Charlie was great as always
DialAFlight did an excellent job and I have recommended your service to my family and friends
Karl has been fantastic - he made the whole process seamless
Nick was helpful and answered any questions politely
With all that’s going on in the world I would like to thank you all for your help in getting it all sorted in the end. A special thank you to Barney Morris for all his help
Perfect trip to New York.
Kennedy was amazing at checking I had everything in place before my trip. Outstanding customer service.
Absolutely amazing service from all the people I spoke to. Special thanks to Shane who was really understanding and empathetic when I had to call the emergency number to rebook my flights. Always a pleasure using DialAFlight and the app is very useful
Thank you, Raphael!
Oli in the London office was extremely helpful. Without his help and support I do not think we would have got to the US and back again. Brilliant customer service.
Reid was fantastic from booking to day of travel.
Sally is a star!
Great customer service and follow up.
Zoe and colleagues are really helpful and responsive and we found their professional attitude and speedy replies very reassuring in these anxious and uncertain times. The whole trip went very smoothly and we are very pleased with the service
As always, a thoroughly excellent service.
Excellent as always
Everyone at DialAFlight has been incredibly helpful with all the requirements for travel.
Always contactable. Regular communication and updates. Flexible. Easy to deal with.
William is a brilliant ambassador and we will always endeavour to go with him
Tyler and his team are excellent
Thanks particularly to Zak who was so very helpful - DialAFlight is by far the best travel agent
Keep up the good work
When I was uncertain I knew I could call and every time Andrew led me through the problem. Very grateful
Bruce and his team were extremely helpful and patient as I was quite apprehensive in going but so glad we did! Always kept well informed and always at the end of the phone for my never ending questions
Help, advice and being kept aware of all the many changes as they happened made the trip less stressful than it might have been
British Airways are useless and any help with retrieving our lost baggage would be appreciated, but Thomas at DialAFlight has been brilliant and gone out of his way to ensure that we had a good holiday.
Noah was very helpful throughout my whole journey to the US. Always kept me updated with any changes due to the covid situation. I cannot thank him enough. Great service as always
It’s very reassuring with all the uncertainties at present that DialAFlight are able to offer a fully flexible service
Amelia was first class and was supported very well by Gavin and Bruce.
Cocktails are a big deal in New York, where scores of the world's best bartenders aim to recreate a classic Sex In The City or Mad Men vibe.
But which bar is best?
Old school cocktails
Walk through the original 'hidden' entrance to The Back Room on the Lower East Side and you're in one of two bars that stayed open throughout America's troubled prohibition era. Here cocktails are served in disguise in china tea cups while beer bottles are covered in paper bags, as they were in the 1920s. backroomnyc.com
If you want polished wood, a clubby, back-in-time vibe, a twist on the classic Manhattan recipe and some award-winning bartenders, try Employees Only. employeesonlynyc.com
Or head to the old home of cocktail king Paddy Ford at steak place Wollensky's Grill or nearby (and more pricey) Smith & Wollenskys. At the latter, you drink in a dining room that's been used as a set for films including American Psycho and The Devil Wears Prada. smithandwollenskynyc.com
Cocktails with a view
One of the new kids on the cocktail block is Manhatta, where lifts take up you up 60 floors for seasonal food, skyline views and a riff on the classic Manhattan called, not surprisingly, the Manhatta. manhattarestaurant.com
Or you can get in a New York frame of mind with city views, sunset jazz and a dessert menu at the bar at the Top of the Standard. standardhotels.com
While it sounds like a tourist trap, even locals admit you can't beat the views from the outdoor terrace of Bar 54 at the Hyatt on Times Square. hyatt.com
Cocktails for friends and family
A lot of New York bars cater for couples, where you choose between a spot at the bar or a table for two. If you're in a group, it's advisable to call first – often that's the only way six or more people will be allowed in. Or try bigger table places such as The Tippler below Chelsea market. Cocktails here include the Call An Uber. thetippler.com
Alternatively, head out to the converted warehouse that's now Porchlight where the owners are on a quest to find 'the next great American cocktail'. porchlightbar.com
Cocktails with experts
Try your hand at cocktail-making as you learn the history of the Manhattan, the Cosmopolitan and other New York favourites at a two-hour Iconic NYC Cocktails class at the cool Liquor Lab in Soho. liquorlaboratory.com
Cocktails with extras
If you think nothing says 'exotic cocktail bar' quite like a full-size crystal palm tree, head to the Gitano Jungle Room for New York mixes with Mexican twists. If you wait until summer, you can drink in the roof garden as well. grupogitano.com
Can't decide between whisky or a cool cocktail? Try local favourite Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog. Get a whiskey in the Irish-flavoured Tap Room bar or head up to The Parlour for serious mixology. deadrabbitnyc.com
Or, in true 'only in New York' spirit, join a 'cocktails with yoga' night on Mondays at CocoMat Soho with Deep Eddy Vodka. It's free, though donations are expected. Book a slot at eventbrite.com.
