Lounge / Bar
On the edge of Chinatown and Little Italy, Tropical shares a block with coin-op laundries and storefronts advertising bodywork. The spacious interior is a tiki cave that could have been designed by someone who equates the South Seas with the Jersey Shore. An outcropping of rock contains the bar. Here’s a forest of bamboo. Sluggish goldfish inhabit half-filled tanks. There is a three-table pool hall in the back, and an “exclusive” basement area opens in January. “Picture taking acid on a nautical trip,” was how Mr. Delzio described it.
