Hudson Bar Tips (6)

Hudson bar: Great nightlife

I think this is the best decorated spot in manhattan, the bar has great music, and a lot of manhattan wildlife ( YUPPIES ) you can see a mixture between acrilic chairs and old style wooden chais or long rococco marbre table with modern sthuls, designed by Phillip Starck. wide range of sprits and alcohols, great lounge music with a life Dj. and fusion appetizers menu. great place to be in.

Hudson Hotel Bar: What Happened to the Hudson Hotel Bar???

I went to the Hudson Bar a couple years ago and marveled at the Philippe Starke interior and the beautiful people that filled in the space. The music was loungey and swank. The drinks were impeccable. NOT ANYMORE! Hip hop nation has taken over and bottle are expected to be purchased to have a seat in one of the Louis VIII chairs. Teenagers from New Jersey seemed to have taken over. +++ I must mention I had the very worst dirty martini of my life here. We politely asked if they could remix as they poured more olive juice than vodka in the drink and they were warm. I am fairly sure the bartender simply shook the swill and repoured the drinks. At $15 per martini, I would expect better.

Dress Code Bridge and Tunnel looking for a little meth.

Hudson Bar: Fancyish good bar no. 2

This is actually a hotel bar (Hudsno Hotel) which is very popular among newyorkers who look for fancy trendy places. I have to say the architecture is interesting and kind of postmodern. There are three different areas: an "intellectual" lounge, with books and a pool table and soft music; a "trendy" lounge; and a nice outside terrace which is extremely popular, nice, and appealing to smokers (smoking is prohibited inside - New York city law).
The drinks are fine, but it is really the setting and the ambience that are worth the price.
The service isn't great: I admit the waitresses are very pretty and very unorthodoxly (un)dressed.
The place is very popular, and there are many age groups that form the clientele: from late 20s, to 50s.

Hudson Library: Cozy, fabulous, and expensive

In the Hudson Hotel, an Ian Schrager construct that is actually quite hideous from the outside (flourescent yellow windows), go up the bizarre escalators, take a left and then a right at the elevators, walk down a dimly lit hallway with plush, funky chairs and candles, squeeze your way around the Europeans, and get cozy at the Hudson Library, a funky bar decorated like a library right out of clue. Pick up your $14 glass of wine (yes! $14! I was robbed), don't ask the price, and then choose to chill on a deep plush leather couch or at a chess table. Or you can hang around the funky purple pool table at which there always seems to be some rag tag group of richies playing. The other day we had someone who looked like Ghandi, a japanese businessman, and a richy frat-boy looking type. I'd say the only downside is the prices - you're paying for major atmosphere here.

Dress Code I've always been for an after work drink, and I usually look nice for work. I'd gather if you were going in the evening, the more elegant you look, the better - this is a major hot spot. So throw on anything designer or designer-looking, your highest pair of heels, and you should do well.
