Asian Restaurant

“This place is named for a famous former London opium den that was visited by the likes of Aldous Huxley. Decor is on point (pseudo-East/Southeast Asian style, with peacocks, bold accents, jewel/gold colors, and lots of velvet). Pros: friendly bar staff, high quality cocktails, creative menu, lively crowd, best regular house music offering in the entire city every Thursday night -- called "Secret Garden" -- for real, if you like house music and you need something to do on Thursday night, check this out. Cons: expensive.”
