Slip into the underground and dive into unknown pleasures. Dimly lit and velvet-laced, our intimate cocktail lounge is a sultry and seductive trip back to the heyday of the clandestine, cavern-like settings of East Village’s 1990s lounge scene. But the historical references go back even further to the 19th century, with a custom wallcovering depicting the neighborhood’s pastoral past. Wood-clad, barrel-vaulted ceilings are reminiscent of a hidden underground chamber where whiskey might have been stored in the bootlegger era. Cush banquettes, locally crafted vintage chandeliers, jewel-toned velvet sofas, a glowing copper DJ stand, and a mirrored-copper bar illuminated by an overhead bank of backlit whiskey bottles bring the seductive space to life. Under psychedelic lighting and in the midst of our scantily clad servers, a night at Little Sister is one you won’t soon forget.
