The only subterranean venue of Keith McNally's creations, Pravda's Russian streetlamp inspired lights offer an inviting glow for 9-5'ers hunting down Beluga caviar and one or two or seventy types of vodka. On the main level, club chairs, whitewashed chairs, and low, bathhouse ceilings envelope the dining floor while upstairs, barstools are perched against the bar, just steps away from the bathroom where the stainless steel stalls and chicken wire are just inspiring enough to encourage the vodka and caviar happy folk to loosen their ties and indulge in another round.
Pravda is located at 281 Lafayette Street between Prince and Houston. Open M-Sat at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday at 6:00 p.m. with varying hours. (212)226-4944.
