Tel: 212 473 7348's insider take:

This suave, romantic second floor bar seems a world away from the bustle of Houston Street below. Named after the famed British officers club in Rangoon, it interprets colonial Asia in a non-stereotypical way—the colors are muted earth tones, the back wall is designed to look like a Japanese temple altar, and you sit at marble topped French café tables. The dominant design feature, though, is a 36-foot-long spalted maple bar, and the dominant draw is Audrey Saunders, who made her name uptown at Bemelmans in the Carlyle. As co-owner of this bar, opened in 2005, she is now practicing her brand of mixology magic down here.
