10 NYC Hotel Bars You Must Try

We're equal-opportunity drinkers, and if we want to grab a drink at a hotel in the city, nothing's gonna stop us. And, we mean it because you don't have to book a room to take advantage of a hotel's bar. Speciality cocktails, light bites, amazing cityscapes, and even pools can be yours — all without having to swipe an access card.

So, with the help of Moët & Chandon, we created a handy guide to the best hotel bars around the city where you can get your drink on even if you didn't reserve a one-night stay. From a bar with amazing views of the Hudson and The High Line to one with an impressive collection of books, these haunts will have you thinking twice about hitting up your local joint tonight. Start planning your night now.

Skip your regular watering hole tonight and head to the intimate Grape & Vine bar stat. Cozy, but not overwhelming, this downtown lounge brings the charm with plush velvet booths, a fireplace, and bohemian decor. Hit up the Grape & Vine restaurant a few steps away for burrata and lamb shanks — the perfect dinner date.
Grape & Vine at The Jade Hotel, 52 W. 13th Street (between Fifth and Sixth avenues); 212-300-4525.
