My life. Your resource.











Okay, so that was a little corny.  It’s been ages since I’ve entered a post, but after coming back from “My Little Secret,” a speakeasy that recently opened in Manhattan’s Little Italy, I found the inspiration to write again.

Located on 149 Mulberry Street, you won’t find this place if you are looking for a sign that reads “My Little Secret ” because it’s a speakeasy.   Rather, you need to look for a big burly bouncer standing by a red velvet rope that opens to a staircase leading to a basement entrance.  There is no secret knock, or code to get in.   Once you’re inside, you will find yourself in a bar with low ceilings and the ambiance of a wine cellar noted by the wooden barrels on the wall.

They have a unique cocktail menu with each drink costing $13.  Wine and beer is also available.  Try the “Smoking Secret Cocktail” which consists of Mekhong, Domaine de Canton, honey, Fee Brothers and Angostura Bittters.  I liked this drink because it didn’t have the usual syrupy sweetness that I find when I drink Cosmos and Martinis.

The waitstaff was friendly and very accommodating.  They even shared with us an additional secret to the venue, but I won’t give it away, you have to speak to Vinnie or Daniela.
