I have a HOT tip for you. My most fabulous friends David and Reynald, have a LATE-LATE night salon in the Meat Packing District. Some nights they are open way pass midnight! The salon is tres-tres cool, as you arrive they offer you a glass of wine while you wait, they have a couple of flat screens where they play beautiful film noir and european movies, the place is a beautiful loft lounge, perfect for after work - or after Happy Hour, hang out.
