The walls and ceilings of this spacious, candlelit bar near the Stock Exchange are as bronze as well-aged Scotch. In the back, past the long mirrors and the granite animal friezes, bottle after bottle of the good stuff lies encased behind blue-lit glass: Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Château Gruard Larose, Château Cheval Blanc, with wines dating back as far as 1945. And while there is a certain snobbery to this whole display, just as there is in the fact that an ostentatiously beautiful woman stands ready at the door to take your coat, Vintry doesn’t exude the aura of downtown’s frenetic scenesterism. Leave your loud voice on the trading floor. People come here to mellow out.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
