10 Hotels for Cocktail Connoisseurs
Great hotel bars attract greatness. Sir Winston Churchill was a regular of the American Bar in London’s Savoy. Ernest Hemingway found inspiration on a stool at the bar of the Ritz Paris. Today, the bar at the Chateau Marmont lures Hollywood starlets. These new or newly renovated hotels, whether by the beach in Jamaica or on bustling Regent Street in London, take their cocktails seriously. Book a room: if you overimbibe, bed is just an elevator ride away.

Tableside Cocktails at The NoMad Hotel, New York

Large arrow left

Daniel Humm and Will Guidara, the duo behind New York’s acclaimed Eleven Madison Park restaurant, have made this hotel a destination for discerning diners. A custom bar cart comes to the table with a drawer of ice cubes, recipe cards, mixers, artisanal bitters, and the bottle of your choice, so you can mix your own concoction.

French designer Jacques Garcia found inspiration in the Parisian flat of his youth for the look of the hotel. In the evenings, the two-tier mezzanine space just off the bar becomes a lounge where you’ll find more people drinking than reading.

From $395. 1170 Broadway, (212) 796-1500. This appeared in the May 2013 issue.
