Blue Owl is a cool underground cocktail lounge with some of the best mixologists in New York and a great party vibe [Read the Nightclub & Bar Review]
Nightclub & Bar Review
Blue Owl is a gem of a cocktail lounge and bar that does some great happy hours and brings in a vibrant crowd with top-notch service and a good vibe. Make your way down a flight of stairs into this underground venue and you’ll find a warm interior swimming with rich golden colours, stylish furniture and rough-textured stone walls. Low-slung chairs and plush lounges wedged against the walls provide plenty of comfortable seating, and there’s also enough room for the big weekends, when the music is turned up, the place fills out and the energy level rises.
A cool copper-plated bar sits proudly in a corner with seats pulled up close and candles creating an intimate ambiance (during weeknights when it’s not too busy ). There’s also a private room that’s available for hire, and it’s unfortunate that its not open for everyone as it provides a bit more space and a good break from the sometimes hectic vibe of the main section.
The staff here are excellent at what they do and make some amazing cocktails that are ridiculously cheap during happy hours (especially Blue Owl’s Wednesday night specials), and that’s no surprise - bar manager Charles Hardwick has done stints at some of New York’s most prestigious venues and knows how to put together immaculate classics as well as some fantastic original mixes (try the signature Blue Owl on for size).
