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.

We wish there was a Daily Provisions on every corner, so that we would never be far from their excellent breakfast and lunch.
Gramercy Tavern is an incredible restaurant. But you already know that. The bar is the move you want to make here, and you want to make it often.
Simon & The Whale
Simon and The Whale is the main restaurant at the Freehand Hotel, and it’s the sort of place where you can eat great food and run into an ex.
Suggested by our writers
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.
The NoMad Bar
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.
