BARRING A DISCREET SIGN, not much is left secret at Confidential. Catchy beats spill from this swanky sauce haus, beckoning A-listers to its velvet ropes. The urban loft turned Euro-lounge doesn’t claim to be different from—just better than—its counterparts. So don’t judge this club by its cover; Confidential offers more than pricy cocktails and eye candy.

VIBE: A diverse crowd of jet-setters mingles and moves to guest deejays, who spin everything from old-school funk to rock and house. The pounding playlist muffles conversation but creates an upbeat tempo perfect for people-watching.

DÉCOR: The black-and-white interior couples retro-chic styling with an almost-cliché modern minimalism, save some unique twists. These include white leatherette couches, exposed brick walls and celestial-tint lighting, all capturing passing stares through a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows.

EATS & DRINKS: The secret at Confidential is how it’s raised the bar in bar food with an internationally charged tapas menu cooked up by top Zagat-rated executive chef Chris Walsh. His creative fusion spirit also reaches behind the bar, where attractive mixologists craft specialty cocktails—like the watermelon mojito martini—designed to drown inhibitions.

MISCELLANY: Retreat to the lofty lounge for a more intimate endeavor away from the cramped main floor. Bottle service or not, open tables permit all guests upstairs. Loop these offerings with Confidential’s calendar of weekly events, and you’re sure to feel like an insider.
