Do the tropics really smell like this? If you can get past the cherry-vanilla aromatherapy pungency hanging in the air, this Latin-themed lounge may provide a caliente-good time. Carnaval looks like a futuristic, Amazonian jungle lounge as the folks behind Mars 2112 might conceive it. The bar up front is where the heavy, heavy cruising happens, but head back to one of a handful of super-secluded red-velvet nooks and you’ll scarcely notice it. Just be warned: this Lower East Side establishment is not for the scruffy or tight-of-cash, but rather for a more economically empowered crew of leather blazer-clad males (new leather, not vintage) and’80s, fold-over-ankle-boot-wearing ladies who love them.
