This tavern-style bar tucked within the chic NoMad Hotel in Manhattan’s NoMad neighborhood channels a classic New York City. The bar program, curated by award-winning bar director Leo Robitschek, features classic cocktails, large-format drinks, rare spirits, wines and beers, which have made this into a must-visit drinks destination. The bi-level bar is run by the team who is responsible for Michelin-starred restaurant Eleven Madison Park (continuously voted one of the best restaurants in the world). The NoMad Bar also serves elegant, American-style pub food, such as crudité with pine nut tahini, prawn cocktails and bay scallops and cavatelli with roasted vegetables. All the mixologists are extremely knowledgeable about spirits, so even if you’re not a cocktail or spirits connoisseur, they can help you find the perfect tipple. Visit during lunchtime, cozied into one of the bar’s chic leather banquets, or sidle up to the bar at happy hour. The dimly lit bar is packed at all hours of the night.
