Owners Kyky Conille and Unik Ernest have created a luxurious bi-level lounge where brown leather banquettes, dramatic skylights and large photos of Haitian street life evoke a gentlemen’s club in the tropics. The DJ favors early-’90s hits like “The Humpty Dance.” Be warned: Getting in ain’t always easy, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
