Maybe you're in the mood for shopping, but a cash-strapped friend would rather sit down to an inexpensive drink. The creators of the Hanger want people to do both in one place. At this cozy East Village spot (formerly Plant Bar), a handful of reasonably priced vintage dresses hang in the front window (and out of spills way), while a selection of hats—including some for men—sit atop an antique cabinet in back. The decor—flowered wallpaper, flickering candlelight, and wooden tables and chairs arranged in intimate corners—makes this the perfect place for a low-key date or a quiet start to a more raucous evening on the town.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
