Take a cosy banquette in the George Washington Bar for a romantic late-night tipple, and a window seat in Studio for fare with a view.
All dining and drinking options at the hotel are super laidback so you’ll never feel underdressed.
The hotel has three restaurants to choose from, depending on what flavours you fancy that day. Led by New York’s Gabriel Stulman and his Happy Cooking team, Simon & the Whale is a lively neighborhood restaurant serving sharing-size plates of fresh seafood. Studio is an all-day café on the second floor of the hotel. Wth windows as walls, the restaurant offers great city views all day and night, as well as first-class edibles, of course. Smile To Go is a grab-and-go outpost of the popular NoHo café, The Smile, offering healthy Mediterranean-inspired fare that focuses on seasonal flavours and ingredients.
Revamping an old classic, the George Washington Bar is set inside the former Library Room of the original George Washington Hotel. Although less stuffy than its predecessor, the sultry bar has retained many of the room’s original features including a selection of 1920s artworks for you to admire as you sip classic cocktails. The Freehand’s spirited mixologists also bring their award-winning concoctions to the New York skyline; set on the hotel’s rooftop, Broken Shaker cocktail bar serves the Freehand’s unique mix of elixirs and syrups, paired with fragrant herbs, freshly pressed juices and exotic ingredients from around the world.
