Underbar, New York, NY

Underbar Restaurant Review

: Though it’s not exactly new, it’s still one of Union Square’s chicest spots and the place to come for seeing and sipping. Located underneath the W New York - Union Square (hence the name), the glamorous and minimalist Underbar won’t disappoint. It’s filled to the brim with everyone from heavyweights to the humdrum, lounging on the sleek velvet couches or sipping pricey cocktails in the quasi-private, curtained nooks that line the square room's perimeter (with the pull of a chord, a server will be standing in front of you in seconds ready to refill your beverage). Hit the bar during the week for a more sedate affair.
