Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale bar fare and drinks at Hype Lounge on East 14th Street.
Recently deemed a sports bar for foodies by the New York Times, Hype Lounge satisfies desires that spring from the body's need for food, drink, and sport. Guests can hypnotize themselves by staring into the bar's multiple HDTVs and sate their bellys' thirst by investigating the menu. Test drive small plates such as the six-piece buffalo wings, which come in six flavors including green thai curry, maple chipotle, and ginger honey ($9), or extend your tongue toward larger options such as the foot long hot dog ($11), served with hype fries and sauerkraut. Hickory-smoked baby back ribs keep mouths in top chewing shape ($20), and a hearty Caesar salad ($19) with your choice of shrimp, steak, or chicken gives tongues a taste of food that's fit for a Roman ruler's spork. Hype has 50 beers available, including Prohibition ($8), Duvel ($12), and Kasteel Dark ($7) on draft and bottles of Sapporo ($7), Heineken ($7), and Peroni ($7).
Hype’s impressive array of 19 game-displaying HDTVs paired with an elegant atmosphere is an unexpected yet winning combination, much like ice cream steaks or owldogs. An ideal setting for digging into classy cuisine and jabbering at wrong refs, Hype Lounge provides a cozy common ground for food fans and sports supporters alike.
