From the polished bar with its woven leather banquettes to the comfortably plush and luxuriously spacious salon with its smart green leather wing chairs, the design of this sleek space is undeniably posh, with a hot clientele to match. Floor to ceiling windows overlook Broadway, perfect for scoping city scenery while relaxing with a stiff drink.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Keep it casually dressy; we’d pair a low-key cocktail dress with stylish pumps.
GO HERE WITH
Clients or colleagues; significant other; a date
This spot is where the pretty come to play. Beautiful people aside, its overpriced drinks also attract the expected crowd of Amex-flashing expense accounters, affluent hotel guests, and stylish out-of-towners.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Its intimate environs and glamorous hotel digs make this spot a favorite Downtown hotspot for sophisticated socialites and well-coiffed diners.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The drinks may be delicious, but they’re not truly worthy of their price tags. Also, the service is often slow, even on quiet evenings.
GOOD TO KNOW
The bar and salon are set on the second floor of the SoHo Grand hotel. A DJ spins most nights of the week. Late-night service begins at 11:00pm daily.
