East Village

$$$$Perfect For:Dancing

The Blind Barber is a barbershop in the daytime, but at night, there’s a speakeasy-type bar in back. There will probably be a doorman out front, but you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting in unless they’re at capacity. Technically, there’s no dance floor, but if it’s late and crowded enough, you’ll probably find some people trying to get something started. You can either join in, or enjoy one of the luxurious booths off the side. For an especially lively night in the East Village, this place is still one of your best options.
