I was invited to The London Bar at The London NYC hotel last week to try cocktails from their “Stylish Sips” menu. The London NYC was the Preferred Hotel of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, so it was only fitting that they offered a special, runway-inspired cocktail list throughout the month of February.
Even though MBFW had just wrapped up the week before, there was no shortage of chic and fashionable clientele at the sexy, luxurious bar. It’s the type of place where you could bump into a celeb at any moment, but somehow manages to pull off being welcoming and unpretentious. It’s the type of place that’s super swanky, but you can have round after round of perfectly-crafted cocktails, great conversation — and completely lose track of time. The night I went, it was the perfect escape from the work week on a cold night in NYC.
It was hard for me to choose from the menu, but I decided on the Glamazon and The Red Carpet.
The London Red Carpet
Fresh raspberries, Stoli Vodka, blood orange and lime juices, agave nectar, topped with Thai chili pepper-infused oil
Pisco 100, Solerno Blood Orange Liquor, Cointreau, St Germain, fresh lime juice
I love the swanky, Sex and the City vibe, great service and perfect drinks. Stylish Sips is over at the end of the month, but The London Bar’s signature cocktails, like The London Bloom and Pink Panther, look incredible and they also have an amazing wine list. This is a must-do for NYC.
