The hunting lodge takes on a veneer of Old World luxury at the Bowery Hotel’s lobby lounge, where sumptuous velvet sofas in rose and olive tones are juxtaposed against lantern lighting, a fireplace, and a spindly collection of antlers. Everyone here seems to be in their element; animated conversation (fueled by spiced cocktails and fine Scotches) distracts attention from nifty touches like curiosity cabinets, a mural of historic New York, and looming tapestries.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Go chic casual with a blouse, stylish jeans, fancy flats, and funky jewelry.
GO HERE WITH
A group of friends; clients or colleagues; significant other - to take in the romantic digs; a date - for post-dinner imbibing
Groups of hotel guests and 30-something professionals, mixed with beautiful and glamorous out-of-towners.
WHY WE LIKE IT
For surrounds this swank and semi-exclusive, the bartenders and accompanying staff are surprisingly friendly and gracious–refreshing after the attitude often found at bars of similar caliber.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
There is a fabulous mosaic-tiled back patio attached to the space, but it is strictly reserved for hotel guests only (unless you can figure out a way to successfully beg or bribe the doorstaff).
GOOD TO KNOW
Designed by Eric Goode and Sean MacPherson, the masterminds behind the Maritime Hotel, Waverly Inn, and La Bottega.
