Shebeen

Though this trendy bar in New York's Little Italy is sleek and sophisticated, it lacks the drama and pretension that can ruin the loveliest of locales. It's comfortable, chill vibe makes it easy to focus on the brilliance of the bar menu. A wide array of specialty beverages and martinis are sure to please. Grab a seat at the bar and watch the expert mixologist whip up ginger, lychee or strawberry balsamic martinis. Complete with an indoor smoking lounge, Shebeen is on the list of New York nightlife's most relaxing destinations.
