NileGuide Expert Says:
At Little Branch, the best seat in the house might be standing at the bar, watching the bartender mix any one of a variety of complex cocktails.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Little Branch doesn't accept credit cards. From Sunday to Thursday, catch live jazz performances--ranging from standards to Brazilian--around 10pm.
This basement-level bar carries on the high standard of cocktail-making that made owner Sasha Petraske's reservations-only flagship bar Milk & Honey famous, but maintains an open-door policy for its clientele of West Village locals and visitors. Just choose your favorite liquor--tequila, rum, vodka, rye, bourbon--and the expert bartenders will make you any one of a list of custom-mixed libations for your sipping pleasure.
