Have a coffee after dinner. You’re gonna need it.
Then simply stand up, take your date by the arm and head downstairs. Down a dark hallway, you’ll hear sounds of raucous revelry. Follow them.
That’s how you’ll find The Heath, a secretive Modern Age Cotton Club where glowing lamps dangle from the ceiling, couples canoodle in dark wooden booths and a lively dance party (affectionately known as "Hotbox") should be in full swing.
Onstage: Heathens — a jazzy, funky quintet providing dance-floor tunes.
At the bar: as many cocktails as you please. We recommend the tequila- and grapefruit-tinged “General’s Bullet.”
Cut a rug before adjourning to your reserved seat, easily booked online by those with an advance heads-up for via The Heath’s mailing list.
Et voila: you now have plans.
Nota bene: Signing up for The Heath’s mailer also earns you access to special ticketed events like Lady Antebellum’s recent album release party or Flight of the Conchords’ three-night rehearsal stint ahead of their upcoming tour.
