated by brothers Michael and Danny Neff, who are committed to honoring its gritty, celebrity-studded past.
