Tucked inside the Andaz Wall Street Hotel, Bar Seven Five caters to guests and groups of young finance types just off the clock. While the space is ample-sized, it feels even larger thanks to the David Rockwell design of sparse, black-lacquered tables, each with a set of exposed gold bulbs hanging above. The lack of an actual bar—instead, the booze is displayed on the tables—furthers the compartmentalized feel. It’s the service that is the key component here, though; even with a lively, bustling crowd, there always seems to be extra staff roaming. Drinks are brought tableside, shaken and poured from a server’s cart. The menu includes specialty cocktails like the 75 Smash (applejack, mint, lemon juice, maple syrup), traditional concoctions, and locavore drafts. The “Hudson Valley–inspired” restaurant Wall and Water is right up the stairs, but if it’s only a bite you’re after, small plates of charcuterie, cheeses, and pickled veggies, served in mason jars, are available.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
