Lantern's Keep

An Innovator Among NYC Cocktail Bars

In the 1920s, when the temperance movement took over the United States, bartenders fled the country to more permissive European destinations. These expatriates brought their cocktail concepts to legendary haunts like the Savoy, creating a distinct culture thousands of miles from home.

Lantern’s Keep is devoted to the artful enjoyment of cocktails, as created by these turn-of-the-century aficionados. A hidden gem tucked behind the refined lobby of the Iroquois, it is not a lobby lounge or a mere NYC cocktail bar – it is a unique entity in its own right, serving a carefully selected slate of creative, inspired drinks in an intimate, exclusive environment. Each bartender brings their personal style behind to cater to even the most experienced cocktail experts.
