Ryan Chetiyawardana (of Britain's groundbreaking 69 Colebrooke Row) oversees the cocktails at this 104-seat lounge, named after explorer Henry Hudson. Choose from a menu of contemporary quaffs, like the Polleno (fino sherry, apple and fennel pollen) and the Living Cocktail (tequila, miso-caramel and homemade carrot vinegar). Furnished with banquettes, chartreuse-hued tile floors and a restored ceiling fresco, the space hosts live jazz bands and appearances by house DJs like punk-rock evangelist Paul Sevigny.
