M Bar -
This small modern lounge feels like home to Manhattan hipsters. M Bar is located in a quiet part of nolita and is so unassuming you may miss it. The frosted dark windows hide the party inside from the passing public and its door is shadowed by a looming scaffold. Once inside you’ll find a melting pot of all New York types. There may be some uptown suits still partying since happy hour, scruffy t-shirt Williamsburg kids, a couple homeboys, pretty girls, and one dancing weirdo in the corner. The leather sofa is along the entire back wall with low metal tables and votive candles. You can watch vintage porn on the flat screen TV while listening to deep house either on the main floor or in the basement. The atmosphere is very cool and inviting, yet this isn’t a singles mingle. Come with a date or a group of friends. The drinks are reasonably priced with specials every night.
