Happy Ending's former life was an erotic massage parlor and has been transformed into a club with two floors, each with its own feel. The street level pays homage to the lounge ideal of the days of Frank Sinatra. Set-in red velvet booths offer just the right amount of privacy to engage in a little intimacy, but are public enough to hold court among an endearing crowd. Downstairs kitsch reigns among the original tiling and waist height shower heads, the sauna rooms turned private party coves and the original etched glass swan and naked female mirror. All combine for an intimate, almost indecent atmosphere that harkens back to a pre-Giuliani New York with a touch of 1960s Las Vegas. A diverse clientele drawn by the distinctive style, consistently good music and an over-abundance of sex appeal from their fellow patrons drink in the atmosphere nightly.
