Just inside the unmarked entrance of this fancy hotel in the Met Life Tower, there’s a very nice and very mellow lobby bar. There are couches, chairs, some low coffee tables, and relaxed/upscale vibes. If you want to feel like a well-off business traveler or Christian Grey on a low-key night, this is the place. It’s quiet, discreet, and the cocktails are good. Linger with a drink, and if you’re hungry they do some small plates from the same kitchen as Clocktower.
