Buddha Bar, New York City
Described as a "Nightlife mecca for celebrities" the swanky Asian-themed Parisian landmark has finally crossed the Atlantic and set up her swanky sister in New York City.
Tucked away in the now very trendy Meat-Packing district, Buddha Bar New York offers the same soulful ambience and seductive soundtrack that her Parisian counterpart does. Once you get past the velvet ropes, you are welcomed into a plush lounge area and a huge decorative dining room being overlooked by the signature giant buddha.
We didn't have dinner here, but we did enjoy cocktail hour in this cool hotspot.
They offer an array of exotic cocktails on their drink menu, all with a little Asian fruity flair (mango, ginger, passion fruit mixed in the concoctions)
Dress Code: Swanky dress attire optional. Although, you may feel a bit out of place in jeans and sneakers.
Address: 25 Little West 12th St. New York, NY
Directions: Located in the Meat-Packing district between Washington and 9th St.
