Motel No Tell
Motel No Tell has frozen drinks, disco balls, and a tiny TV in the corner that, last we checked, was stuck on the home screen of a Casino DVD. The East Village bar is, indeed, themed like a motel, similar to what you’d find near the beach in 1980s Miami. It has neon signs, vintage furniture, and bathrooms that are numbered like motel rooms, and it’s a great spot to bring a group when you want to sip a piña colada and shout over a remix of “I Took a Pill in Ibiza.” There’s plenty of seating along the walls and lots of space to mingle, and there’s pizza on the menu in case you get hungry.
