SUBWAY59th St.-Columbus Cir. (1, A, B, C, D)
Start with tailored leather seating surrounding a sparkling bar. Add walls of gold drapery, low orange-toned lighting, intimate nooks, and waitresses in silk kimono tops delivering glittering drinks to prosperous patrons…and the scene simply smolders. The views over Columbus Circle, while not as expansive as those of the neighboring Lobby Lounge, are fantastic.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Opt for the smart chic ensemble in your wardrobe: something like a low-slung sleeveless top, shoulder-covering shawl or cardi, flattering skirt, and trendy boots or heels.
GO HERE WITH
A group of friends; significant other; a date - for a swanky night out
Splurging stylish scene lovers, hotel guests, and post-Asiate dinner dates.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The crowd is well heeled, the scene is tastefully risqué, and the air of exclusivity is appealing.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
It’s a little small; table seats are coveted and hard to come by without a reservation.
GOOD TO KNOW
In addition to its many cocktails, the bar also serves up a selection of appetizers and small plates.
