A popular bohemian bar in the centre of York, the Evil Eye Lounge is an assault on the senses. This unusual world of travel and mysticism is hidden behind the bar’s shop by day, only accessible via a tiny alley at night.
The colourful, wooden décor is influenced by Brazil, Haiti and Morocco, the delicious food is Asian and the cocktails are downright wacky, if a little dangerous. Dare to try the Blood From A Cat’s Face or Murder In A Hurricane concoctions, many have tried Shed Seven but few have survived.
Not feeling so adventurous? Beers, coffees, teas and soft drinks can all be sipped while lounging on a cosy four poster bed.
Ed. note: The print version of this article said the Evil Eye Lounge is in New York City, when in fact, it’s in York, UK. Thanks to our friends at the Tab for pointing that out. Oh, and if you are heading to the Big Apple sometime soon, we recommend the Le Poisson Rouge for its drinks, decks and daily happy hour. Have a safe flight!
