Best bar in which to hide from ex in a tropical forest of bamboo New York 2004 - CROBAR - CLOSED
Upon entering CROBAR you'll find yourself navigating a maze-like hallway laden with T.G.I. Friday's-esque signage before entering the chic central bar, connected by an illuminated tunnel to a seemingly unfillable dance arena. The bar is made cozier and swankier by stalks of fake bamboo that haphazardly surround posh multicolored stools, sectioning off high-art fashion types into intimate pods. While it is difficult to mingle in this "reed room," it is easy to cower discreetly among the huge plastic stems.
