The Crosby Bar
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Guests of the Crosby Hotel—the chichi lodging that houses this giant, colorful lounge—will have to venture farther than the lobby to get a quality drink. Sloppy (and at $18, offensively priced) cocktails include the Slow Recovery—an overwrought and prohibitively sugary blend of bourbon, sherry, Bénédictine, almond syrup and lime and coffee oils (the latter ingredient was undetectable). A Rob Roy (Scotch, sweet vermouth, Peychaud’s bitters) was so watery, it might as well have been fruit punch. Hateful service compounded the experience—when presenting us with our bar snacks (rubber-band calamari, congealed pork belly), our put-upon waitress refused to supply forks, nodding instead to a pile of toothpicks. She returned later to drop the check before it was requested, and managed to squeak out a “cheers” while barely containing an eye roll. We toasted to never having to come back.
