The 1930's style Hi-Life Restaurant & Lounge has been one of NYC’s most loved neighborhood restaurants since 1991. Our party planners will help you to customize the space and menu to suit your occasion and budget, for groups of 12-200. New York Magazine says "Downtown goes Uptown ... a great place to throw a party".
The Hi-Life Restaurant & Lounge space works well for a variety of party styles: cocktails & hors d'oeuvres, buffet dinner or brunch, and sit-down dinners. Our space can be reserved exclusively or divided appropriatly with private and semi-private spaces for a variety of group sizes, from 12-200.
Hi-Life's menu includes the "classics" such as: sliced Sirloin, Linguini Fra Diablo, Pasta Primavera, Clams Casino, Shrimp Cocktail, broiled California King Salmon and Lemon Chicken in white wine ... as well as the eclectic, such as: Morrocan Lamb Ka-bobs, traditional Pad Thai Noodles, steamed Shrimp Shumai, and expertly prepared Sushi & Sashimi from our Sushi/Raw Bar.
- The Restaurant Writes...
Hi-Life Restaurant & Lounge is one of the Upper Eastside’s most popular and longstanding neighborhood restaurants (est. 1993). Hi-Life's 1930's decor is the backdrop for restaurant & lounge classics like flame-grilled steaks and hamburgers, broiled and seared fresh fish specials, bountiful "Big Bowls" of pasta and entree salads, and last but not least a Sushi/Raw bar. (Hi-Life was the first NYC restaurant to install a traditional sushi bar in a non-Japanese restaurant setting in 1993. Expertly prepared sushi & sashimi at Hi-Life is a natural extension of the classic Raw Bar one might expect in our 1930's environment.)
Hi-Life also serves a "traditional Eastside brunch" that features fresh squeezed juices, complimentary blueberry muffins & cinnamon toast as well as a 2.95 brunch cocktail deal.
In the warmer months Hi-Life opens all the French doors along Second Avenue to provide an inviting "cafe society" experience.
