Walk down the steps to Peachy’s, a cocktail bar underneath Chinese Tuxedo, and you’ll see a pink neon sign that says, “no photos, no fighting.” The latter is simple enough, but expecting people not to take pictures when they’re surrounded by hanging flowers, neon signs, and cocktails served in Buddha-shaped mugs might be asking a little too much. But this isn’t just a place to celebrate your Midwestern cousin’s 22nd birthday. This Chinatown spot has very good cocktails and lots of seating in red leather booths, and when everyone starts roaming around at 10 or 11pm, you can strike up a conversation with someone who’s trying to be sneaky about taking pictures of the wallpaper.
