The atmosphere at Mark's can best be described as a Dynasty casting call held in an Ethan Allen showroom. Distinguished grays chomp cigars and burnished dowagers perch uncomfortably on chintz sofas, under the glare of lights bright enough to melt pancake makeup. Don't make a scene by looking for an actual bar (there isn't one). Just sit up straight, extend your pinkie and keep your (polite) conversation hushed lest you disturb fellow patrons' serene enjoyment of the piped-in Muzak. There's nothing wrong with needing a fix of old-money luxury, but there are plenty of places to get it where you won't feel just plain old.

Extra

Best only-in-New-York moment: An over-rouged sixtysomething regular, wearing full-length mink and Yoko Ono shades in the daytime, wanders in with her younger gentleman friend and orders Chardonnay... mixed with ginger ale.
