This swanky, low-lit lounge brought to you by the owners of Punch and Judy has an airy, sultry feel thanks to the high linen draped windows, the low leather banquettes, and mellow ambient music fluttering from the turntables. With two rooms—the front a rich burgundy hue, the back a calming crème color with a candle-infested fireplace on the back wall—there’s plenty of room to hunker down for a Red Bull, vodka, and Absolut Mandarin ($10) or a plate of gourmet panini sliders from the high-end bar menu. Warning for all couples seeking romantic refuge: While Vig 27 is a quiet date spot on weekdays, the crowd tends to thicken with overdressed but barely clothed singles on Fridays and Saturdays.
