New York City-Midtown Manhattan
May 11, 2018
A quirk, clubby restaurant/lounge spread over two levels Haven is co-owned by actor Bershan Shaw. Located in an elegant midtown townhouse, there’s a pleasant 1920s feel to the place; the décor is eccentric: velvet wallpaper and snakeskin leather, a scattering of unusual objets. Smooth swing sounds are the order of the day though these are replaced by more contemporary tunes later in the evening. Cocktails are good, as is the bar food, an array of dinky things under the banner global tapas, and there’s a neat little balcony when air is required.
