Lair New York City

The newest addition to the nightlife scene in New York City, Lair, located on uber-hip Lafayette Street, is a bar, lounge, restaurant and private event space all in one. Safari meets urban glamour at this nighttime haunt— the exposed brick, distressed wood, hand-painted ethnic art work and lavish throw pillows all comes together in Lair’s chicly rustic interior, accented by earth tones and glowing chandeliers. With plush lounge areas and low table top furniture, Lair is the ideal venue for all downtown trendsetters to have a pre-or-post drink and bite. Creating a space that is cozy yet sexy, managing partners, owners and high school friends, Michael Levin and Illarion Parmit, have set the space apart from the city’s usual nightlife scene with a deliciously colorful cocktail menu. Pick between a Mamma Mule Feel Good (Absolute vodka, cinnamon five spice syrup, apricot and ginger beer), Mr Hot Pants (Herradura reposado, mescal, campari, passion fruit, thai chilli pepper agave) or a Flame de Milo (Saffron infused Bombay dry gin, liquor 43, cava, flamed orange peel); any of which is sure to become a signature favorite! Don’t forget to ask for Lair’s signature red or white sangria!

Foodies, get excited! The Modern Dim Sum menu crafted by Celebrity Chef Chris Cheung, formerly of Monkey Bar, Nobu and Ruby Foo’s. With Lair’s owners stating that they are the first bar and lounge to serve an extensive and exclusive Dim Sum menu, Cheung features bites such as the Oysters On The Half Shell, Seared Scallop with Truffle Essence, Chicken ‘Pillows,’ Crispy Chicken Skin featuring a Johnny Blue Sauce and Dry Aged Black Angus Beef Dumplings.

In addition, Lair can host and cater any event ranging from fashion shows, dinner parties and luncheons to album release events and film/photo shoots, just to name a few. Lair will also design and accent the event with decorations and entertainment such as flowers, logo branding, customized themes, DJs, live bands, casino tables and a Champagne Ice or Martini Bar!

With everything one needs to have an unforgettable night, this must-visit nighttime haunt is the ideal location for night owls to feel elegant yet dangerous—all in one setting. So, go on and live a little… head to Lair!
