You don't go here for the warm & cosy atmosphere catered by a warm & fuzzy staff, at least not in this modern era. Nor do you go for the remarkable drinks (unlike Milk & Honey) or single "talent". You go here for the history, architecture, jazz & the dedication towards a diverse NYC neighborhood. They just don't build or maintain establishments such as the Lenox Lounge in the 21st Century. Too bad.
