Corner Social is a lot of things rolled in one. It’s a place where you can sit down and have a kale salad and some salmon with a friend, and it’s also a place where you can show up on a Friday night and listen to a DJ play to a crowd as big as you'll find at any club in the Meatpacking District. The space has brick walls, wooden ceiling beams, plenty of tables, and a fireplace in one corner, and there’s plenty of patio seating on warm days. It’s a great spot to meet up with a group (especially if some people are hungry), just be aware that you might have to wait for a table on weekends.
