The Public is a hotel on the Lower East Side, and it feels like it should be in the Meatpacking Spot. It’s big and sleek, and the lobby bar looks like a fancy, modern living room where you aren’t supposed to touch anything. The rooftop is more casual and lively, but you also have to get past a doorman in order to get there. And, on weekends, this probably won’t be easy - but if you manage to do so, you can enjoy the views. They’re excellent.
