Yes, this is the bar on top of the hotel where Sleep No More takes place, but you aren’t going to have to wear a mask here. This is a laid-back rooftop bar with some nice shrubbery and plenty of places to sit. It’s also one of your best drinking options in Chelsea (especially when you want to hang outdoors). Sure, the Frying Pan is only a few blocks away, but this bar feels less like a frat party. Stop by for dinner, drinks, or a serve-yourself brunch.

Holy Ground is a below-ground Tribeca spot that looks like an old-school steakhouse, but actually specializes in slow smoked meats.
Soho Park is a very casual spot on Prince Street where you can sit down, eat an okay sandwich, and feel like you’re not in Soho.
Everything at Kingside is overpriced and underwhelming. Spare yourself and only go if you feel like checking out the beehive of glammed-up female and single rich dude activity.
