Veg Night Out! Holiday Drinks at Beauty & Essex
December 28, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT-0500
Let’s celebrate our 2022 holiday Veg Night Out with fellow veg’ns at the posh speakeasy bar, Beauty & Essex by the Lower East Side. With a functioning pawn shop, “hip” and “glamorous”, it is a trendy, new nightlife destination. It will be a perfect location for us to chill and enjoy the evening.
**New York Times:** “The lounge occupies what used to be M. Katz, a furniture store, next to the Essex Street Market. The front is set up as a pawn shop, with Flying V guitars and a Raymond Chandler-esque blonde behind the register. A back door leads to a night life emporium designed by AvroKo. The ground floor is a sleek restaurant … Upstairs, past a staircase that spirals around a soaring chandelier, is a wood-paneled lounge with divans and another bar. ”
What better way to spend your holiday seasons with your fellow vegetarian/vegan friends at this gorgeous venue
**Beauty & Essex (2nd Floor Bar)**
146 Essex Street, New York
From **New York Magazine:** “… Here the bi-level space oozes early-sixties glam, from the two-story chandelier to the peacock-themed grand dining room to the free-flowing pink Champagne in the ladies’ room… ”
**NYC Official Guide:** “Hidden behind a functioning pawn shop, Beauty & Essex is a true gem on the Lower East Side and widely regarded as one of New York’s most beautiful restaurants. Head inside and past the two-story crystal chandelier and settle in the sumptuous banquet seating …”
**TimeOut:** “Chef Chris Santos (Stanton Social) brings his globally inflected small plates to an another AvroKO-designed fantasyland on the Lower East Side. A curated thrift store in front hawks vintage jewelry, boom boxes and guitars; a gigantic one-story crystal chandelier fronts a grand, curving staircase; and the main dining room opens up under a massive skylight. ”
From **Zagat:** “Behind an ‘extra-cool’ hidden entrance in a pawn shop, this ‘vibrant’ LES resto-lounge draws a ‘glam crowd’ to ‘splurge’ on ‘imaginative’ New American bites in a bi-level space that ‘truly is a beauty’; if you ‘don’t mind a bit of shameless trendiness’ …, it ‘does impress.’”
With all the wonderful vegetarians and vegans who attend each of our events, every event we do is liked by our members, but our “Veg Night Out!” events are the most popular of all. People enjoy the fact they can mingle (speak with lots of different people), and they love the beautiful venues that we go to. Join us for a stellar evening of lively conversation and lovely surroundings with fellow vegetarians and vegans.
For our new members: this is an incredibly friendly and welcoming group. We’ll be hanging out by the main bar area, and you can get to know all our wonderful members.
This event has no cover and no minimum. But please do buy a drink or two, or as many as you like. There is a full selection of non-alcoholic beverages available if you prefer not to drink alcohol. The venue requests that you dress appropriately: business, business casual or smart casual.
**Where to meet: We will be at the 2nd floor bar area. Be sure to walk through the back door of the pawn shop in front, the main venue is hidden behind this door. Once inside the main venue walk upstairs to the elegant second floor bar.**
**Train Directions:** Take the F train to Delancey Street, or the J, M, or Z trains to Essex Street.
Join us for an elegant, fun and relaxed night of socializing with fellow vegetarians and vegans.
