Located in the lobby of the W Hotel, Oasis provides a warm, luxurious atmosphere (wintertime bonus: a fireplace); two levels of lounge space; and a crowd of midtown professionals swathed in black. Cocktails have silly names—like the Flirtini—but plenty of kick. If you’re hungry, snack on John Mooney’s fare from the adjoining restaurant.
