The Jane Hotel’s Ballroom wears its exclusive airs with pride: The storied boîte, updated by Waverly Inn vet Sean MacPherson, packs a tough door during peak hours. The space is impressive, blessed with both titanic dimensions and old-world ambience. The design, too, is lavish: There are antique area rugs, a sea of wing chairs, a grand fireplace, a bevy of stuffed critters, a decaying disco ball, and enormous, velvet-draped windows. A balcony offers a view at the humming masses below. On the drinks menu are ambitiously named specialty cocktails (such as the Punjab), wines by the glass, beer imports from Belgium and Singapore, and good old Budweiser.
