Above Allen

Although only on the seventh floor, Above Allen has a remarkable view that spans the low-rise apartment buildings of the Lower East Side to the Chrysler building in the far distance. Although the Thompson LES claims that this is a members' only venue, talk to the bouncer in the lobby. At off-peak times, getting in is not a problem; late on Fridays and Saturdays, you may have to wait and you may get turned away if you don't have the right kind of group. There are two patio areas on either side of the bar, which are crowded (but fun) when the weather is good.
