Gold Dust Lounge – Union Square
Despite being a tourist Mecca, Gold Dust Lounge is a fantastic little bar that every local should visit. At night there is live music and the bar gets pretty packed, but during the day Gold Dust is a mellow oasis with $3.50 champagne, margaritas and Irish coffees.
I’ve always had a soft spot for dilapidated luxury, and Gold Dust’s well worn Victorian inspired decor fits the bill perfectly. The comfy couches and long wooden bar beckon exhausted Union Square shoppers in for a midday tipple.
