- The Scene
The one-room bar attached to the hipified-Romanesque W Hotel-City Center is sleek, sexy and smart. Leather chairs and candlelit cubic tables set a cool tone; the music (mainly commercial R&B) isn't too loud, and what light there is in the dark space filters through the gauzy front window and the blue-tinted glass. The crowd dresses the lounge part.
Patient bartenders make stellar martinis and even better cosmopolitans (with real lime juice, as it should be). Dozens of whiskeys and a handful of wines backdrop the bar. All three of the hotel's bars are technically part of Whiskey Bar. The lobby (a.k.a. the Living Room) is appointed with more leather chairs, low tables, modern ceramics and light cubes. Getting a drink at the atrium bar can be tough on busy nights, so order from a leggy waitress in slinky black.
