Villard Bar and Lounge is a secret gem in the heart of midtown. Not many New Yorkers know that this place exists. The Villard's decor was modeled after the palaces of Napoleon Bonaparte, Queen Victoria and King Louis XIV. If you want to impress a date or a friend, take them here. C'est magnifique!

I asked the concierge at the Waldorf for a good lounge. His answer was immediately Villard. I was suprise by the beauty of the decor. Born in France, I am a regular at the Buddha Bar, Villa Barclay, Castel, etc...and what a Blast to see this gorgeous Bar/Lounge with Deep Red Velvet, Gold Molding and Antique Replica furniture. The music = Sophisticated Euro/Post modern/Chic beat. The drink are great and perfectly sized. Bring a date, specially if she's never beeen there.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
