Beauty & Essex | Located on the Lower East Side, this glamorous find is a pawn shop, lounge, and restaurant. With the entrance, a pawn shop, with a bunch of guitars and memorabilia leading to a hidden door into a nightlife emporium. Beauty & Essex is two levels with one the lounge portion and one the restaurant... side note.. they offer free champagne in the ladies restroom. YES! It's relatively easy to get in but if you don't want to wait outside we recommend making a reservation.
