The sleek and stylish fifth floor Living Room Bar and Terrace at the W New York - Downtown, has a cocktail menu (created by Charlotte Voisey, a James Beard Award nominee) that matches the fancy decor. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow you to take in the Manhattan lights and gorgeous views of the city (including the soon-to-be-finished One World Trade Center), while sipping on handcrafted cocktails and gourmet small plates. We've got three different deals below, courtesy of Gilt City, that give you the perfect excuse to leave work a little early today.
This $35 deal, valued at $69, gives you a bottle of the house-selected wine (red or white) to share. The wine is paired perfectly with a plate of five artisanal American cheeses, making it a wonderful way to unwind with a friend.
You and a friend can enjoy two specialty cocktails each (four total) and a small plate, $77 value, for only $40. Specialty cocktails include drinks like the Wall Street Bull (Bulldog gin, cucumber, lime juice, and jalapeno) or the Room Number (Ketel One vodka, blood orange, raspberries, lime juice, and jalapeno). The Nibbles menu includes items like tuna tartare with wasabi, avocado, and crispy shallots, or grilled spicy octopus with lemon potato salad.
This deal, worth $263, gives you bottle service for up to six people with your choice of Belvedere, Grey Goose, or Patron Silver, for only $125. The bottle comes with mixers, plus one order of Parmesan and olives and one order of french fries from the Nibbles menu.
