A handsome staff of buttoned-down, Kenneth Cole-clad men man the magnificent oak bar at one of New York's most romantic cocktail dens. The 30-plus business-casual crowd is a balanced mix of out-of-towners, writers, bankers and haute-couture cuties looking for a free drink. Try the traditional Whiskey Sour, but regardless of what you're drinking the menu offers equally delectable options for soaking it up. Plush seating, thick curtains and filtered lights (just bright enough for you to see your sky-high bill) provide an ideal setting should you wish to pursue a more intimate encounter.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
