THE SPOT Cellar Bar at the Bryant Park Hotel
THE SCOOP The park-adjacent location makes this bar a perfect spot to have a cocktail following the fashion shows in Bryant Park. The nightspot's vaulted stone walls are dimly lit with candles and wrought-iron chandeliers, while a sunset-hued light show plays over a Gothic grate. Nick Lachey recently hosted a pre-VMA party in this cavernous space, and the presence of his close friend Vanessa Minnillo proved a worthy distraction from the corset-clad waitresses.
