This week’s fashionplate features another great new product from the Fall/Winter 2015 collection, a brown silk floral printed blouse that goes hand in hand with the newish tiki inspired cocktail spot in the West Village, The Happiest Hour. I adore tropical drinks and sipping on a tropical drink can definitely transport you momentarily from snowy winter weather to a tropical beach…well at least in your head. On a Thursday night around 7:30, the bar was packed and it was hard to find a seat as the place was packed, but after the Sugar Shack and a Fall from the Tree with bourbon and beers for my friend we were able to grab seats to sit and order some food. I got the grilled cheese which came with a little bowl of tomato soup for dunking and fries and the portions are perfect for a later last minute dinner or snack to line your stomach so you can sample all the delish cocktails. The grilled cheese was pretty solid and the fries were yummy too. And I was able to sample a Sazerac and a Daiquiri for dessert. The drinks were all interesting and yummy, it’s not some complex mixology spot but a chill place to get drinks a little beyond your vodka soda or wine.
Now on to the fashion part and OOTD deets of the fashionplate. I loved the tiki decor which is the BHH meets surfer kitsch, which I happen to like and thought it would be fun to rock our new brown silk floral blouse for a fun feel. The crowd here is mostly downtown twenty and thirtysomethings looking for a fun, cool environment. It’s definitely a mix of afterwork attire and casual West Village chic. Definitely a fun spot to check out and if you have time check out the lounge underneath.
