New York Need to Know: A guide to the districts

New York, New York, or so the ditty goes from old Frank, yet visitors still flock to Manhattan as if it’s the only part of the city.

America is the spiritual home of the cocktail, and nowhere does them better than the Big Apple. After all, not every city gets a drink named after each of their boroughs, and there’s good reason for that. In New York, old world class meshes with new world inventiveness, producing some of the finest drinking establishments on earth. It’s no surprise that Sinatra spent his evenings boozing around the city that never sleeps, and libation wise things have only gotten better since then. There isn’t much that can beat savouring a Manhattan whilst overlooking that famous skyline (although those with a sweet tooth might be more partial to sipping on a Bronx).
