Though it’s nestled in the lobby of the chic and somewhat stark Hotel Sax, walking into this bar feels a lot like walking onto the set of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette: The space is filled with Victorian-esque chairs and chaises, and an eclectic soundtrack that encompasses disco, indie dance, rock and more commercial fare on weekends. The result is a place that feels cold and antiquated yet sexy and new at the same time.
