Voodoo Lounge
Voodoo Lounge
Location: Greenwich Village
Overview: This is a popular bar among the magically inclined and has been known to serve all manner of people. Everyone is welcome as long as they don't start anything Topaz has to finish.

One must descend a flight of black slate stairs flanked by walls papered in rock concert programs before discovering…

This is no ordinary urban mecca. This is no sports bar, no yuppie hipster watering hole. This… is the famed Voodoo Lounge.The lights are recessed into the wall, and of a golden hue, dimmed low enough that one can see where one is going, but still be able to consider the atmosphere intimate. People more than a dozen feet away will appear as mere shadows until one is right up on them. The walls are paneled in mahogany wood. The bar, that travels down the left side of the room is teak with a black marble top, polished to a fare-thee-well. Taps are visible just past the lip of the counter top. There's a recess in it so that a bartender can slide drinks to the waiting patrons. Behind the bar, the expected mirror — this one beveled on the edges. Glasses and more elaborate drink ware hangs upside down from a wooden rack above.

The bar stools appear to be leather and wood, but they are reinforced to handle patrons of superhuman size. The floor is carpeted in plush brown carpet, thick enough to sink into, though nothing seems to ever reach it if anything is spilled. There are cozy tables and booths clustered at the front and back of the room. A long, thickly stuffed leather sofa, also in brown, is along the entire front wall and side wall. A hidden moving light casts random shapes and sigils around the room in muted hues — slowly enough so it's ambiance-enhancing rather than disorienting. Potted palms flank the door and stand in the corners. There are hanging plants above the tables, leaves dripping lazily down toward the floor, but not enough to impede anyone there. Carefully hidden speakers pipe music into the room that varies from the contemporary to the exotic. There is no television behind the bar. The back wall has a floor-to-ceiling fountain that trickles away serenely. A few feet in front of the back wall is a modest stage, also set with small tables if there's no one performing.The entire vibe is like someone set a bar in a cozy little alcove in some exotic place far removed from New York City.

"Khush Amdeed!" the exotically beautiful woman behind the bar greets with a warm smile. "Welcome to the Voodoo Lounge." she gestures to one of the few empty seats at the bar, "Do not tell me." she holds up a finger indicating her desire for you to wait, "You do not want anything fancy or complicated, just a beer would do. Something imported. I have just the draft." the young Indian woman, dressed in a colorfully embroidered choli top and a matching orange bohemian skirt, grabs a large pilsner glass and fills it from one of the many taps that line the bar. "There you go azeez." she sets the tall glass of foaming amber liquid in front of you, then makes a sweeping gesture to the stage, "Please enjoy the show"
On the stage a jazz quartet begins to play and a lovely woman, wearing a tight fitting crimson dress and a voice that brings to mind Billie Holiday begins to croon a soothing tune.

Voodoo Lounge Regulars


There are a variety of beverages available both in the alcoholic and non-alcoholic, but the closest thing to wine there is Mead, so its best not to ask for a Cabernet, Pinot Noir or any of those other main stream wines.

Hours: Sun - Thurs 12:00 pm - 12:00 am - Fri & Sat 12:00 pm - 3:00 am
