the candlelight glow of the Room.

sitting here on a rather gray day, i think about the Room.  The first Room concept opened it’s doors in December 1995 and spawned four other spots, aptly named, The Other Room (in the West Village), Another Room (in Tribeca), The Room (Miami Beach), the Other Room (Venice Beach)…although I’ve not had the pleasure of visiting the latter two.

The Room is one of those dark, sexy places with thick candles offering up a warm hue against the brick walls.  It’s a great spot for a glass of vino or a beer (long list on their chalkboard).  I was always quite impressed with myself after taking out-of-town visitors to this spot. They thought I was cool.  In turn, I felt cool.

During the fall, the windows open onto Sullivan street.  When it’s cold, it’s a warm winter spot to chill out and talk.

I always liked it.
