Sometimes, you just can’t choose between going to the spa for a relaxing day and going to the bar for a drink. Now, you don’t have to make the tough decision. At The Beauty Bar, you can have both! They have a retro, salon-style environment and offer manicures along with martinis. That’s not all, though. They also host comedy shows and other events. Once the events are over, they open the floor for dancing to the best old-school music.

The Beauty Bar is open seven days a week and encourages walk-ins. The New York location is at 231 E 14th Street, New York, NY 10003.

Jekyll & Hyde Club

Do you love Halloween? If so, you’re in luck. You no longer need to wait around for October to have some spooky fun. Instead, you can visit the Jekyll & Hyde Club. This restaurant is a haunted house, with its Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde theme. It features animatronics, spooky special effects, and live entertainment. Some of the characters you can expect to see include Claw the gargoyle and Tobias the werewolf. They offer pasta, pizzas, burgers, ribs, and more.

Jekyll & Hyde Club is located at 91 7th Ave. S, New York, NY 10014.

If you’re looking for a truly unique experience, we’d recommend visiting La Caverna. The restaurant perfectly replicates a cave, with stalactites hanging from the ceiling, even down to the cave art on the walls. Their menu features a variety of tacos, including shrimp, chicken, and beef tacos. Fajitas and enchiladas are also served. If you get a burst of energy and feel like moving around after your meal, there’s no need to go anywhere else—the restaurant turns into a club at night.

La Caverna is located at 122 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002.

If you’re a fan of Tim Burton, you’ll love Beetle House. The restaurant is inspired by the director’s famous movies and it even features actors dressed in full costume. So, if you’ve ever wanted a photo op with Willy Wonka, you’ll have a chance at Beetle House. The names of the drinks and dishes are also inspired by Burton’s films. So, you can enjoy foods such as Edward Burger Hands and Cheshire Mac and Cheese. Or, perhaps you’d rather have your fill of drinks such as Coco Skellington (a cocktail made with rum, gin, lime, crème de coconut, orange blossom, and pineapple juice) or Blood Bags (IV blood bags filled with a red beverage resembling blood). Sounds like Tim Burton, doesn’t it?

Beetle House is located at 308 E 6th Street, New York, NY 10003.
