Chelsea / Flatiron, New York –
Spanning the lobby of the Ace Hotel and connected to the Breslin Dining Room, the Lobby Bar is a lively but soothing sanctuary that draws everyone from international hotel guests to local hipsters.
A rustic décor featuring taxidermy, a gigantic American flag, and dark wood details combines with cozy touches like throw pillows, lap blankets, and desk lamps to create a warm and homey vibe for the sociable business types and travelers who settle in on plush red couches and tartan-print arm chairs for after-work drinks and low-key conversation.
The chatty vintage-shirt set tends to hang out at the classic wooden bar in back or at the high tables where they can take advantage of the outlets and wireless connectivity during the day, while privileged creative types and groups of young professionals stop in to chat and flirt on the large communal sofas for some postprandial drinks at night.
Though not a typical full night’s destination, The Lobby Bar offers a laid-back vibe and enough inventive cocktails to make it the perfect place to kick back and relax with friends before moving on to higher-energy haunts.
If you’re looking for a totally different kind of meal, have your drinks at the bar and then settle in at the Breslin Dining Room for the famous suckling pig dinner. For just $65/person, you and seven or more of your friends can feast on an entire roast pig!
