If phrases like “botanical elixirs” and “Stevie Nicks” light up your brain’s pleasure centers, you’re going to love Hekate. This sober bar next to Enchantments in the East Village is a whole very niche vibe, and we’re here for it. They serve a combination of mocktails, teas, and coffee drinks, and it feels very much like the kind of place where those who like to shop for spell candles next door would want to hang out after. If you have a certain type of obscure taste in music, someone in your friend group will be shrieking “omg I love this song” as the playlist transitions seamlessly from unplugged versions of Yes songs to The Replacements covering the 101 Dalmatians theme. The bar is quiet enough to facilitate actual conversations, but happening enough that you still feel like you’re at a legit EV dive.
