Tucked behind Park restaurant is Bar Céline, a neighborhood-y place serving cocktails and Park’s delish appetizers. Although within stumbling distance of hot spots Barcadia, Slip Inn, and Beauty Bar, this Parisian-styled lounge is in a different league. Instead of Jenga, Skee-Ball, and canned beers, Bar Céline boasts chandeliers (some with antlers), ornate wall paper, and a gravel bocce ball court. Specialty cocktails—our favorite is Lychee Thyme with Absolute Citron, lychee, lime, thyme, and soda—are moderately priced ($8) but worth every penny.
Best nights to go: If you’re looking to mingle with a sexy crowd, Saturday night is your best bet. For a less-crowded, laid-back scene, try Wednesday or Thursday.
