Nexus Lounge - Some people may argue the namesake claim of the East Village’s newest addition, but true New Yorkers will appreciate the geographical joke. Set below ground in a covert, VIP-style setting, Nexus offers a fresh uptown lounge act as an alternative to the more traditional pub-going crowd of street-level sister, One & One. Surprisingly spacious in both seating and standing areas, this open-room lounge turns schoolboys to men and college girls to dancing queens with the flick of a DJ’s wrist. Drinks are slightly steeper than those upstairs, and the barstaff works to emulate the metro minimalism so often seen on the Westside. If you don’t mind your beer by the bottle, pop your head below for a quick drink and eye-candy fill-up—just check you’ve got the duds to match your bills.
