Boom Boom Room

A staple of NYC bar scene for years - officially named Top of the Standard (but not for us locals or should I say globals…). Immerse yourself into a scene of 50s New York with drink names inspired by aviation and outer space. Gorgeous views, stunning waiters, and plush seats - what could be better?

Baccarat Hotel Lounge

Beautiful midtown gem is reserved exclusively for fabulous encounters only. Wear your best shoes and cologne - you may meet that someone special (or three).

Beekman Hotel Lobby Bar

In the hotel of the year, this lobby bar takes jazz, service, and chilling seriously. Not a club, not a bar, but an institution of elegance and decadence in the extravagant renaissance revival chic style.

Employees Only

A West Village classic for the ages. Curvy bar and ultra-strong drinks will get you feeling naughty in this surprisingly loose and always fun neighborhood bar. Winner of Best Bar in the World many years in sequence and winner of best cocktail in Manhattan (try Amelia!). This spot employees bartenders for generations, sporting very honorable tattoos in shape of the establishment’s logo. Employees Only indeed. Regulars are regular. Food is to die (Bone Marrow poppers!).

Edition Hotel

Great drinks escape for any night of the week in the flatiron area. Great DJ, atmosphere, and lobby smells divine. Design and service are also superb. Try their Clocktower restaurant on the second floor.

Macao Trading Company

From the amazing owners of EO, Macao brings you a touch of Hong Kong, a touch of Macao, a touch of NY, and a whole load of drunken fun. The restaurant upstairs does a wonderful Asian menu and the secret downstairs club (only open Fridays & Saturdays) is all the rage.
