Hotel Bar

2014 Winner: Highball Lounge

We love a bar that boasts a serious cocktail program—but doesn’t take itself too seriously. This lounge at Nine Zero Hotel has industry cred thanks to creative, aromatic bevvies served in a sophisticated wood-paneled den. (Nor does it slouch on bar bites, with hot dogs and other funky fare devised by star chef Ken Oringer.) Yet hip DJs, board games, View-Master menus and rubber-ducky drink garnishes lend goofy, Gen Y-skewing charm.
