245 Eldrigde St | Lower East Side | $$$
Daily except Monday, from 5pm to 12midnight (2am on Friday and Saturday)
This is a great little find in the Lower East Side with, what the magazine Bon Appétit describes, the sexiest lighting in Manhattan. Amber hues illuminate the cozy bar that serves creative cocktails and very good snack food. Come early to snug a seat at the bar as things get crowded and clubbier later in the evening.
