|Eden @ Union Square Lounge downstairs Coffeeshop|
Finally a breath of fresh air in the New York scene! We have gone too long without a home for lesbians who are gorgeous, have money and know how to party. While the spot has a lounge atmosphere and is a cozy size, it was quite packed at 11pm and just got more and more packed as the night went on. Best part is that there was no cover, but don't be mistaken there are a few ground rules that I have no problems with at all. 1. No Men, saw a few fashionable gay men, but just leave your men at home thanks. 2. Dress Code, they said just look like your going out to dinner, so just dress up ladies. But they were pretty chill about it, no bullshit at the door. But I definitely respect their wishes, since they were extremely nice and still let me in.
Lets just say there are other long running spots in the city with a horrible looking crowd that enforce silly headgear rules. This spot is fancy, have cute drinks and even a menu for if you get there earlier. It was a mix of 20's and 30 somethings that resembled a classic LA mix. They had a sweet DJ that was groovin' and as the night progressed chairs were removed to lay a mini dance floor. No extreme bootay shakin' but it's okay, I can always do that at home.
Overall it was a lovely Wednesday night, and to be honest the only Wednesday night that is worth going to in New York. Brooklyn's Metropolitan comes close, but Eden definitely has that New York flavor that club goers crave. As a jaded lesbian new yorker, I was thoroughly impressed. They even said thanks for coming as we left. When is the last time staff said that to you at any of the regular old crusty establishments? Check it out and Enjoy It !
