    We'll be livening up this lay back coffee house/lounge and taking everyone on a trip down to New Orleans with two hot sets starting at 9PM. Tea Lounge's hangar-esque space is densely populated with creative types grateful for a kindly priced cup of coffee. Once the kiddies are tucked in, and folks start opting for the shot of Bailey's or clever house booze 'n' chai concoctions, the mood shimmies down to a low-level pickup tone. The eponymous brews number in the dozens, and the full bar boasts an admirable selection of wines as well as the harder stuff. Visit www.tealounge.com Directions: Subway - Q to 7th Ave, 2/3 to Grand Army Plaza or M/R to Union St.
