Tucked below Abe & Arthur's in the former Lotus space, SL is to the sceney meatpacking restaurant what Tenjune is to STK: a perfect rollover for late-night diners and drinkers whose mission is to party. Long lines, velvet ropes, and pounding house and hip-hop lure clubbers, who are greeted on the inside by eerie X-ray slides of skulls on the walls. With well-heeled weekend crowds vying to get in to the table-heavy club, SL proves that bottle service is indeed alive and well.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
