A bit awkwardly located, EvoLve is nonetheless a welcome oasis for guy-loving guys looking for a post-work happy hour in sterile, heterocentric Midtown East. The bowling alley-length bar leads toward a cigarette-friendly patio, and nightly parties keep things lively (if nothing else). The bartenders, God bless 'em, will flirt with you, keeping your ego safely buoyed.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
