Ruined careers, shattered lives, broken dreams; in its day this place was accused of the works. Looking back, the scope of its influence is nothing short of epic. And now, you, the lost lambs of double happiness, where shall you congregate? Lest the flock be gobbled by the corporate wolves with their eyes on your golden fleece, let us go underground once more! Below the radar of the ogres of the Old World, we shall carve a new space of liberation, where anything can happen. Let us make the end of an epoch into a Happy Ending. Join me there, comrades, and we will once again relive that soft touch of happiness.

Nice and cozy underground bar, you'd definitely miss it if you blinked. I like to cozy up in one of the booths with some friends, but the dance floor is always fun too. The DJ's always play a great variety of music that always seems to tend to the mood of the crowd. Sometimes the crowd seems a little to "sceney" for my tastes, but it's not always like that. Drinks are good and relatively priced. Nice place to go to if you're bar hopping, probably not a place where you'd want to stay all night... sometimes it gets too crowded late in the evenings.

Pros: Nice Underground Feel

Cons: Quite small, can get crowded quickly

My husband and I went for the first time last night, I'd heard this was a fun hangout. We had a great time! Tasty unique cocktails, nice staff, VERY mysterious, dimly-lit and cozy atmosphere...not to be missed! We got there at 10PM on a Saturday night and scored seats at the bar, by 10:30 it was standing-room only so we're happy we got there when we did. The crowd was a good mix of people, thankfully missing the overly-drunken early 20-somethings that tend to spoil a mood by staggering and shouting. We will definitely be back, would like to try a weeknight as well. Great music and sound system too!

Pros: wonderful drinks, atmosphere and drinks

Cons: small space fills up fast

Double Happiness used to be a big hipster lounge, and still somewhat is. The decor is a fushion between authentic, historic chinese and downtown cool. Drinks are pretty low priced and people are pretty attractive. A good place to relax, dance and hang out.

I went here for a party, and that was a bad idea. No cell phone reception in the bar makes it hard to do the prerequisite party txt messaging you'll surely regret the next day. Also space is a little too small and noisy for a big birthday crowd. However, the bar itself is SPECTACULAR. Very nice atmosphere- dark and mysterious, lots of ambience. Speak-easy feel in the middle of Chinatown make this a pretty impressive hidden spot ideal for impressing the people you're hosting over the weekend. Drinks are amazing and unique. Place has a great late-late night vibe, with the small dance floor quickly becoming overcrowded and swarming with fun-loving and laidback people who just want to have a good time. Highly recommend it for smaller groups going out- definitely hit it up post-midnight.

Highly recommended if you have friends visiting. Great place to hang out and chit chat ... on weekdays. I get a bit too crowded in the weekend.

this formerly trendy place is now more of a has-been with a heavy B&T crowd and a somewhat unpleasant door policy. Warning: local Chinatown residents have also taken to throwing water on the heads of unsuspecting patrons who make too much noise while traipsing in and out to smoke!

We were taken here by a friend during our NYC vacation, and we liked it a lot. We went on a Monday night, so there were only a few people, but we had a good time. Drinks are reasonable, and the martinis are good. It's hard to miss on the street, so be cautious. It's really dark inside too, resembling a vampire's lair (?). Nice place to just chill with friends, drink and listen to music (mellow hip-hop the time we were there).

Cons: Small

If you blink you might miss it but you don't really want to do that! We went before it got crowded and the fun is trying to figure out what it used to be! You will see quite a cast of characters in this dimly lit, eerily romantic cubby hole. Don't think it would've been as much fun if it were packed but guess I'll have to go back and find out.

otherwise, its filled with too many losers to enjoy. lots of office types have turned it into their bar of choice to impress some entry-level girl at the company that they like but it really just shows that they're creepy and uncreative.

This is a really cozy place to chill out with a date or with your friends. I've done both. It's a very romantic and somewhat mysterious kind of place. It does get a bit crowded on the weedend but what place downtown doesn't. I usually go on a thursday when it's not crowded at all. The dj is very good on thursdays too.

This place is in a pretty shady area and everything around it is closed. Vary dark inside, couldn't see what you'd be talking to. It woulda been a nice place if it wasn't so damn packed! I felt like I was crammed in a frat house and being in a basement, air wasn't circulating and it was hot as sh*t!

This is a great place for a date! Good atmosphere - kind of dark with lots of good crevices for you & your date to sit & get to know each other, but still overall a hoppin' place, so its also fun to people watch. The place has still got it!

The place was packed, but all the stops were pulled out to accomodate our large(7) group. We had a great table to people watch(always the best spectator sport in nyc!)and have some tasty cocktails....i'm goin' back!

When I was there a few Sats ago - I walked out 10 lbs lighter - the place was smoky and hot and crowded.
The dingy set up left much to be desired.
