Party Earth Silver Lining Review

The Scene

Silver Lining in Tribeca is a classy NYC jazz club/mixology spot (& sister bar to Little Branch). Catch some riffs with your rye with Party Earth New York.

It’s doubtful any of the well-dressed patrons who frequent Silver Lining were around during the roaring 20s, unless a mix of artisan cocktails and artful jazz is the secret to the fountain of youth.

Still, after descending the long flight of stairs to this subterranean lounge, sophisticated modern-day minglers invariably feel a bit of a time warp amid the tiny linen-covered tables, candlelit white leather booths, and retro-dressed staff.

Historically, jazz clubs were rambunctious affairs, and though the cloud of cigarette smoke from the bygone era is missing, the venue’s ninety-year-old cash registers and rousing cacophony of conversation help spark that old energy.

Older suited veterans sip potent libations at the expansive oak wood bar, chatting with their neighbor about the vintage portraits, antique clocks, and old-school radios that adorn the exposed brick walls, while couples on first dates get a little closer over small plates like mussels and charcuterie.

There’s no stage, so jazz acts perform nightly around a grand piano set to one side of the single room, usually at a volume that ensures the boisterous clientele can continue chatting over Brown Derbys and Rum Bucks.

Whether it’s a mixology spot with live jazz or a jazz club for demanding drinkers is a matter of opinion, but Silver Lining is one of the few places in town where the cocktails are as finely crafted as the side-slipping riffs.

Tip from Jonah:

Silver Lining’s sister establishment is the mixology hotspot Little Branch, and you can expect the same dedication behind the bar here. If nothing on the drinks list piques your interest or if you’re feeling adventurous, be sure to ask for the Bartender’s Choice.

I found the upside to the Financial District. It's appropriately titled, Silver Lining. Descend down the stairs into the 1920s. While I was not fortunate enough to be there when a jazz band was playing, I can only imagine how chic it must feel. Tiny tables clothed in white face the main stage. A lovely bar is situated in the back and there are bigger booths to accompany larger parties; though not too large - think four person seating. The cocktails are what we really got me about this place. It happened to be a cold night in October and they had Irish Coffees and Hot Toddys! Both of them were delicious and definitely added to the atmosphere. If you're in the area, this is a solid find.
