This tiny Lower East Side lounge is the love child of the owners of Gaslight in the Meatpacking District and Sapphire Lounge next door. The beautiful yellow and red stained glass lanterns that hang below a custom-made arched, pine-ribbed ceiling are meant to evoke a monastery from the Middle Ages, but the Gothic theme is subtle enough to escape the notice of the cocktail swilling locals and the wayward uptowners who relax on cozy banquettes made from worn bomber-jacket-like leather. Others cozy up to a bar that’s beautifully topped with cobblestones from a New York street. D.J.'s spinning an eclectic mix of tunes on various nights can whip the crowd into a head-bobbing frenzy, tempting some females to use the cobblestones on the bar for what they were originally intended.Trademark Drink
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
