Located at 54 West 39th Street, EVR is a Midtown clubby/lounge-y type spot. Past the long bar area, there’s an elevated DJ booth and a lounge area with low-lying seating, along with a small lounge area on the second floor. During our weeknight visit, the crowd appeared mostly as the after-work type; we could feel the scene changes significantly late nights and weekends. Overall, it’s an okay spot for after-work, but if Irish pubs are a dime-a-dozen in this part of Manhattan, then these upscale clubby/lounge-y type spots are becoming a quarter-a-dozen.
On April 7, 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act became law, allowing the manufacture and sale of beer that was up to 4% alcohol-by-volume. It wasn’t until December 5, 1933 that the full repeal of Prohibition was complete.
How will you celebrate Scottish pride today?
Located on the second floor of 58 East 34th Street, The Cash Bar is another speakeasy/cocktail type place. Fairly small and intimate, The Cash Bar feels like a good date place. As the name implies, the space has a ubiquitous cash theme, from the wall paper to the little pile of fake $100 bills in the middle of the room. It’s something a little different for the immediate surrounding neighborhood. Worth a visit next time you are nearby.
April 1 has arrived and that means that the enjoyable, warmer NYC pub crawling weather is just around the corner! (Let’s hope so, anyway).
