Let them eat cake! Or cupcakes, at least. That's what the huge mural of Marie Antoinette on the ceiling would probably say at this cocktail lounge/sweets shop. While a bar that serves cupcakes along with booze would be interesting enough, the owners (who also run sceney lounge The Eldridge nearby) have raised the stakes by actually infusing their cupcakes with alcohol, including an espresso and chocolate cupcake kicked up a notch with Jameson and a vodka-infused, cinnamon-sprinkled red cupcake. They probably won¹t get you drunk, but just in case you want to guarantee your sobriety you can always order the alcohol-free red velvet cupcake. The narrow, glowing space is bordered by gilded molding, as if you were standing inside of a giant painting. As at the Eldridge, this lounge is big on velvet ropes and bouncers; as one would expect, both the cupcakes and drinks here are not cheap.—Keith Wagstaff
