Little Sister Lounge

Slip into the underground and dive into unknown pleasures. Dimly lit and velvet-laced, our intimate cocktail lounge is a sultry and seductive trip back to the heyday of the clandestine, cavern-like settings of East Village’s 1990s lounge scene. But the historical references go back even further to the 19th century, with a custom wallcovering depicting the neighborhood’s pastoral past. Wood-clad, barrel-vaulted ceilings are reminiscent of a hidden underground chamber where whiskey might have been stored in the bootlegger era. Cush banquettes, locally crafted vintage chandeliers, jewel-toned velvet sofas, a glowing copper DJ stand, and a mirrored-copper bar illuminated by an overhead bank of backlit whiskey bottles bring the seductive space to life.  Under psychedelic lighting and in the midst of our scantily clad servers, a night at Little Sister is one you won’t soon forget.

Little Sister, adjacent to Moxy East Village, is independently operated by Tao Group and is not affiliated with the hotel.

Admission is by Doorman Discretion Only.


Located one level below the restaurant, its low vaulted ceilings, sexy velvet seating, and gold and leather accents give Little Sister a cavern-like feel and create an exclusive, in-the-know vibe. The design is enriched by a mirror-copper bar illuminated by an overhead bank of backlit whiskey bottles.


Laced with lush decor, soft-to-the-touch velvet sofas, DJ booth, vaulted ceilings, and dotted with magical metallics, Little Sister is a one-of-a-kind venue for your next event that will have all your guests talking. Soak in the seductive vibe and dance the night away under psychedelic lighting, all while you’re waited on by our scantily clad staff.
