Harlan Records will remind you why it’s nice to be a human who leaves the house. The lounge near Union Square is inspired by Japanese listening bars, meaning you’ll be too busy processing the range of funky beats to even think about scrolling on your phone. Also holding your attention are classic cocktails, shelves of vinyl records, and mid-century aesthetics. Unlike some other new listening bars that have popped up recently (looking at you, Le Fantastique), this spot is surprisingly located down an alley, so it’s never too busy, and drinks take a bit longer to arrive. The cocktails are worth the wait.
