A Night at Populares NYC

by xoJohn

Alphabet City has a new watering hole, full of signature cocktails, delicious Mexican fare, and artistic flair. Populares NYC has been open for less than 90 days and has already become a neighborhood favorite. We wandered by on a rainy Monday night and found the place jumping, filled with happy bar flies and diners enjoying the jovial atmosphere. The bar area is flooded with ambient lighting which compliments the beautiful imported tiles on the bar itself.  The tiles came from Mexico adding to the authenticity, an intentional homage to the homeland of Populares’ cuisine. The windows are adorned with a railing of various cacti, adding a homey touch.

The biggest date night of the year is slowly approaching.  With just a little under 2 weeks before the main event it is time to start making some reservations or at least exploring options.  If you and sugar lips have a sweet tooth we suggest you indulge that urge with a trip to the Sugar Factory.  We ventured to Times Square and sampled their Valentine Day menu. This year the menu is full of fun flirty nostalgic options that will satisfy the sugar obsessed kid in you and the booze loving adult.  The assortment of items include quirky cocktails with cotton candy and theatrical dry ice, adventurous appetizers with sexy cheese pulls and spicy Cheeto dust, hearty beefy entrees and a selection of decadent sweets.

As usual I was running late. My dining companion texted me a picture of his refreshing Margarita to make me feel even worse as I was making my way to Brooklyn. When I finally arrived, I was greeted by our spunky waiter, an annoyed friend, and the delicious scent of Mexican food. All was right in the world.
