Do you like fancy?
Do you like sexy?
Do you like opulence?
Do you like seriously quality made drinks with a lot of booze in them?
Then head on over to The Back Room at One57. It’s located inside the sleek new Park Hyatt Hotel in midtown Manhattan NYC. The lobby host greets with a smile and directs you to take the elevator up to the 3rd floor restaurant. As the doors part you walk into a room of high ceilings and luxury surroundings. Think marble, glass, couches, and refined ambiance. The kind of spot where the men are smartly dressed in suit and tie, and the ladies in designer dress wear.
We sat at the bar on this night and had a wonderful experience. The staff here is highly professional, and offers exemplary service. Great bartenders that will partake in polite conversation and attend to your needs. If you chat them up and get to know them a bit they are actually friendly guys. Plus, they make a mean cocktail. Always a plus!
As we had just come from a big steak dinner the craving for something sweet kicked in and we ordered a few desserts to share. Totally delicious with terrific plating. They even put out a few trays of assorted nuts and olives to nosh on. Perfect way to cap off our boys night out toasting our drinks among manly men.
A great spot for a mid-week late evening nightcap if your enjoy a stiff drink while sitting in a sexy sleek opulent environment for sure. Pricey, yes, but it’s a great spot to enjoy a libation in a very adult environment devoid of fratty meatheads, drunken sorostitutes, and bridge & tunnel yokels. Oh, and make sure you hit the bathrooms here. They are as big as my apartment and just as luxurious as the rest of the bar area.
Oh yeah, we men are fancy with our cocktails and pretty desserts! Manly desserts. Good thing I wore my Spanx under my suit and tie on this evening.
