Swift Bar is one of the best bars to have opened in ages in Soho. Aside from the easy-to-find location that means you won’t get lost looking for Lexington Street again, the drinks and easygoing vibe are difficult to match, even in this part of town. At street level, there’s a shiny Art Deco-style bar that’s good for grabbing a beer or sipping martinis, while downstairs there’s a moody whiskey bar with red booths and basement vibes aplenty. Hit it for a drink before dinner or a date, or for a nightcap when you want to keep feeling good.

Bob Bob Ricard
Bob Bob Ricard is an excellent place to drink champagne and people watch. The French/Russian food is good, and the room is over the top lush.
