So how did I end up here? Relaxing on a nice night with a drink in my hand?

Looking for a low key bar in NYC can be a daunting tasks, I am finding that out as I get older. There are times where you want to escape the following after a long day at work:
Jersey Shore crowd
Sex & the City wannabe crowd
The "omg" celebrities go here crowd
The Fashion professional crowd
It's NYC, and yes we are diverse, but times you just need a crowd detox!
I always find great spots through my friend's and it is always when I am not expecting them. Me and a friend of mine decided to avoid the Hell's Kitchen/West Village happy hour rush as usual, and head to Lolita Lower East Side.
I like Lolita for a few reasons:
It is located in LES
Dim lighting, exposed brick, and Led Zeppelin playing in the background=win!
I'm always a sucker for a jukebox
How can you not love the shrine to Questlove?
The drink I ordered was the Lolita (cheesy right? lol) It was really a Sex on the Beach made with raspberry vodka. It was a very good drink!
The artwork on the walls was a great touch, this is a bar where you can actually sit with a friend or two and catch up on life as I did that night.
It was nice to go out of my usual area and try something new, I tend to do that a lot this Spring & beyond! Lolita is located on at Orchard & Allen.
What are you guys trying new this Spring? Any recommendations for happy hour, he he!
