Ok so I have one more NYC post after this one but had to devote this entire post to my favorite spot of the trip...Beauty & Essex (brought to you by Staton Social team). If you are going to be in the city I HIGHLY recommend making a reso at this spot!
The entrance is literally a pawn shop! You walk to the back and tell the bouncer your name and he will let you through a door that takes you into a 3 story gorgeous restaurant and bar!
Who would have thought this stunning place would have been in the back of a pawn shop?!!!
The energy was high and decor was gorgeous! I had the most amazing cocktail...TheEmerald Gimlet (ketel 1, basil, lemon nectar, fresh lime juice). If your into sweets, the desserts there were out of control!!! I recommend the "Box of Doughnuts" and "Devils Food Layer cake"!
You have to take a trip to the ladies room (I know its an odd request) But they have a full on lounge and free champagne bar in there!!
Snagging some free bubbly! (American Apparel velvet long sleeve mini and All Saints Box clutch)
