    Good ambiance and quality drinks. Come on Sunday or weekday nights to avoid the crowds.

    The books lining the walls are available to read at your leisure as you sip a cocktail by the fireplace. The bar is rarely busy. Who wants to drink in a big empty room with books? You, that’s who. Read more

    Hot apple cider cocktail hit the spot on a cold night.

    The Library is available only to guests of the hotel after 4pm. Check out the bar next door, NoMad Bar. Just as hip and posh. Very expensive drinks. Range is from $16 - $52 and over.

    You can get the entire NoMad bar menu at the library. Phenom spiked cider during the holidays. Love coming here for cozy mornings, afternoons, and/ or evenings.

    The book collection is eclectic and features sections on everything from The History of New York to Food and Drink. Raise a glass to luxury and literature while re-reading The Great Gatsby. Read more

    Cozy, chill atmosphere. Get there early if you want to get a seat, since they give first dibs to hotel guests.

    Best late night drink in (the world) NY. Start me up, old fashioned and sofas make it well worth the long wait. Try.

    Most quiet and enjoyable environment in town for an afternoon coffee or a quick business meeting. The room is impressive and the service is remarkable.

    If the bar is too crowded, try snagging a seat at the adjoining Library, a room adorned with plush seating and books and an antique spiral staircase from France.

    One of the coolest rooms in all of NYC. Bring your dates or your friends and lounge like a king. It's pricey though and it's only open to hotel guests after like 7pm.

    To find the restroom, you must go through the lobby, down a Super Mario warp pipe, bribe the Orc to pass, go through the double doors, defeat Bowser, then descend down a spiraling staircase.

    You can't get in past 4pm unless you're a guest at the hotel. Might try to wiggle your way in if there's space, but they're pretty strict with the rule and often full regardless.

    Order an off-the-menu Matchlock because it's the bomb: bourbon, rum, grapefruit, vanilla, mint, and then some. It's refreshing, but stiff, and I never wanted it to end.

    This combination bar/library is a cozy place to wile away the afternoon/evening. Like the older, more fancy schmancy cousin of the nearby Ace Hotel, the Library Bar is the perfect winter bar.

    The extensive cocktail list, executed by a literal assembly line of bartenders, is made of a small collection of classics as well as over 30 of their own selections, all overseen by Leo Robitschek.

    Put your name down for a table in the lounge on the left (if facing) of the bar, then have some well-prepared cocktails whilst waiting. They close it off if too busy so best to arrive earlier.
