Whether or not you have any interest in buying a new jacket, there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself talking to a Tom Ford sales rep if you’re trying to get a drink at Bar Stanley. This cocktail bar is in the back of the second floor of the Hudson Yards Neiman Marcus, and after walking through aisles of $200 jeans for 15 minutes, you’ll eventually have to crack and ask one of the smiling sales associates where the hell to go. Once you do locate this place, you’ll find yourself in a small room with some bar seats and a few plush booths full of people drinking martinis with shopping bags at their feet. The cocktails are all $19, but they’re also very well made, and should help if you’re stressed out after debating between skinny and slim fits all afternoon.

Although they’re known for their libations at Fort Defiance, this restaurant doesn’t feel like one of those super-cool, pretentious cocktail dens that we all know too well. It has the promise of the perfect neighborhood spot that, if we lived in this hood, we’d frequent all the time.

Eataly: La Birreria
We didn't see it coming, but we actually really dig the beer garden on the roof of Eataly. You’ll be hard pressed to find one with a larger variety of good things to eat, and the crowd is much more pleasant up here than in the tourist packed insanity that exists underneath it.
The Tippler is a big bar beneath Chelsea Market, and it’s the sort of place where you’ll listen to top 40 and talk to a guy in Vineyard Vines.
