I am sure you know I love Chelsea New York. Chelsea is one of my new favorite places to hang out, the atmosphere is absolutely chic and sophisticated. I recently went to a restaurant in Chelsea with few friends and had a wonderful time at The Park.
The Park is a restaurant in 10th Ave, between 18 and 19th street. I had a Mojito and I was impressed. The bar is very elegant and the bartender was very friendly.
Happy Hour is a huge event at The Park. They have really great cocktails and the wines I tried were great.
The restaurant is divided up in two sections. You have the inside which looks like a regular restaurant. By regular, I mean classic and luxurious. There is a tree in the middle of the restaurant adding a relaxed aura. The Japanese lamps hanging from the ceiling are very zen.
Then you go “outside” to the park. Half of the restaurant is not actually outside. The set up looks like you are having dinner in the middle of a very luxurious park. They have lights decorating the trees and have birds signing during your dinner.
When I went, it was snowing outside. However the Park was so warm and they even had a living room setting next to the bar with a fireplace. Hence it was a busy but chill place to spend my afternoon with my friends.
