Double Happiness (or Dub Hap
as my friends and I have started calling it for short) is a small lounge/bar in SoHo
. Its at 173 Mott St.
, which is on the corner of Mott and Broome down in the Chinatown
area of SoHo. The lounge itself is down in the basement of the building and is has a very dark feeling. There are tables lining the walls of the room and plenty of space in the middle for dancing to the live-DJ spun tracks of mostly trip-hop
, and drum and bass
The coolest thing about the bar, however (aside from the fact that they don't usually card at the door, if you arrive early enough (only 7 more months)), is that I've heard the rumor that the bar has a pretty varied history, including a speakeasy
during the years of prohibition
menu is nothing to be sneezed at, either.
All in all, a very good bar in a convinient location, with an excellent ambiance. I highly recommend it for any night of the week, but it gets really busy on friday and saturday nights, so be forewarned.
