This lounge at the Paramount Hotel clearly takes its design cues from Old Hollywood; the space is awash in black and red, with giant photographs of Golden Age stars like Clark Gable and Gary Cooper to help get you in the mood. Though the bar’s website boasts of celebrity sightings, on an average night, you’re more likely to find a mix of the after work crowd and hotel guests sipping $14 cocktails that, while not cheap, are similarly priced to other nearby spots and contain premium ingredients. Try the Ginger Gimlet (gin, ginger syrup, lime juice) or the Red Prosecco (Prosecco, Aperol, cointreau)r. Small bites include beef satay ($14) and tuna tartar ($18).
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
