Your New Favorite Bar

Notable nightlife openings.



Above Allen
190 Allen St., nr. Houston St.; 212-460-5300
Thompson LES's members-only terrace bar comes with a retractable roof, upholstery from Stephen Sprouse, and drinks and small plates from Shang, downstairs.

The Back Room at Café Select
108 W. Houston St., at Thompson St.; 212-505-2015
Serge Becker's latest spot now has its own quasi-secret backroom bar. The place is tiny, meaning celeb elbow-rubbing will be even more pronounced.

Bar 108
108 W. Houston St., at Thompson St.; 212-505-2015
The upscale sports bar is still working out all the details, but things are looking good for the future. Coming down the line is a gastropub menu and, as far as we know, the city's first-ever fantasy-football-draft war room (available for rent and fitting between fifteen to twenty dorks).

Bleecker Heights Tavern
296 Bleecker St., at. Seventh Ave.; 212-675-6157
A slim sports bar secreted above a Five Guys (find the stairs in the back of the burger shop, past the counter) with five flat screens, Delirium Tremens, and a tiny pool table. Crucial detail: burgers are delivered upstairs.

City Winery
155 Varick St., at Vandam St.; 212-608-0555
An ambitious wine institution from the Knitting Factory's Michael Dorf, the 21,000-square-foot space houses a winery, a wine bar, a Murray's Cheese bar, and a restaurant. And a performance space that's no slouch: Rufus Wainwright, Todd Rundgren, Cowboy Junkies, Philip Glass, and Marianne Faithful will all be dropping by in the near future.
