Named for the French symbolist poète maudit Paul Verlaine (who imbibed copiously, cavorted with prostitutes and diddled fellow poète maudit Arthur Rimbaud), this dimly lit Lower East Side lounge is markedly absent of decadence and depravity. With high ceilings and a sleek, minimalist décor of tastefully lined black banquettes and petite candles, Verlaine is perfect for a tête-à-tête. The room comes alive on most nights with a less ostentatious breed of LES hipster quaffing Vietnamese-themed cocktails exoticized with lychees, loquats and sake. A small plate and dinner menu is also available.
