Meatpacking District

Ajna Bar

17 Little W. 12th St.
New York, NY, United States
TEL: (212) 647-7314

Located in the Meatpacking District, Ajna (nee Buddha) Bar serves cocktails, appetizers, entrees, and sushi in an opium den-like setting, complete with red chandeliers, cloth couches, and a bamboo tunnel decorated with Buddha statuettes. The walls feature gold murals and Chinese calligraphy. Jellyfish swim in tanks above the sushi bar while music pulsates. Executive chef (and Top Chef Season 3 winner) Hung Huynh's appetizers include duck spring rolls and tuna tartare; the Kobe meatloaf with Japanese barbecue sauce is a popular entree.

Insider Tip:

The lounge menu includes seasonal cocktails; if it's summer, try the mojito with a splash of coconut milk.
