Boasting two floors swathed in red velvet and candlelight, plus pomegranate-colored walls, Sutra attracts a steady flow of downtown scenesters and celebs (both Rosario Dawson and Drea de Matteo have been spotted lounging here). Candles line the walls; you'll either dig the mood lighting or question the possible fire-code violation.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
