If you’re planning a trip to NYC this summer, you’re probably making a list of the restaurants, bars, and clubs that you’re hoping to hit. We compiled a list of NYC hotspots that should definitely make the cut. Keep in mind that Dial 7 can drop you off in style, helping you make an incredible first impression.
The Top of the Standard
The meatpacking district’s premier boutique hotel, The Standard, stands out from neighboring buildings. It is an exceptionally thin skyscraper with a futuristic feel. The overall grandeur, however, reaches another level once you see the bar. Located on the 18th floor of the hotel, Top of the Standard comes with panoramic views of the NYC cityscape. The glass filled, bronze bathed environment encapsulates the fantastical glitz and extravagance of the roaring twenties.
Death & Co.
Opened in 2007, Death & Co. has become one of the most hyped speakeasies in the city, earning the award for Best American Cocktail Bar and World’s Best Cocktail Menu at the Cocktail Spirited Awards in 2010. Dark wooden panels, crystal fixtures, and dim lighting come together to create a raw and sophisticated atmosphere at Death & Co. If you’re looking for impeccably crafted mixed drinks in an intimate and thriving cocktail lounge, this is your destination.
Raines Law Room
Raines Law Room appeals to its loyal patrons through the delivery of divinely mixed drinks in a romantic atmosphere that conjures exquisite, old world feels. The underground lounge features soft lighting, velvet curtains, plush couches, and antique furnishings. It is the perfect place to experience a cozy evening of conversation and upscale drinks.
The Rose Bar
We couldn’t publish a list of upscale bars in NYC without including The Rose Bar. Tucked inside of the Gramercy Hotel, the first thing you’ll notice at this exclusive lounge is the stunning and stately limestone fireplace beneath a sprawling candle chandelier. These fixtures pretty much summarize the rest of its ambiance: decadent, luxurious, warm. If you’re looking for a place that will leave you feeling like a million bucks, put this on your list.
