Press Lounge at Ink48

Neighborhood: Hell's Kitchen
653 11th Ave.  
Price Point: $$

With a pool shaped like a runway, you know what you can expect at this 16th-floor oasis. Fashion and PR chicks have been known to sip cocktails here after hours, but the venue closes at 2 a.m., even on the weekends. Classy women aren’t out at unreasonable hours, remember? So if you’re trying to shmooze and booze (try the Market Muddle cocktail; trust us, it's tasty), take a seat in one of the swivelly bucket chairs or sleek black sofas, enjoy views of the Hudson and Midtown West, and prepare to name-drop at least a few brands mentioned in The Devil Wears Prada if you want to impress.
