I was in the neighborhood after a late dinner and realized how close this spot was and I thought I would give it a shot. The phone was being a bit weird and it took us a few tries to get them to open the door. We were told the wait was "only" 45 minutes long. The wait took a while but I knew it would be worse on any normal day. So finally we were in! We got a seat at the bar and I was a little disappointed by the ambience. It's a very classic bar.
No frills. I was a bit excited since the door had the cool "phone booth" gimmick but no big deal. Both drinks were decent but nothing all that memorable. I think I preferred the mezcal mule just a bit. I'm not the biggest fan of mezcal but the other components of the drink kept it refreshing and didn't let the smokiness overtake the cocktail. Overall, the experience was just alright. It's a solid bar but the atmosphere and drinks weren't Please all the hassle of trying to get a seat.
There's quite a few other artisanal cocktail bars I'd rather visit. I wouldn't be opposed to coming back if there was only a 30 minute wait but I wouldn't make this a special trip. Came here last night with no reservations but heard it's super popular and nice. First, you have to go INTO Crif's dogs and walk in halfway until you see the telephone booth on the left. Only one person can enter. Then you have to pick up the phone Please dial something using a rotary phone. This poses a problem since most people aren't that old to know how to dial a rotary phone!
There's also 2 sets of instructions on the wall which is super confusing. They told us the wait was going to be 2. That's on me, NYC just opened back up and everywhere and anywhere needs a reservation weeks advanced these days.
So we decided to head out to other places to drink and put our names on the waitlist. We had ordered another round at the bar when we got the notification that our table is ready. It took us awhile to get back but they were able to sit us anyways, which is super lucky. Now the real review. First, this place is pretty cool.
It's cozy with a nice selection of drinks. Honestly, if you have a small group of friends and tired of the same old bar scenes in NYC, then this is a nice change of place. Here comes the bad part. Our waiter was completely rude and condescending the whole time. He didn't seem happy to be working there at all.
He was polite when he wanted to be, but treated us poorly the entire time. Second, the drinks can make or break a place, and although the selections were nice and unique, they weren't worth the high price tag. My friend ordered a green light and it was super Please, barely any alcohol in it.
How did we know? Because our other friend ordered one as well and we all got to taste it. When we told the waiter to add a shot, he told us that he would charge us for it. My same friend also ordered a beer that came in a can. The waiter offered to bring more ice. How about you refrigerate your beers? And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.
His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor his pleasure in the legs of a man, but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. Finally, then, brothers, we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more. For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and trueand try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me. By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God.
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
Not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.
How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation. Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe. Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings. For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
I know, my God, that you test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. Questions are currently answered in about 36 minutes. Ask a Question. Please Find Attached The Revised?

Retrieved 22 July This place should be called please don't bother. I get it, it's an "exclusive" speakeasy that got famous for having this gimmick of getting in through a fake telephone booth. Well first off the phone line seemed to be disconnected because I was in there following the instructions for a good 10 minutes before anyone came to the door.
At this point a line had formed. The hostess let me know she would be right with me as she let out a group of at least 7. When I peaked inside I saw it was not that full. I asked how long the wait would be for Please and she said over 2 hours without reservation and did not take my number, she just closed the door on me, which was extremely rude. The party behind me who did not have a reservation then went up and did the whole fake phone call situation and asked how much for a party of 7 and to my surprise were told there was no wait and was let in.
This place definitely picks and chooses who gets to go inside. Based on what I'm not sure, but it's wrong. If you're thinking of coming to please don't tell, It's my recommendation that you please don't.
Really love the inconspicuous and rather hidden entrance to this speakeasy. There's a phone booth inside Crif's dogs and you pick up the receiver and press a button and wait for someone to pick up and open the door for you to put your name down. Once inside, it has a pretty laidback and nice speakeasy ambience. The kitchen had closed by the time we got there so we didn't get to try the food but they have a pretty wide variety of drinks that they offer. The cocktail I recommend is the Paddington; I enjoyed it a lot.
We took our "new to NYC" friend here a couple of months ago, and got in with very little issue on a Fri night via a 10pm Resy reservation and a bit of patience.
Instead, I will say that the novelty of dialing a silent rotary phone gets old real fast, so take advantage of the Resy system while turnout is still low during pandemic times, and book your spot beforehand. I miss the old British-style red phone booth Anyway, the interior is dark and sophisticated, akin to the original Raines Law Room and many other speakeasies.
We got a variety of drinks whose names I forget, and they were all complex and tasty. However, if you're really into mixology like I am and want your bartender to create something off-menu, make sure you specify that clearly.
You Please go on and on about what you like, and he'll just give you something from the menu. Tell him clearly you want him to make something from scratch. I gave mine a Chop't-style list that included cardamom, whiskey, elderflower, and lemon. He was puzzled for a bit, then finally concocted something--and it was excellent. They only accept reservations at 3pm when you give them a call. I've tried this multiple times but I was always met with endless ringing and after 15 minutes or so someone picks up and let's me know that they're all booked up for the day.
I finally had my chance to sneak a peak on a Sunday night around 11pm. I was in the neighborhood after a late dinner and realized how close this spot was and I thought I would give it a shot. The phone was being a bit weird and it took us a few tries to get them to open the door. We were told the wait was "only" 45 minutes long. The wait took a while but I knew it would be worse on any normal day. So finally we were in! We got a seat at the bar and I was a little disappointed by the ambience.
It's a very classic bar. No frills. I was a bit excited since the door had the cool "phone booth" gimmick but no big deal. Both drinks were decent but nothing all that memorable. I think I preferred the mezcal mule just a bit.
I'm not the biggest fan of mezcal but the other components of the drink kept it refreshing and didn't let the smokiness overtake the cocktail. Overall, the experience was just alright. It's a solid bar but the atmosphere and drinks weren't worth all the hassle of trying to get a seat.
