It's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week so NYC is ripe with celebs, athletes and rockstars. On Monday night they descended onto the Penthouse suite of the Empire Hotel for the first ever L3 Lounge presented by New Era and hosted by celebrity stylist, Phillip Bloch. The chic suite overlooked the steps of Lincoln Center and was transformed into a fashion oasis for men (and this girl). Brands such as DL 1961 Premium Denim and New Era hats (yep snagged a fab white Yankee hat that made it into the night) were readily avail and John Allan’s Salon offered complimentary services. Dewar's Scotch was flowing behind the bar and it kept the party going with signature cocktails like the Dewar's Smash - very light and refreshing - kind of like a scotch mojito. I didn't see them...but spotted at the lounge was Gabe Saporta (lead singer of Cobra Starship), Sex and the City Alum, Mario Cantone, 30 Rock’s Scott Adsit and the Real Housewives of NYC couple du jour.

As a Drink Editor I receive a lot of requests for restaurant, bar and nightlife recommendations. So I started a blog to chronicle Chicago's social scene which eventually morphed into New York's drinking and dining scene. After years in Chicago, I'm now a full time resident of NYC, the East Village to be exact. Look forward to sharing the latest and greatest from the wine & spirits world, straight from the Big Apple.
