Canela Lounge, the hip Queens bar is something to check out if you're into live DJ spinning, themed nights and drink specials. The self-proclaimed 'best cocktail' bar mainly caters to the hip-hop and R&B loving crowd, but that's not to say that you wont hear any of the famous drunken American clichés on Karaoke night. The whole place has a sexy vibe to it, and the people at the door expect patrons to dress the part. So ladies, get out your Manolos, and gents should save the sweat gear and sneakers for the gym. Canela always has a drinks special on offer, however, sometimes they tend to be a bit watered down. So plan on drinking plenty or paying full price for something a little bit more worthwhile. Sometimes a cover, but if you get there early enough you can scrap it at the door.
