7. The Mulberry Project, 149 Mulberry St

The Mulberry Project may be like many underground spots of its species when judging by its somber lighting, limited space, and low-set ceilings, but it is its unmarked appearance and swanky style that set it apart. This sly locale in the streets of Little Italy presents a quality atmosphere evident in its gaudy decor. Though The Mulberry Project may offer little room to breathe, particularly on weekends, it does claim a fun outdoor space. Menu items like the Truffle Fries and distinct drink menu, make The Mulberry Project a favorite even with their costly prices. Unless you’ve mastered the skill of traversing land while crouching, do not wear heels or be too tall when visiting this bar.
