Le Bar at The Sofitel
With overstuffed royal-purple chairs, a French oil painting, and architectural books scattered throughout, Sofitel’s Le Bar feels like a nobleman’s drawing room. Settle in and peruse the His and Hers cocktail menu; it’s divided for Venus and Mars residents and their gender-specific palates. Hers are “elegant and complex,” while His are “handsome and refined.”
Tip: Don’t worry—ordering from the opposite side of the list won’t get you tossed out.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
