The Electric Room lurks deep beneath the Dream Downtown hotel, like a rock star’s forbidden bunker. The Rule-Britannia influenced lounge has a transported London vibe: wood-paneled walls, Banksy-inspired graffiti, and leather couches embossed with Old Glory and the Union Jack. The crowd is the seen-and-be-seen type, but the Electric Room’s conscious usage of rock and roll in its design and music selection容verything from '80s synth to Radiohead to The White Stripes葉emper the worst of the club cliches. The menu focuses on cocktail specials that feature a nice mix of booze, fresh garnishes, and fruity bits. There's even some comfort food, including a Kobe patty melt with caramelized onions, mushrooms, and American cheese and Amish chicken served with grilled vegetables and herb butter. The lounge, brought to you by the same team behind Rose Bar, can be a little tricky to find: either head down the loading ramp from 16th St. (look for some intense graffiti), or wend your way through the hotel: head past the desk, down the stairs, and around the bathrooms様ook for a neon lightning bolt to illuminate your path, and then party like a rock star.
