Brasserie 8 1/2, New York

United States

Extract from A Manhattan Bar For All Reasons.

The modernist pedigree begins with the building, one of Gordon Bunshaft’s most distinctive. To descend the sweeping spiral staircase into the cocktail lounge feels like entering Dr. No’s lair. The comfortable leather couches, minimal colour palette and well-turned-out drinks will please any International stylist.
