Hidden away in China Town is this little speakeasy gem of a bar. While finding it might be a bit of challenge (look for the brown door and if there's no bouncer outside just pull it open yourself) after you go inside you get transported to another era.

I stood in Chinatown for 20 minutes, staring at my phone screen and alternating between Yelp, City mapper and Google Maps, and STILL I couldn't figure out where this place was. Finally, FINALLY it occurred to me to check the photos and try and search for the door instead of the sign. Phew.
