A sip of cold alcohol, a crunch of starch, and some fresh gossip can lift any spirit, ford any stream.

Meet me Uptown at the Monkey Bar for fabulous martinis and fries. They even have a dedicated martini section with nine offerings… right up my alley.

A classic for a reason. The Odeon is one of my go-to destinations in Tribeca whether it’s for working lunch or a casual meal with family and friends, you can find me there any given week. I’ve been frequenting the place for years and the pommes frites, martinis and atmosphere never disappoints.

The Swan Room
Located within the trendy 9 Orchard hotel, the Swan Room is the hotel bar worth going to the Lower East Side for. The crowd’s always fashionable and reservations are always in high demand. If you’re feeling up for something a bit more substantial, check out the hotel’s restaurant: Corner Bar.
