Despite the SoHo address and name taken from a William S. Burroughs novel, Naked Lunch is not at all pretentious. Though the crowd is good-looking, well-dressed and partial to cucumber mojitos, the girls (and guys) just wanna have fun. To that end, Naked Lunch is a favorite among birthday and bachelorette party revelers who sing along to the DJ's familiar mix of 80s, 90s, and today's top 40 hits in the candlelit front room. When the weather's warm, oversized front windows let the party spill out on the street, beckoning passersby to join in the fun.
