Helmed by a duo of Greek sisters, the Chios-originated mastihashop stocks a thoughtfully sourced assortment of pastas, sauces, spreads, and body-care products. Several of mastihashop's products incorporate mastiha, a Greek tree-derived sap that has been found to have therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Sip Mastiha and Vanilla Salep, a creamy beverage crafted from wild orchid root ($5.50) or snack on fluffy lemon cookies flavored with the tart citrus harvested from the Greek island of Chios ($9). Shoppers can also find specialty oils, gift baskets, fair-trade body products, and all-natural cosmetics.
Although there are no pianos at Pianos, this Lower East Side nightclub plays host to a variety of live acts. On the right night, one could stumble upon the knitting-themed Stitch ‰Û÷n‰Ûª Bitch or a DJ spinning ‰Û÷80s tunes. In addition to the main stage, there is a smaller stage upstairs for acoustic sets. Previous performances have included indie pop band Passion Pit and actor/musician Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The bi-level former piano shop (the bar owners simply didn't take down the old sign) serves typical bar fare: nachos, wings, burgers, sandwiches and salads, as well as daily happy hour specials and a few desserts. Fans swear by their ("lethal") frozen margaritas.
Settle into one of many urbanized nooks in the expansive reaches of Karaoke Boho, where private brick-lined lounge rooms come fully furnished with top-quality speaker boxes and crisp flatscreens. This generously sectioned-off space provides you and your backup singers the freedom to let loose on the mics with the safety of a buffer between you and crooning karaoke strangers. To loosen up the vocal chords, order some courage-boosting liquid concoctions such as melon balls, martinis, Long Islands, and other fine spirits ($7–$12 each).
