WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
It’s upscale casual. We’d go with something sophisticated, like a swinging little cocktail dress and chic low-key heels.
GO HERE WITH
A date; girlfriends; clients or colleagues
A sophisticated mix of industry insiders and starlets on their best behavior. Because of the relaxed door policy, there’s also a fair number of non-famous (though still smart) guests.
WHY WE LIKE IT
We love how the grown-up look and the crowd manage to keep a funky, modern edge. It’s sleek and sophisticated but not stuffy.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Sky-high cocktail prices.
GOOD TO KNOW
Happy hour runs 5:00pm-7:00pm daily. If you need a helping hand with the perplexing name, ADCB stands for “Asia de Cuba Bar.”
