Soaring bi-level space inside the Carlton Hotel retains classic original skylight, mosaic floor, mahogany bar. Versatile venue welcomes the hoi polloi to the downstairs lounge, with wine bar and live music soundtrack. Lobby bar puts sports on the screen, scotches in your belly. For more exclusivity, head upstairs to the brasserie. Seafood-centered menu delivered with French panache. After dinner, cross the glass bridge to the artisanal cocktail bar, open by reservation only. Sink back in a leather chair, pretend it’s still the heyday of Tin Pan Alley.
