The George Washington Bar


23 Lexington Ave, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

The Freehand Hotel has a few different venues. There’s the main dining space Simon & The Whale on the ground floor, and, up a flight of stairs, you’ll find Studio (an all-day restaurant), as well as The George Washington Bar. This last place is just a small room with some couches, rugs, and chandeliers - and, when you’re here, it feels like you’re at a cocktail party in the home of a person who sometimes attends fashion week. You don’t really have to dress up to come here, although you should definitely look presentable, as there’s a decent chance you’ll see someone you know through some form of social media.

The NoMad Bar review image

Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.

Is the Nomad still a big deal? It depends on how you do it.

Fedora review image

Fedora is in the basement of a townhouse in the West Village, and it feels like a dinner party in a speakeasy that your friends happen to own.
