No one does sleek, moody modernism quite like Jason Pomeranc and Stephen Brandman’s Thompson Hotels. Their latest downtown meet-up spot, Thompson LES, is heavy on the dark wood and leather, from the clublike lobby all the way up to the double-height penthouse. The highlight is the outdoor swimming pool with Gerard Malanga's filmstrip of Andy Warhol staring at you through the water.
