WHERE TO DRINK
The Blond, the newly opened bar at the 11 Howard hotel (11howard.com), is likely to be the scene of many a late night get down during NYFW. A perennial favourite of industry insiders, The Blond only gets better during fashion week.
The Bar Room at The Beekman (thompsonhotels.com/hotels/the-beekman) is the most beautiful space to have a drink or a quiet moment between shows. The setting is New York at its most show-stopping, making this a must-visit while in town.
For those late, late nights, count on heading to China Chalet (chinachalet.com). Dim sum parlour by day, party den by night, it’s a classic ‘only in New York’ scenario. It’s also a ‘what happens there stays there’ kind of place, meaning that even the most private fashion types throw down once inside.
