Hotel Alessandra’s swanky second-floor bar is as elegant as the French starlet it’s named for, with a vintage vibe to match. The digs are decidedly mid-century thanks to a velour couch, a mirrored coffee table, and curved leather armchairs straight out of a posh ’60s living room. The cocktail menu is fittingly martini-heavy, and bartenders dress in mod geometric prints à la Pan-Am flight attendants. This is the rare, blessed spot with happy hour seven days a week—3–7 on weekdays and 3–6 on weekends. Channel your inner Brigitte as you sip an “Enchanté” (bourbon, Grand Marnier, lemon juice, grenadine, and absinthe) alongside good-looking guests pre-gaming ahead of the night’s gala.
