Ja works overtime to create an aura of cool, and compared to most of its neighborhood competition, it succeeds. But there's something off about the place. Sleek, modern chandeliers hang alongside ill chosen swathes of fabric intended to add color; attractive banquettes look out onto the street—through cheap-looking gauze curtains. In a smaller city or college town, Ja would be the illest thing going, thanks to a wide selection of bar food and specialty cocktails with names like the Coppertone Tan, the Red Ferrari and the Tennessee Valentine. DJs work the turntables most nights of the week, but management has nevertheless posted the ubiquitous "No Dancing Please" sign that graces Giuliani-fearing watering holes everywhere.
