Leather booths, polished hardwood floors and chandeliers are enough to remind you that the joint's supposed to be swanky, though nothing reaches too far over the top. The same goes for the crowd: Locals, almost-thirtysomethings and traveling lounge lizards chill together, hoping to parlay the sexual tension into some way to relieve it. Take a seat at the wide bar, choose one of the twelve beers on draught and feel the Jetsons-like rounded bar stools cradle your heiney into a (hopefully) flattering position. Events vary each night: different nights bring hip-hop, house, classics and everything else you'd expect to hear at a cute East Village bar. —Heather Marie Graham
