Straylight

Perfect For: Date Night Drinks & A Light Bite Impressing Out of Towners

Bring a date to Straylight, and you’ll seem like the kind of person who knows all the after-hours parties and who probably has a lot of secrets. It’s the subterranean cocktail bar under Juku - an izakaya and omakase restaurant in Chinatown. To get in, you walk into a bare hallway on a nondescript street and down a bright white stairwell with pink fluorescent lights. Once inside the small space with a ceiling that looks like stained glass, you can order cocktails with ingredients like sushi rice and smoked pork skin, and small plates like very good meatball sliders on Japanese milk bread. If you’re okay spending $20 on cocktails, then Straylight is a unique spot to impress someone.
