Profile

Stepping inside the massive Royalton lobby bar known as Forty Four may at first feel like an ocular overload. The chic space manages to combine modern, urban décor elements with Balinese wood touches. But the lounge does not rest on its visuals alone; a bar helmed by the so-called Cocktail Collective whips up some mean libations that contain organic ingredients, including the 44 Palmer($16), made from Woodford Reserve bourbon, house sweet tea, muddled lemon and Angoustra bitters. Even the simplest drinks like, say, a bourbon on the rocks are spiffed up with “artisanal ice” or two-square-inch hunks of ice that melt slower and won’t dilute your liquor. The bar also provides ample people watching while you sip your cocktail, attracting an all-ages crowd that includes everyone from Midtown businessmen to Pretty Young Things whose hemlines are as short as the hostesses’.
