Silvery tendrils curl across a wall-wide mirror while dozens of sprouting lamps descend from the ceiling above the bar, looking for all the world like photoluminescent grass stalks. Suggesting a tension between nature and artifice, these decorative flourishes evoke the ethos of La Maison as a whole, which seeks to combine the sleek modernity of a contemporary night club with the racey energy of an old-school cabaret. At candle-lit tables, guests sip craft cocktails or enjoy bottle service while out on the floor, skilled dancers inspire amateur rug-cutters to show off their stuff. Regular events include salsa lessons on Wednesdays and costume parties on Thursdays that let guests break out their favorite 70s and 80s duds.
