A steakhouse can achieve greatness in many categories: the primest cuts, the creamiest spinach, the bleu-cheesiest wedge, or...the most colorful basement nightclub? Meet the uncontested greatest (in the latter category): Coco De Ville.
Accessible via its own, list-assisted entrance, CDV's a trippy club/lounge decorated in the spirit of its fictional namesake -- a hostess so mysterious, all that's known about her is her penchant for hypercolor, booze, and basements. The resplendent drinking's divvied up into three distinct zones: the marble-topped bar's abetted by three Wonderlandish couches (striped maroon, paisley yellow, pink) all hanging from the ceiling like swings, or a bit character in Oz. Just under that's a bottle-service lounge decked out with similarly festive recliners, and further out's a fully-couched-and-table'd smoking patio -- hidden from the street to protect you from the flashbulbs of the paparazzi, or the chinstrap of Surgeon General (Ret) C. Everett Coop.
