The East Village is full of secrets. And one worth celebrating is The Body Shop—the speakeasy located at 242 E 10th St.

An inked and leather-clad crowd had the place buzzing. All good vibes here. With neon-lit drums that serve as tables, the hidden gem is at the back of Pinks. It comfortably seats fourteen people on burgundy leather benches.

Lighting that sets the mood right, the badass smoke machine and retro pin-up photos are what make The Body Shop a must see. Stop by and enjoy direct access to the bartenders via the black phone near the entrance.

Order anything from Pinks’ menu including the T-bird Tacos or any of the Kustom Kocktails. It wouldn’t hurt to try the Tail Pipe or two.

If you’ve never drank liquid smoke, The Body Shop is a good place for firsts. Head for the unmarked wooden door behind the bar. Bottoms up and #Owntheday, party people.
