Chic Drinks with A chic Friend: Lobby Bar, The Hotel Chelsea

If you are in NYC and want to do drinks in a quintessential, elegant old European/New York way, head to the recently renovated Lobby Bar at The Hotel Chelsea. We were first seated in the lovely candle lit solarium room, but the Maîte d’ need that spot and gently moved us to an even more comfortable plush sofa banquet. The crowd was elegant and cool in an understated way. I am not a drinker so I ordered a Virgin Mary and some crudités. She ordered a Margarita and our drinks were served with mixed nuts. I love a beautiful rest room and the downstairs lobby one didn’t disappoint (I don’t have pics of that.) My chic friend said she had previously enjoyed breakfast in the Lobby bar and the morning sun streaming in added to its beauty. The photographs of the hotel rooms look inviting. The storied history of this hotel is worth a deep dive. (Photographs aren’t mine.)
