The voyeur concept may be gimmicky—through the front window of Glass, you can spy on folks primping in the bathroom—but it does lure you in. Everything in this sleek art-world hangout, from the single elongated banquette that runs the span of the bar to the heated bamboo garden, adheres to architect Thomas Leeser’s ultramodern construction concept. The only danger is that after too many raspberry mojitos, you might forget you’re being watched while powdering your nose.
