I recently had the pleasure of doing a cocktail tasting at The Bar inside The Four Seasons Hotel New York, located in Midtown East – 57th between Madison and Park. You can also enter on 58th (and this will put you closer to The Bar upon entry).
This one isn’t on the menu — but I’ve been told that it’s an insider favorite and regulars know that the bartender will always be happy to make it upon order. It’s a Strawberry Mojito (and hands down the best I’ve had in recent memory).
Wondering when to go? I’d recommend either happy hour (single ladies! I hear there are a lot of professional men in the house at this time) or right before dinner. You’ll find a lively crowd during either time frame. If you’re looking for a quieter atmosphere, go when I did, around lunchtime. The Bar is very close to the flagship Bloomingdales at 59th & Lexington (and a lot of other stores, too) so you can come here for a quick cocktail break from shopping.
Now, a quick note about the outfit: you know how I love both high AND low brands, and this outfit is a true testament to making fashion choices that are easy on the wallet. I’m going for a mod look here, with a graphic print shift dress from JCPenney (seriously — less than $5o) and the booties are Nine West. Hope you’re a little inspired ;)
