Bar Goto is mature, but we wouldn’t say it’s uptight. Sure, you aren’t going to meet anyone on the dance floor here - but that’s because there is no dance floor. This is a tiny Japanese-inspired cocktail bar on the LES where you can eat some very good bar snacks and have a martini with a cherry blossom in it. It’s like no other place in the area. Come here and pretend you’re in Tokyo for an hour or two. And if you end up hanging out for bit, try the miso chicken wings.
