New York City is the place to visit if you want to shop for the latest fashion, see some of the best artworks in history or eat at the fanciest restaurants in the world. The city is home to a whopping 68 Michelin star restaurants. That means you can expect delicious food and impeccable service.
But, New York City is also home to some of the most unusual restaurants. That’s right—if you’re looking for a night out that isn’t your typical dinner and a movie, you might want to check out these four unusual places to eat in the city.
The Beauty Bar
Sometimes, you just can’t choose between going to the spa for a relaxing day and going to the bar for a drink. Now, you don’t have to make the tough decision! At The Beauty Bar, you can have both!
The Beauty Bar has a retro salon vibe to it and offers manicures along with martinis. That’s not all, though. They also host comedy shows and other events. Once the events are over, they open the floor for dancing to old school music.
The Beauty Bar is open all seven days of the week and encourage walk-ins. The New York location is at 231 E 14th Street, New York, NY 10003.
Jekyll and Hyde Club
Do you love Halloween? If so, you’re in luck. You no longer need to wait around for October to have some spooky fun. Instead, you can visit the Jekyll and Hyde Club.
This restaurant is basically a haunted house, with its Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde theme. It features animatronics, spooky special effects and live entertainment. Some of the characters you can expect to see include Claw the gargoyle and Tobias the werewolf.
Jekyll and Hyde Club offers pastas, pizzas, burgers, ribs and more. It’s is located at 91 7th Ave. S, New York, NY 10014.
If you’re looking for a truly unique experience, we’d recommend visiting La Caverna. The restaurant literally looks like a cave, with stalactites hanging from the ceiling. There’s also cave art on the walls.
Their menu features a variety of tacos, including shrimp tacos, chicken tacos and beef tacos. Fajitas and enchiladas are also served.
If you feel like moving around after your meal to burn off your calories, there’s no need to go anywhere else—La Caverna turns into a club at night.
La Caverna is located at 122 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002.
If you’re a fan of Tim Burton, you’ll love Beetle House. The restaurant is inspired by the director’s famous movies and it even features actors dressed in full costume. So, if you’ve ever wanted a photo op with Willy Wonka, you’ll have a chance at Beetle House.
The names of the drinks and dishes are also inspired by Burton’s films. So, you can enjoy foods such as Edward Burger Hands and Cheshire Mac and Cheese. Or, perhaps you’d rather have your fill of drinks such as Coco Skellington (a cocktail made with Rum, Gin, Lime, Crème de Coconut, Orange Blossom, and Pineapple Juice) or Blood Bags (IV blood bags filled with a red beverage resembling blood). Sounds like Tim Burton, doesn’t it?
Beetle House is located at 308 E 6th Street, New York, NY 10003.
