Ora for a new era
Lulu and Vikram's Birthday Bash at Ora
Originally uploaded by lools.
Ora is a lovely Mediterranean restaurant and bar in the Flatiron/Gramercy Park neighbourhood. Harsha hosted a big birthday party for one of my high school buddies and me last night. It was a total blast.
The blue and orange walls made me feel right at home. The white marble top bar in the front of the restaurant gives the place a very hip feel. The dining area at the back of the restaurant is the perfect ambience for a mellow, romantic night out. The tables were cleared out and lots of space created for our private party though.
The den downstairs is cozy and just perfect for lounging around all night long. Ora has a license to serve hookahs which are a big attraction in Manhattan these days. Unlike other spots like Le Souk and Horus, you can only get apple and strawberry.
The party raged on till 4 a.m. when it actually was 5 a.m thanks to daylight savings. It was amazing how 7 hours just flew by. A big thanks to all of you who made the party so memorable!
