Manhattan – East Village
15 First Ave between 1st and 2nd Sts
Manhattan, NY 10003
In 2002, the owners turned a neighborhood spot into a comfortable lounge, complete with a DJ booth in the back and Chimay at the bar. Furniture is bolted to the floor and a sign reads no dancing --but that didn't stop a lively group from doing the Watusi next to their barstools. And even though La Linea instituted a dress code (no ball caps, hoodies, sports jerseys or tank tops), the crowd was not necessarily up to par on that score, either.
