Hit up the bar with one of the largest whiskey collections in the Western hemisphere for not two but three parties. Between 5pm and 8pm, chef Russell Jones throws a rooftop cookout: unlimited Southern barbecue and fixings, plus select beer and bourbon ($45). Then between 5pm and 1am, you’ll find the usual bar menu plus New Year’s Eve specials such as vintage cocktail flights and a champagne prix-fixe selection. Downstairs in the hush-hush speakeasy Dram and Grain, a celebration for two ($125/couple) includes a five-sprit cocktail tasting with snacks. No one says you can’t experience all three.
