This Lower East Side spot originally housed Milk & Honey. When that bar closed, Attaboy opened in the same space, run by two of its former bartenders, Sam Ross and Michael McIlroy. Reservations are no longer required for the handful of seats, but this is still the ideal place to enjoy speakeasy-style hospitality and well-made drinks.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: The Penicillin (whiskey, honey-ginger syrup, lemon) was created here during the Milk & Honey days.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: To find the otherwise unmarked space, look for the door that reads “Tailors M&H Alterations” (M&H is a nod to Milk & Honey, of course).
