The feel of Buddakan's is very chic and romantic. Down to the last detail of surroundings made you feel like you were in a different world. I started with the Tranquility mixed drink and it was fantastic and refreshing. Very unique to match the decor...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
