Day 27—Friday, February 5th, 2010

Cloak NYC

Last Friday while visiting the Doghouse Saloon I discovered there’s a sister lounge bar in the basement. Jennifer and Melissa the two bartenders on duty invited me back, so that’s tonight’s destination. I mean who could turn down an invitation from these two?
Not me and I’m presuming not you either, so let’s head back to the East Village and revisit Cloak in the proper 365 Bar Crawl style.

Here we are, remember the head of security, Kebba from last week? Here he literally picks up Evon. Evon had several aliases she's goes by which led me to wonder if she's on the most wanted list. Well, she just made it on to my  most wanted list, whatever her name is!

Deja vu, it's Annie the coat check woman and the hardest working woman in the building!

The bar is packed, but luckily two lovely and familiar women remember me from last week...

Jennifer and Melissa serve up the first beer of the evening. Cheers!

Glug, glug, glug.

Matt and Renee were next to me at the bar and Renee happily flashes the 365 card. Thanks Renee!

Cloak exclusively serves Chimay on tap and it's delicious.

DJ Miestro was spinning tunes. I especially liked his remix of the Who's "Baba O'Rielly." Check out his MySpace page here: DJ Miestro.

Melissa takes care of the customers on this end of the bar.

The veiled party rooms make for a relaxing and fun spot to hang out and enjoy your cocktails.

Here's T.J. and Jason Mizrahi whooping it up. Jason runs an online advertising and marketing agency, check it out here: Ad Agency Direct.

The lovely Inga was seated next to T.J. and Jason, so I quickly turned my lens toward her. Wouldn't you?

Jennifer and Melissa are hard at work pouring drinks and entertaining the customers.

The place is officially packed.

Jennifer serves up the last beer and...

I sneak upstairs to the Doghouse Saloon for a hot dog from Harry the hot dog man.

They're free and delicious! Goodnight everybody!


Downstairs in the basement of the same building that is the Doghouse Saloon is a bar of a totally different stripe. As you travel down to the basement level of Cloak, two lovely and friendly bartenders will serve you up a drink and you can relax on comfortable cushiony couches in a candle-lit, fun and romantic styled space. A DJ spins tunes as the clientle relax in the veiled party spaces while some of the more adventurous shake it up on the dance floor.

It’s a cozy and intimate VIP setting at Cloak NYC. Make it past the velvet rope and you’ll find a full bar with two gorgeous and friendly bartenders. It’s a cozy setting with comfy couches, candlelit tables and a decadent and comfortable vibe. For now the bar is just open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 pm till around 4am, but look for a full seven days this spring. The lounge has only been open for about a month, but is already a must-stop nightspot for those in the know.

Jennifer's smile alone would be enough for business!
Great review(s)!
Both Upstairs and Downstairs prove to be one of the best!
