Antik, the semi-private lounge in the old Marion’s Marquee space, is a serviceable after-spot for those who want to keep drinking in a retro setting during the nights when the Bowery Hotel’s lobby bar closes at 2am. (Of course it’s not as elaborate or elegant, which might be why the lighting is so dim.) The cocktails are on the syrupy side, but we enjoyed the Cowboy, a jalepeno-infused margarita. Bottle service isn't a must, but reservations are recommended since there are only eight tables. The best thing about the place: If the doorman turns you away, there’s a much less self-conscious pub in King's Cross downstairs (from the same owners as Antik) and the perfect martini at Marion’s next door.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
