About Meaghan Dorman
Dorman is the bar director of The Bennett, Raines Law Room, and Dear Irving in New York City. She is the winner of the 2011 Metropolitan Opera Cocktail Competition, a national finalist in the 2012 Viva Sangrita Competition, the 2013 International G’Vine Gin Connoisseur Program, and was named Imbibe Magazine's 2016 Bartender of the Year.
The Bennett is designed to have the atmosphere and cocktail expertise of the world's best bars with the approachability of a neighborhood bar. We focus on cocktails, with an array of classics and creative house-made drinks, that change several times per year. The bar menu is built around plates to share, to keep up with the flow of sharing drinks with friends and colleagues.
The Bennett Bloody Mary is excellent for shaking off the cobwebs. It's got a hint of roasted poblano mixed in the expected spice of horseradish and black pepper.

MEAGHAN DORMAN'S BOOZY TRIBECA GUIDE
Morning Wake Up
Laughing Man Coffee
Just like Hugh Jackman, I love the Flat White.
184 Duane Street, New York, NY 10013
Morning Hangover Breakfast
They do a great breakfast and brunch. There are plenty of healthy, light options to lessen the guilt of a big night, or a comforting egg sandwich to get you right.
135 West Broadway, New York, NY 10013
This a beautiful room and I love to have lunch at the bar. The ricotta is delicious to start and they have some great spritz cocktails which are perfect for afternoon drinking. If it's a full day off, I will follow up that cheese and spritz with a pasta and glass of red wine.
377 Greenwich Street, New York, NY 10013
Afternoon Outdoor Cocktails
This is a beautiful (seasonal) place. Enjoying the water views from a boat with cocktail in hand. That's pretty hard to beat!
Hudson River Park, Pier 25, New York, NY 10013
North End Grill
They have lovely outdoor seating and a nice view of the colors changing at sunset.

Early Evening Geeky Cocktails
I love our neighbors at Weather Up. I'm a fan of simple, classic drinks and the Negroni and Daiquiri here are top notch.
159 Duane Street, New York, NY 10013
At the Roxy Hotel, they pair inventive cocktails with the chance to see live jazz almost every night. It's a great spot for locals and visitors alike to do something different.
2 6th Avenue, New York, NY 10013
Dinner With Cocktails
This is, hands down, my favorite TriBeCa restaurant. The flavor in their dishes is just insane and the specials always catch my attention. They have tasty cocktails while still fitting with the Laotian DNA of the space.
157 Duane Street, New York, NY 10013
Off The Beaten Track Cocktails
This is tucked away in the back of the Smyth Hotel, but worth a stop for a sexy hotel bar vibe.
