Ignore the hype about this celeb-owned speakeasy and just enjoy the spacious, bi-level bar, if you can find it. (Hint: The entrance is marked by a sign for the Lower East Side Toy Company.) Surprisingly, the Back Room looks like an upscale hotel, with crimson-and-gold furniture and crystal chandeliers. And, in a campy nod to Prohibition, drinks are served in double-handled teacups, and on a recent evening, beer bottles arrived in surreptitious-looking brown paper bags.
