Take your speakeasy game to the next level at the Library with a capital L. With two levels of floor-to-ceiling bookcases stocked with tomes and a spiral staircase worthy of an exaggerated slow walk, this intimate space feels like your favorite bookstore and coffee shop merged and got a liquor license. Be sure to stop by early — after 4 p.m., hotel guests get first dibs on seats.
Library at The NoMad Hotel, 1170 Broadway (at 28th Street); 212-796-1500.
