Shopping for me is always stressful. I never like anything I see and when I do finally buy something I have buyers regret immediately. So when shopping in Soho it's always important for me to have a spot to chill out and regroup; Pera is just that place. Located right on Thompson St. this airy Mediterranean bar and restaurant has just what I'm looking for- relaxed cushy seating, delicious cocktails and a fantastic happy hour.
I highly suggest the Blood Orange Martini made with vodka, Dom Benedictine and blood orange puree along with a mezze from their bar menu. I had skipped lunch my last visit so the hearty Lamb Sliders with crispy shoestring fries were my savior.
Happy Hour at Pera runs from 3:00 -7:00 each day with $6 specials on cocktails, wine, draft beer and mezze.
