You know how spin instructors love to tell you that “THIS RIDE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT”? At Trophy Bar, the same is true. (See, valuable lessons learned at SoulCycle can also be applied to drinking.) Whether you’re going for casual drinking at Happy Hour or party time on the weekends, Trophy is a versatile choice that can mold to whatever experience you’re aiming for. There are usually good DJs here, and the bar food is also surprisingly solid.
