Since opening in 2002, the Black Door has built a quiet reputation as a stylish but low-key hangout for a crowd that doesn't need a velvet rope to affirm its social standing. Tucked into a dimly lit, out-of-the-way Chelsea block, the unmarked black awning is easy to miss. Keep a sharp eye out, though, and you'll be rewarded with a brasserie-inspired vibe that feels very grown-up without being pretentious or stiff. Fans suspended from the high tin ceiling spin lazily overhead, while lambent white wall sconces and votives set on every surface cast a flattering glow across the glossy dark wood wainscoting. A drinks menu written across two large mirrors behind the bar point towards the sophisticated predilections of the cocktailing crowd. While there's no beer on tap, the attitude-free bartenders pour 15 wines by the glass and more than 15 bottled beers.
