For beach-shack/living-room vibes and a big selection of Mediterranean/American/Tex-Mex bar food (the breakfast tacos are actually pretty good), check out Forgtmenot. It’s on the lower (and cooler) part of the Lower East Side and they’re missing an “e” in their name, so you know you should be drinking here. The space is small and casual, and it’s right next to its sister restaurant, Kiki’s.

CloudM Rooftop Bar
CloudM is the rooftop at the CitizenM Hotel on the LES. It isn’t the coolest rooftop in the world, but it has a great view, and it stays pretty quiet.
Last Light is the rooftop bar at an LES hotel called Sister City. It isn’t huge, but it has a decent-sized patio, and it’s great for outdoor drinks.
You can skip the Cajun restaurant on the ground floor of Canary Club on the LES, and head to the jazz club downstairs.

Sons of Essex
This restaurant, Sons of Essex, is a damn near facsimile of Beauty & Essex, not necessarily in decor, but certainly in purpose. The idea here is exactly the same: Come looking good and looking to get wasted, and maybe have some food.
