Lenox Lounge Tragedy

2013 January 11
by Iheartnycbars

The Lenox lounge as we know it is closed. Yet another lease dispute. Owner of building wants more money, along comes the managing partner at Nobu and gets the lease and promises to leave everything as is (as if). Owner of bar takes original art deco furnishing and neon sign with him and says he will open a place a few block up the street.

Sad day for history and jazz buffs. New York you are bringing me down.

Another unassuming rooftop bar, this one is in the flower district. Surprisingly the view is not as ho-hum as the hotel or the clientele. A good option if you like views with no frills and $9 beers.

127 W. 28th st nr 6th ave. Tel. 213-973- 9000

Ok, this place hardy counts as a rooftop. But, if you find yourself around Penn Station on a nice summer day it might fit the bill – if you’re not too picky. But then again, why in the hell were you in that area anyway?

Ox Cart Tavern

Ditmas Park is a suburban oasis developed at the turn of the last century. Imagine beautiful Tudor and Victorian mini mansions in Flatbush Brooklyn. A great walk on a weekend afternoon. And a great spot to recharge is the Ox Cart Tavern, with good burgers and a chill neighborhood crowd, with whom you can toast to gentrification -you know, the good early-stage kind.

1401 Newkirk Ave. nr Argyle Rd. Ditmas Park, Brooklyn 11230, tel. 718-284-0005
