Review: The Tippler is a speakeasy-type, underground watering hole in the old Nabisco factory underneath Chelsea Market.  It’s a break from your standard meatpacking club, though on weekends it does seem to get some of the the nightclub rejects who can sometimes ruin what could be a great scene.  The awesome cocktail list of intricate drinks, along with some good craft beers make it worth the walk over to meatpacking though.  The Tippler has a cavernous/romantic vibe, but it can get a little loud and hard to hear your companion later on in the night.  There is a line out front at times with a wait, so try and get there early to beat the rush.  All in all, it’s a fun and different spot to try if you enjoy trying out new specialty cocktails, and as long as you can snag a table in one of the dark/quieter corners, it can be a great spot to bring a date.
