Whereas other sleek lounges reek of Polo Sport, White Rabbit keeps things cool and minimalist, with works by downtown artists on display behind the bar. This kind of attention to detail is characteristic of owner Jim Chu, who opened White Rabbit out of a desire to give his childhood neighborhood a classy but comfortable nightspot with treats inspired by the area’s diverse heritage. He succeeds admirably with signature Latin and Asian-inspired cocktails: floral-tasting lychee martinis and a coconut-rum and mango cocktail called the Paradise lives up to its name. Though the room is insistently white, the crowd is colorful, ranging from corporate types to NYU-aged kids relaxing after a show at the Sunshine next door. DJs sometimes spin, but there isn't much dancing: The crowd seems mostly content to sit back and breathe in the atmosphere.

Trademark Drink

Paradise Martini (coconut rum, mango puree, lime juice)
