Hidden among the traditional ethnic joints littering Forest Hill’s main bar strip is this midtown-striving lounge, where LIRR commuters can order a blueberry martini or pitcher of white sangria on a pit stop to the city. The décor is inexplicably hodgepodge—the dark, red-walled space is dotted with paintings of an imagined Italian countryside (a holdover from the bar’s days as a teahouse) and a shelf lined with a wooden fish creature, a Chinese dragon statue, and beach-house decorations. Still, it’s the only bar in the area where you can groove to Lil Wayne, and the dim, back room, stocked with beaded pillows and plush, animal-print-covered couches, is perfect for first dates.
