Any other bars? I am here and I have been to all ones mentioned above except for 21. Let me know please. I am on my way to 21. I love New York even when it is pouring rain, hahahaha.

Be absolutely sure to check out Elettaria in the West Village.

Looking forward to raising a glass, Rob. Let us know when you are available to consume some adult beverages during your visit.

I finally checked out Pegu Club on W Houston, great drinks, especially the 'Gin Gin' ginger cocktail, one of my new favorites. vaguely polynesian decor as well.

Pegu is an excellent place. If you catch them on a less busy night and get a seat at the bar (good luck), you can usually get them to make several tiki drinks that are not on the menu, depending on the bartender, including mai tais, zombies, singapore slings, etc. The bartenders are usually happy to share whatever personal cocktail experiments they have been working only lately too, which can be interesting.

The decor is cool, I believe they were going for the feel of a 1900-ish british asian-colonial club (specifically Burma I think). Nice dark feel to it.

I am partial to the "Gin Gin cocktail" myself, and their deviled eggs with the smoked fish on top!

Pegu Club is going to get several visits out of me. I've made their signature drink quite a few times and it's a personal fav. To hear that they will also mix up tiki drinks makes them even more of a "must visit".

I walked by the Monkey Bar yesterday. It looks like it's closed down!
