Jimmy at The James Hotel

Neighborhood: SoHo
Address:
15 Thompson St.
Website: jimmysoho.com
Price Point: $$$

Jimmy is like your cool best friend with impeccable taste and lots of money. This new SoHo spot landed at the top of a lot lists, and rightfully so. On the 18th floor of the James Hotel, choose from a variety of expensive but well-crafted cocktails concocted by mixologist Johnny Swet, and take in panoramic views of Midtown, Wall Street, and the Hudson River. The outdoor pool deck serves as über-modern headquarters for summer relaxation with an outdoor fireplace and open air views that make you feel like you might fall off the roof with one careless step in the wrong direction. But don't do that. Stay for the drinks.
