Models and celebs have been known to visit this bi-level, multimood lounge. Downstairs has more of a VIP feel: private tables surrounded by potted trees. Upstairs has a bar and banquettes with tables, as well as a DJ who pumps rock & roll, hip-hop and even some '80s pop. The surprise here is the reasonable tab for drinks (all under $10); on weekends, there's a cover charge ranging from $5 to $10.
