This underground lounge, hidden in Barneys and Bloomies land, features sumptuous touches like a see-through bar, red velvet banquettes and tobacco-colored faux-croc-leather wall panels. The luxe vibe and tasty herb-muddled cocktails like the basil-mint mojito make it worth braving the crowd of business types.
