5. Shalel Lounge, 65 W 70th St

Can you smell the roses yet? Even when underground, Shalel Lounge arouses visitors with its intoxicating aroma, stemming from the abundance of rose petals combined with the other floral furnishings. This chic Moroccan-style lounge in the Upper West Side presents the perfect ambience whether it be for romance or congregation among friends, or even more ideally, romantic congregations among friends! With its pervasive exposed brick walls, charming furniture, and awesome water features, Shalel Lounge does much to keep your eyes wandering. Though the drink menu does much to satisfy variety, Shahel’s Lamb Meatballs and Bacon Wrapped specialties are just two of the many delicious options available here.
