The Owl Bar
Take all of your convictions about what constitutes a "hotel bar" and throw them out the window. A few steps into The Owl Bar, located inside the historic Belvedere, and you’ll find an eclectic bar decked with an owl insignia, where Journey is played and pizza & fried pickles are cranked out. They’ve been a reliable nightlife destination for drinks since opening in 1903. This includes Prohibition, when the owl’s blinking eyes signified a shipment of booze had made it and the feds were nowhere in sight. The bar's 18 draughts are interesting, and the cocktails are split between old-school and new-school (and top out at $12). Before bouncing, head up to the hotel’s 13th Floor for a drink with a view.
