Skip the velvet-rope scene and hit this laid-back lounge instead. The upstairs room, seductively lit through red glass tiles, serves beer and potent Cosmos to a largely African-American crowd. Catch a live music or comedy show during the week. On weekends, groove to deejayed house, hip-hop and reggae, or show off your moves in an old-school dance contest on Fridays at midnight.
