The 20-year-old actor stopped off at his favorite places in the City. Paul shared about Angel’s Share, a bar inspired by speakeasies during Prohibition, saying, “You stumble through a door at this sushi-and-sake restaurant thinking it leads to the restroom, but little do people know, it opens into this old, 1950s-inspired speakeasy with mahogany wood and leather. I get off on that.”
He continued, “Apparently, there used to be swarms of these places during Prohibition, but they still exist, and Angelâ€™s Share was the first one that I found. Thereâ€™s PDT (113 St. Markâ€™s Place) below Crif Dogs. Thereâ€™s also The Back Room (102 Norfolk Street), the entrance to which looks like a gate that leads into an alleyway that says East Village Toy Company. They serve drinks in coffee cups and beer in brown paper bags. Iâ€™ve been going out in New York since I was 15 years old. As long as youâ€™re not a hot mess, most places in New York respect the youth. Plus, Iâ€™ve had many fake IDs over the years. My favorite was one on which Pennsylvania was spelled like ‘Peen-sylvania.’”
You can next see Paul on the big screen in Fame (opening September 25th) and on the small screen in Hard Times (premiering in 2010).
