Sneak into this Prohibition-inspired Speakeasy After a Southern Feast
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
First, satisfy your appetite at Tipsy Parson. Dressed in sophisticated Southern decor and borrowing some inspiration from European bistros, this Chelsea-based restaurant is as polished as it is charming. Just be sure to indulge in their staple Southern fare, like Heirloom Red Grits and build-your-own biscuits (including everything from green tomato marmalade to "Nash-Vegas” hot fried chicken). For dessert, we recommend the Sticky Sorghum Cake with toffee sauce, vanilla gelato, and maldon salt.
After dinner, head to Chelsea’s The 18th Room. Right away, the visual flair will stun you. With forest green velvet booths, gold accents, and, of course, swing and Jazz tunes playing overhead, The 18th Room has its roots deep in vintage New York City aesthetics. The name is even a reference to the 18th Amendment (aka the beginning of the Prohibition Era). The real icing on the cake, however, is that you create a unique taste profile upon entering, allowing the bartender to craft custom cocktails.
