The like-minded brains behind El Dorado and Neighborhood have teamed up to create an incredibly unique and under-the-radar lounge in the East Village dubbed Noble Experiment.

Nathan Stanton of El Dorado and Arsalun Tafazoli of Neighborhood joined forces to share their passion for organic and abstract mixology with local enthusiasts in an elegant and refined haven. Noble Experiment's custom cocktail concoctions make an effort to tweak your tastebuds and, if they weren’t already before, turn their guests in full-fledged mixed drink masters.
