Dear Irving

Step into another era—make that multiple eras—at this elegant bar and lounge where each room transports you to different time period. One lounge is decked out in mid-century modern furniture, with JFK quotes and vintage ashtrays. Another brings tipplers to the flapper era, with tufted sofas and Gatsby-style opulence. Crushed velvet is everywhere in another room set in 1857 while the room set in 1772 features sexual cartoons fancied by the day's French aristocracy. Reservations encouraged. Mon-Thurs 5 p.m.-2 a.m., Fri-Sat 5 p.m.-3 a.m., Sun 5 p.m.-1 a.m.
