  • The extensive cocktail list, executed by a literal assembly line of bartenders, is made of a small collection of classics as well as over 30 of their own selections, all overseen by Leo Robitschek.
  • Go up the spiral staircase. Take a photo and then ask for permission.
  • OH: "this place is like the ace hotel lobby for adults"
  • "Start me up" is the way to go!
  • To find the restroom, you must go through the lobby, down a Super Mario warp pipe, bribe the Orc to pass, go through the double doors, defeat Bowser, then descend down a spiraling staircase.
  • Order an off-the-menu Matchlock because it's the bomb: bourbon, rum, grapefruit, vanilla, mint, and then some. It's refreshing, but stiff, and I never wanted it to end.
  • This stunning bar has expertly crafted cocktails, and has become one of our favorite hotel bars to visit. Let the hostess know to reserve you a table in the library - it's first come first served.
  • Iced coffee and sweetbread for the win.
  • Start with the Start Me Up!
  • Great place to get some work done while enjoying great coffee and pastries. The cocktails are great too I you're feeling frisky.
  • Check out the books. You might find a surprise.
  • Perfect ambiance with a well organized menu to match - light spirits or dark spirits, they're all delicious.
  • If the bar is too crowded, try snagging a seat at the adjoining Library, a room adorned with plush seating and books and an antique spiral staircase from France.
  • gr8 spot 4 a mtg in the morning + they have intelligentsia
  • Add this of places to meet for drinks in the Flatiron Area
  • Try the Hairtrigger and the Satan's Circus
  • @Coverpay would be good here since service is a bit inattentive
  • An old fashioned.
  • Best desserts!!!
  • This magnificent 3,500 expertly curated tomes. Nab a cocktail at the bar and look through two floors worth of books, accessible by a spiral staircase. Titles cover medieval history to Audrey Hepburn.
