Cocktails and entertainment are a good match anywhere, but the newly renovated BOA Lounge brings them together in a particularly sophisticated setting. Live music and 70-inch TVs ensure that you'll never have to search for conversation, while a lounge menu of appetizers and fresh oysters keeps grumbling stomachs from interrupting.
As easy as it is to spend the entire night at BOA Lounge, doing so would mean missing out on its equally worthy sibling, Brooklynn's Bistro. Located in the same building but with an entirely unique menu of fine Italian cuisine, the bistro has recently taken on a new chef who's ready to excite with creative renditions of squid-ink linguine or roasted veal chop. Such dishes match the elegance of the dining room, which features cozy booths, crystal chandeliers, and a full bar. If you plan on visiting both the lounge and the bistro, wear something nice; BOA Lounge has a dress code in effect to prevent another unfortunate propeller-hat incident.
