Leather-bound books line the walls of what was once the reading room of the Mansfield Hotel. Now a sleek circular bar sits beneath an ornate glass cupola, beckoning the thirsty midtown office set. A cocktail list features specialties like the Mansfield old-fashioned—whiskey, bitters, sugar, soda, cherries and orange. Visit on Wednesdays at 7pm, when there’s live jazz.
