The East Village cool kids club El Dorado Cocktail Lounge turns four this week!
The ultimate hipster haven, El Dorado is grunge-chic with western flair, featuring 1940s wooden décor, retro movies on rotation and a white buffalo-head trophy hanging from the wall. This downtown night spot is known for classic cocktails and a roster of indie DJs spinning fresh dance beats across alternative genres, from Disco Mondays and ‘90s Fridays to Boys & Girls Saturdays with local faves Adam Salter and Gabe Vega.
El Dorado is hosting a big anniversary bash on Tuesday, November 20 with a guest DJ set by The Faint. Dance Macabre indie rockers are first performing live at House of Blues, and will keep the party going on the one’s and two’s into the late night. Also check out supporting sets by El Dorado mainstays Adam Salter, Saul Q, Kid Wonder, Charlie Rock, V-Rock and Cam’ron. Get event details here
Head to El D early to sip on the new fall cocktail menu. Stand-out spirits include the Monk Beard, made with rum, lime, mint and green chartreuse; the Roman Candle with bourbon, amaro, suze and burlesque bitters; the Sabertooth with rye, cocchi torino, cinnamon bark syrup and mole bitters; and the go-to Moscow Mule with vodka, lime, ginger beer and bitters. Cocktails are discounted to $5 each during happy hour ‘til 9pm.
