Drink in the Old World atmosphere at this elegant subterranean drinking parlor where Victorian-inspired touches soothe the mood. Within this replica brownstone parlor room, the late 20-/30-something crowd converses over tables dotted with doilies, classic cocktails, and teacups filled with snack mix, while others congregate at the bar to choose between the fine boutique wines and draft beers poured out of golden taps. Crimson velvet wallpaper, lacy pillows, Persian rugs, and a fireplace provide all the necessary props for an evening of luxurious libation. A single sip from one of their champagne cocktails, and you’ll understand why so many couples adore coming here.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Go casual but embrace your inner-artist with a fitted lacey top and blazer, dark pants or leggings, fab boots, and a choice bangle or two.
GO HERE WITH
A girlfriend - for the pretty décor and fun drinks; a date - for the luxurious low-lit romance
A smattering of the smart young professionals and artsy types, be they Village locals or those in the neighborhood, along with romantic, doting dates.
WHY WE LIKE IT
In a space this pretty, happy hour is a no-brainer. And even though it’s in the heart of the Village (and in close proximity to NYU), the crowd is not of the beer-bonging, shot-slinging type.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
With all that upholstery and warm glow, the place can get a bit stuffy during warmer months.
GOOD TO KNOW
Their modern cocktails have developed something of a following (tip: the French Lavender is one of this bar’s most loved concoctions). Happy Hour runs from 4:00pm-8:00pm Sunday to Thursday, serving USD 7 martinis, cosmos, margaritas, and mulled wine: an absolute deal.
