Look Good:
The bar is actually located down Harlem Place Alley. Look for the bouncer outside.

Plus Size Wedding Dress:
Slim women can wear on their wedding day any kind of wedding dress: long, short, strapless or not. On the other side, ladies that have some extra weight must be very careful with what they wear on that special day. They must always be careful to select a dress that hides the fat and highlights their qualities. These kinds of dresses are usually called plus size wedding dresses.

"Stepping back in time":
Great place to go for a drink. Lines not too long to get in. Would recommend for a date night.

"Warp through time" as you descend back-alley stairs into this "stunning" "Steampunk" "speakeasy" where "flapper girls" serve absinthe cocktails (and other "stellar" craft concoctions) while "smoldering" burlesque dancers and "old-timey" musicians perform for a "hip, pretty" crowd; you assuredly "pay for the ambiance" (tables are $50 a head on weekends), but it's "worth the money" to lounge in...

The Edison, an Art Deco–inspired cocktail spot housed in a revamped power plant, is what the Machine Age might have been if there were better couches back then. You can sit inside an old boiler, hang out between Frankenstein-lab-like gauges and generally feel like Edison himself amid inventive nooks and crannies. It's cavernous (in the sense that it's both big and subterranean) but there are...
