The New York Palace highlights rare bottles of booze at this 25-seat, reservation-only lounge, decorated with stained-glass windows, gold chandeliers and plush armchairs. Kept behind lock and key in display cases, the big-ticket lineup includes Prohibition-era whiskeys and limited-edition cognacs, with bottles like a Macallan 60-year and an 1855 vintage port going for four figures each.
