No SoHo boutique hotel worth its location is complete without a sleek, subdued, dimly lit lounge where it's hard to tell who's more glamorous: the staff or the patrons. Thus the Gordon Bar, located in the understated Sixty hotel. The room has a modern Deco feel: leather club chairs, throw pillows, streamlined ottomans-all made especially cozy by the large, candlelit, marble fireplace in the corner. It's best experienced on weekday nights-look for regular hotel visitors like Kirsten Dunst while sipping divine cocktails like the $16 lychee martini.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
