    Great food, amazing atmosphere & beautiful decor. Its a bit loud as The Darby Band (which is great) performs during dinner. There is a club/lounge in the basement be sure to check it out.

    A modern day speakeasy that’s the perfect balance between swank and downtown cool. Enjoy live jazz music and delicious food upstairs, and then head downstairs for lounge atmosphere! —Anna

    Chef Alex Guarnaschelli's latest hotspot in New York City takes the supper club trend to the next level with live music & a menu full of classic American dishes. You can't miss the Lobster Newburg.

    You'll get serenaded by a gowned, white-gloved singer drenched in diamonds as you enjoy a DELICIOUS meal in a dim, intimate setting. After dinner, you can party downstairs at the restaurant's club.

    Owner & Chef Alex Guarnaschelli’s swanky new supper club is complete with a house band and a menu full of retro classic dishes. The luscious Lobster Newburg is chef Guarnaschelli’s favorite dish here

    A 2nd level for all-night hanging, plus a separate lounge menu to snack on & cocktails like the Tin Lizzy (gin, St. Germain, grapefuit, cuke) & the Tommy Gun (tequila, blood orange, orange bitters).

    This swanky speakeasy is a playground for models in their 20s, decked out in six-inch heels and two packs of cigs in their studded clutches. Raw bar and small plates for the size zero set. Read more

    Clear your calendar. This is a meal not to be rushed. Eat, drink and enjoy the performances. Four hours is the standard here, not the exception.

    Great spot, Darby Band rocks especially after a few fancy cocktails. Ricotta crostinis with brussel sprout leaves were amazeballs.

    House band's got soul. Worth paying the $25 per head when eating but real dirty that they don't tell you about it. Overall f*&%ing great place

    You must try the sauted spinach on the secret menu! Ask your waiter but don't tell them who told you! ... The password is "minkus"

    Celebrate the end of another weekend Brazilian style with a mojito (or two) at Darby's Brazilian model party, Farofa. Who says Sundays can't be sexy? Read more
