The latest addition to Robert De Niro’s empire is decadent and glitzy (interiors impresario David Collins designed the spaces), with a large bar perfect for evening cocktails. Order the bold signature tipple, the Matsuhisa Martini: Wyborowa gin, Hokusetsu sake, and fresh ginger garnished with cucumber. The partnership spared no expense, bringing in grained wood tables, gold fabric walls embroidered with trees, and bathrooms stocked with Kiehl’s products. With saketinis starting at $20.50 a pop, and Asahi beer for $9, you’ll want to sip slowly—giving you more time to drink in the handsome surroundings.

Insider Tip: This is a great late-night drink spot; the lounge’s bar serves until 2 a.m.
