Beauty Bar x Baohaus

PLAN DATE: FRI / SEPT. 6

PLAN DETAILS:

A good time doesn’t need to be super fancy, and we’ve got a date night for you that’s low maintenance but lots of fun. Start your night at Beauty Bar, a retro salon-themed bar near Union Square. They place has a little bit of a dive-y feel, but with a lot of style with glittery walls and hair drying chairs against the wall. You can even actually get your nails done with their Martinis and Manicure happy hour special, where $10 gets you a drink and a basic manicure. They also have a larger space in the back that serves as a dance floor when they play a mix of modern chart toppers and oldies dance hits later at night on weekends.

For a late night snack, head over to Baohaus, a small restaurant that puts a twist on bao buns by filling them with delicious Taiwanese-Chinese inspired bites like all natural fried chicken and tofu. The place was started by brothers Evan and Eddie Huang⁠—the latter wrote the book that inspired the sitcom Fresh Off the Boat⁠—and has the hip hop vibe Eddie is known for with graffiti and stickers covering the walls. Order a bunch of baos to try with a side of taro fries, and feel free to chow down late into the night.
