Speak soft, and speakeasy

by julesfric


Tuesday night I unexpectedly met up with my fab friend. I’ve been dying to have a cocktail a Raines Law Room- a speakeasy located on W17th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue.

I have a love of speakeasies. Perhaps it is the transport back into time. A time where people dressed like ladies, spoke with wit, and acted coy and flirty. Or maybe it’s the divine cocktails made by bartendersMIXOLOGISTS. These guys and gals are the best in their fields. Many of them have won awards for their craft. Finally, it could be the environment. Speakeasies have a very laid back vibe while maintains order. They appeal to a crowd that enjoys conversation and intellect.


Although speakeasies can be strict on dress codes, and most require reservations, I appreciate the lack of pretentious bouncers. And at $12-$20 a cocktail, they better be nice to me!
But truthfully, Raines Law Room was great.

Having made no reservations, we arrived around 20:30 and left our name. The hostess iMessaged me. We wandered a few blocks to Flatiron Lounge (very chic and upcoming so not yet snobby) where we enjoyed a nice glass of wine and a cocktail. A half hour later I messages the hostess on availability.

We sat in the garden as the weather was beautiful for NYC. A great friend, great conversation, and great drinks. The evening was topped off with the delightful bathroom wallpaper.

Suggesting some extra bathroom activities?
