There are plenty of things you should keep on the DLKe$ha on your iPod, Shahs of Sunset on your DVR but birthday parties aren't to be downplayed, especially in NYC. Don't be thrown off by the name, The DL throws a party that is anything but low-key, all the while steering clear of pretension.
Delancey & Ludlow, or The DL for short, is a premier birthday party venue located on the Lower East Side. The DL features three levels ready for celebration: The 1st floor houses a decadent bar with beautiful chandeliers and leather accents, followed by the 2nd floors RedRoom, which is as sultry as it sounds. Add to that a top 3rd floor complete with retractable roof, outdoor patio, lounge seating, and spectacular views of the Williamsburg Bridge, and you probably wont even need those Jameson shots to get your feet moving (but its your birthday, so take them anyway). Of course, you can count on The DL for great DJs as well, ensuring your party gets down from the get-go.
Dinner on Ludlow, The DLs attached restaurant, serves up foodie fare thats not to be missed. Munch on some Parmesan truffle fries or foie gras terrine, and move on to a perfectly cooked strip steak, bone-in ribeye, or let the chef decide with The Roast, a daily special of braises, roasts, or stews. Finish it off with the lemon semifreddo with olive oil cake or salted caramel chocolate tart, and wash it all down with plenty of cocktails from the Manhattan on Ludlow (Rittenhouse Rye, Carpano Antica, Tuaca, Charry Bark Vanilla Bitters) to the Hipsters Blood (Scotch, Cherry Heering, Carpano Antica, blood orange juice), The DL most certainly has you covered in the booze department.
The DL doesn't rely on gimmicks or odd niche themes, instead focusing on a beautiful space, an enlightened menu, and damn good cocktails to take your birthday party to the next level. Refreshingly free of the posturing some New York clubs flaunt, The DL throws a hell of a party thats simple, stylish, and classic NYC.
