This is the perfect place to wear that little “barely there” dress you picked up at Michael Kors on Worth Avenue earlier in the afternoon. Located inside the historic Chesterfield Hotel, the décor of this famous lounge built in 1926 lives up to its name, with leopard-spotted carpeting, tablecloths, dishes and even servers’ vests, with red accents all around (aptly described in one review as a “bordello-cum-jungle theme”). There’s live music nightly—on any given evening, swing, jazz, show tunes or classical guitar may be on the bill—and the list of unlikely sounding yet roundly addictive martinis is worth sampling. Happy hour is from 5PM to 7PM every day, and if you’re so inclined, you can dine here as well.
