New York City-Midtown Manhattan
May 11, 2018
If such things matter to you, this is the bar who once proudly served the most expensive cocktail on the planet. A concoction of Veuve Clicquot, Remy XO, Pineau des Charentes, mixed at your table, and garnised with a a slick of liquid gold, it’s Thorstein Veblen in drink form. These days this place, appropraitely housed in the Trump World Tower, retains an air of unashamed luxury with its back-lit marble bar and stylish bronze tables. Opulent for the sake of it, only a few of the savvier hedge fund managers will be able to afford it on a regular basis, but as one-off excursion into opulence it’s worth your time.
