King Cole Bar
If power happy hours existed, the St. Regis’s bar would be the place to go. Come 4:30 p.m., suited execs perch at the tables or the bar for classic cocktails. It’s known as the birthplace of the Bloody Mary, and the bar’s version is their most popular drink, but they also make a killer martini. Don’t forget to look up at Maxfield Parrish’s painting of John Jacob Astor in the guise of Old King Cole—it holds an amusing, if slightly uncouth, secret.
