Eat Sushi In A Townhouse, Then Head To A Funhouse For Everything Queer
First stop tonight: BondST. Situated in a historic, Soho-style brownstone with three distinct levels, this Japanese restaurant boasts modern interpretations of classic Asian dishes, plus a full, specialized sushi bar. The first floor is an intimate, cozy lounge with that aforementioned sushi bar while the main floor offers a seventy-five seat dining room and a beautiful vantage point of cobblestoned Bond Street below. Go for the Omakase tasting menu—it'll run you $95-$140. We recommend making a reservation ahead of time here.
For your next and last stop, head to No Bar—a newly opened gay bar from Angela Dimayuga in the space that formerly housed narcbar. The new spot for everything queer, No Bar plays host to drag shows, dance parties, late-night DJ sets and more—all in a space lined with cow-print booths, art by Dachi Cole and illuminated by neon lights. For cocktails, try the Matcha Haze (gin, mezcal, matcha, lemon, and egg white), or Spil The Tea (bourbon, mezcal, caffe amaro, rooibos, vanilla, and mole bitters), and if you're feeling more of a wine or beer night, they've got that too. They also host regular cool events like Drag Bingo. Check out the full calendar here.
