At first glance, La Caverna seems like the Rainforest Cafe offshoot no one asked for. It’s a restaurant and dance club on the Lower East Side where a door with a simple cave painting leads you to a basement with stalactites on the ceiling and walls the texture of rock bleeding purple light from the crevices. But that’s where commitment to the paleolithic theme ends. La Caverna serves some pretty solid Mexican food and margaritas in a space that just happens to be a cavernous room. At night, it turns into more of a party with music blasting out of speakers embedded in the fake rock walls and big groups ordering hookah at the bar. If that’s not your thing, come before 8pm for a fun, lowkey spot when you want to do Taco Tuesday somewhere a little different.
