The work day is over and nothing better than relax and have a nice drink, but with so many choices in New York City it’s hard to choose where to go. NY Design Agenda is going to introduce you to the greatest bars spots in NY to have a nice time after work. Cheers!
Head to East Village, 8 Stuyvesant Street, then go to the 2nd floor, through the Japanese restaurant Village Yokocho and find an unmarked door. Then, like the Pevensie children emerging from the back of a wardrobe into Narnia, you’ll find yourself in a very different world. No standing, no groups of more than four and no shouting set the standard for this cool, Eastern-influenced lounge where the cocktail is held in the highest reverence.A speakeasy vibe blends with stylish décor that makes up for the rather limited space.. At at busy times you may have a wait to get seated, but it’s a classy destination if you’re out to impress a date with your sophistication and insider knowledge. In this tiny venue, cocktails are mixed with scientific precision by the two Japanese bartenders then served in perfectly chilled glasses.
The Lambs Club Bar
The Lambs Club Bar overlooks to the Lobby of The Chatwal Hotel as well as 44th Street through a wall of floor to ceiling French doors. With abundant natural light, the bar by day serves as a space for people to gather, have a meeting, pre matinee lunch or just to enjoy afternoon tea with friends. As nighttime approaches, the cocktails and award winning wine list take center stage. Hand cut ice, custom glassware and meticulously crafted beverages made with fresh pressed juices make this a Midtown haven for enjoying an expertly composed drink in style.
Up a flight of stairs in a second-floor garret overlooking West Houston Street, cocktail genius and mixology maven Audrey Saunders helms the majestic Pegu. It’s named for an actual British colonial club in Rangoon – and for the tart gin-based drink of that name is served there.In keeping with the colonial name, the room is done out on vaguely Asian lines, with light wood floors, bamboo blinds and low wood tables. Couples and groups recline on sumptuous brown velvet couches or fill the bar area to capacity.
