This meatpacking district lounge has a minimalist look, with exposed brick and cinder-block walls imported from Haiti; its owners’ Haitian background also shows in photos of the island country on the walls. It has soaring 20-foot ceilings, rosewood floors, shiny red cocktail tables, and brown leather booths. The space holds 140 for a seated event or 490 for a reception.
