Opened by two veterans of the West Village’s Little Branch, the subterranean Silver Lining is more of a bar with jazz than a traditional jazz bar—there’s neither a cover nor a minimum, tables aren’t jammed up against each other, and even though the sound is rich, the music doesn’t dominate the evening. (You can have a conversation.) There’s no sign, just a bouncer sitting in the vestibule. The bar is along the eastern wall, and the northern half of the room is tables. The vibe is Art Deco Yacht—love the wallpaper, padded bathroom doors, and cloth cocktail napkins—along with a dash of white New England cabinetry behind the bar and old family photos on the walls. A menu of small plates is available to go along with the artisanal cocktails. Note: There doesn’t appear to be a calendar or schedule.
