The Scene

Located in the Lenox Hotel and catering to the well-heeled and connected, City Bar is a one-room refuge that draws a clientele of attractive business and finance types, designers, and the media elite, who stop in on weeknights...

Located in the Lenox Hotel and catering to the well-heeled and connected, City Bar is a one-room refuge that draws a clientele of attractive business and finance types, designers, and the media elite, who stop in on weeknights to lounge on lavish leather sofas and chat over whiskey and cocktails.

A simple but elegant décor featuring gray leather patchwork walls bathed in the warm glow of sconces creates an intimate atmosphere for lingering over strawberry kiwi martinis, while a glistening bar showcasing an illuminated 1912 print of an upscale street scene provides more space for the sexy locals and hotel guests to get to know each other.

The action steps up on the weekends, especially in winter, when sophisticated professionals, good-looking couples, and groups of fashionable ladies are allowed to line up in the warm and welcoming Lenox lobby, waiting to be ushered into the swanky bar where the combination of top-shelf spirits, dim lighting, and an eclectic mix of classical and hip-hop creates an atmosphere ripe for romance.

Ideal for pre-dinner drinks with friends or a sexy weekend tryst, City Bar offers its guests an intimate spot that’s deliciously alluring.

Tip from Adriana:

It’s best to show up a bit early so you and your girlfriends can claim a sofa for your pre-club cocktails. You’ll definitely want to try the Willy Wonka – that’s chocolate vodka, Godiva liqueur, and white crème de cacao. Heavenly!
