NYC Hotel Bars Overview

Grand Bar at Soho Grand Hotel - Hotel Bar | Lounge in NYC

Okay, so it’s not actually the city that NEVER sleeps, but if you’re in town looking to party what better place to do it than at one of the many great New York hotel bars? There are a lot – A LOT – to choose from, but of course just because you have a bar that happens to be in a hotel does not automatically make it a NYC hotel bar worth visiting.

Great hotel bars in New York attract people who actually live in the city, not just hotel guests, and thankfully there are several spots in this bustling metropolis that do just that. On the high-end, you really can’t go wrong with the Gansevoort Park Avenue Rooftop, where fashionable patrons take in unobstructed views of the Empire State Building through massive floor-to-ceiling windows as they relax on suede sofas and sling back bottles of champagne.

Kastel is another must for the trendy set, although with its austere unmarked entrance on the side of the Trump SoHo Hotel, patrons trying to find this upscale New York hotel bar would do better to look for the line of fashionable models and corporate types having their names crossed off the guest list at the door.

From Rose Bar in the Gramercy Park Hotel to Bar Seven Five in the Andaz Hotel to the glitzy Jane Ballroom in the Jane Hotel in West Village, New York hotel bars keep guests and longtime residents alike happy to check in.
