Sneak Peek at Lilium, Opening Tonight at the W Union Square

Drink enough cocktails, and you might believe you're in a cave of lillies.

Hold your breath Monday-night partiers, because tonight Gerber Group opens Lilium in the former Underbar space beneath the W Union Square.Continuing the trend in literal naming, this one's meant to resemble a cave of wild lilies, an affect achieved with a curving lily sculpture fashioned from 4,000 pounds of steel. D.J.'s will spin a mix of classic and indie rock, which probably means the stuff you listened to in seventh grade (très vintage for the kids these days). There are specialty cocktails and expensive spirits for boozing purposes and a vaguely Mediterranean menu (flatbread, kebabs) for soaking it all up. See full menus below.
