Delicious drinks are the draw at this mod South East Asian–themed bar and lounge, particularly during the extended happy hour (select cocktails cost $4 from 5–10pm everyday). Regulars gather in the long, tangerine-hued room to have intimate conversations and sip a Bamboo (house-made cucumber infused vodka, jasmine tea and pineapple juice) or the Saigon Belini (raspberry infused sake, champagne and fresh passion puree). Stop by midweek to avoid the less-than-chic clientele that rolls in come Friday.
