If you ever got the urge to ape the Droog style from A Clockwork Orange, Abaya would be the place to hold court. With its modern decor and ambient downtempo tunes, the space has the feel of an exclusive SoHo haunt. You'll want to wander around and touch everything—a cascading red wall in front, puffy white vinyl tiles in back and dividing screens full of holes. Ten-dollar cocktails, in this area, are highly avoidable. So bring your out-of-town friends here to show them you know where the hip places are; then get them properly drunk at the dive down the street.


To feel appropriately groovy, order Abaya's specialty cocktail, the Tang 2001, made with an assortment of liquors and everyone's favorite Kool-Aid substitute.
