Bar Goto

Lower East Side245 Eldridge Street, New York, NY 10002

If your party calls for sexy lighting, sublime drinks, and elevated Japanese bar snacks, then Bar Goto is the spot for you. Despite being located in the heart of downtown Manhattan, the moment you step through its doors, you'll feel transported to a sophisticated Tokyo cocktail haven. The vibe is upscale yet comforting; order a hojicha old fashioned (cognac, aged rum, Kyoto roasted green tea, chocolate bitters) alongside chicken wings slathered in spicy miso sauce and kombu celery. This acclaimed Lower East Side izakaya is the next best thing to a group trip to Japan.
