Big, riotous, and open around the clock, this lacquer-walled music lounge is hugely popular with the after-work crowd. In the early evenings, men and women in expensive suits line the long, gleaming bar for happy-hour drink specials; later on, the energy kicks up a notch when the house jazz band takes to the stage, and local socialites and media execs head-bob from the banquettes and comfy sofas. The cocktail menu is lengthy, but savvy sippers know to choose the potent signature lychee martinis.

Tip: Grab a seat in the main lounge (rather than in one of the side areas) for the best people-watching.
