Tantra Lounge in Astoria has an eclectic aesthetic. The decor seems largely inspired by the Middle East, with lanterns lighting up cozy nooks draped in brightly hued silks, although a few statues of traditional Hindu gods pop up here and there. The music selection is just as varied and vibrant. On any given night, you might hear salsa, R&B, top 40 hits and reggae. Order a drink at the bar, or purchase VIP bottle service so your crew can claim one of the intimate tables as your own. Either way, you can still take a few puffs of the flavored hookah. And since they offer special birthday packages and occasional themed events, Tantra Lounge has you covered when it comes to special events, too.
