The Folly is in a basement on Houston, and it’s very easy to walk by without noticing it. If you do make it inside, you’ll find a fun, dark place to hang out. It’s a nautical-themed bar, and they make some good cocktails. Bring a date, or for any other situation when you want to drink somewhere with minimal natural light.
