Neighborhood: NoMad/Flatiron
Address1170 Broadway

It may not have the draw of the younger, tech-scene crowd and media scene hangout that populates the lobby of the Ace Hotel right up the street, but all the more reason to take refuge in the NoMad's dark hallways and various bars instead. The NoMad has a more international crowd attending to it, and its celebrity draw has proven pretty powerful lately. Having a Maison Kitsune boutique for a "hotel store" doesn't hurt, and neither does a choice of six different spots within the hotel to grab a bite or a drink, all drawing from the same critically acclaimed menu, though with occasional distinctions. We say hit the atrium during the day, one of the greatest naturally-lit spaces in New York to grab a drink or a cup of coffee right now. Expensive as hell? Yes. But if you've got it, and got it to spend? Spend it here. -Foster Kamer
