If you’re with someone who’s easily impressed by secrets, you could tell them about your middle school nickname. But maybe that nickname was too embarrassing, in which case, just bring them to The Back Room while you’re hanging out on the LES (or waiting for a table at La Contenta, which is right next door). This speakeasy bar has a fireplace, some embroidered couches, and cocktails that come in tea cups.
