PLAN DATE: MON / APR. 15
The ultra-successful duo behind the Sanctuary Hotel and its many idk tonight-approved ventures (Tender Steak & Sushi, Haven Rooftop, Sushi by Bou) is back with yet another alluring pleasure trap: unique, fresh and affordable dining experience Sushi Lab. Located in the dark and sleek lobby of the hotel, the $50 omakase menu includes 10 pieces of sushi, a fresh, colorful hand roll and a smoothly salted miso soup, while a la carte options range from Blue Fine Toro Tartare to Uni Macron. It’s an upscale, delicious steal that promises the proper sushi experience you desire for a date night.
When you’ve officially savored every single piece of amazingly fresh fish, head over to Aqua Bar & Lounge—a vivid, wildly colorful and super sensual H2O inspired space inside of the Grace Hotel—for a round of cool drinks. Centered around the hotels smooth, neon-glowing pool, you and your person will feel practically whisked away to summer sunshine, dancing, and fun, without having to step outside the city. Take your pick of their sweet, strong frozen drinks and relax by the dreamy poolside with the chill beach club vibes that are perfect for lazy lounging.
