Hotel 50 Bowery

Located in an incredibly convenient (and increasingly hip cultural hub often referred to as Dimes Square) section of lower Manhattan that straddles the Lower East Side, Chinatown and Little Italy, Hotel 50 Bowery is in the center of all the action on the city's oldest street. The hotel may be an anomaly among mid-priced Manhattan hotels with an exceptionally friendly and accommodating staff and surprisingly spacious rooms, many with great views of the Manhattan Bridge with its glamorous Beaux Arts triumphal arch and colonnade and a rooftop bar for even more inspiring city views.

Koloman Restaurant and Bar

Named for the noted Viennese artist and member of the Vienna Seccession movement Koloman Moser, this Midtown restaurant is a gorgeous (and delicious) salute to design and Viennese cuisine. Celebrated chef Markus Glocker presides over Koloman's gorgeous restaurant decorated in keeping with the distinctive Secessionist style. The food is extraordinary including the pork schnitzel with lingonberries, duck liver parfait with toasted brioche and pastries in the French and Austrian traditions. The restaurant and bar are unpretentious and feel like a trip to Vienna without the jet lag.

Ace Hotel

With its unconventional vintage- and music-inspired design, Ace Hotel in New York City (attached to the exquisite Koloman restaurant) is not only a hipster haven but a budgetista’s dream. The lobby bar is a haven for hotel guests as well as the happy hour crowd, thanks to its warm wood paneling, buttery leather chairs and, of course, the cocktails. The dim industrial lighting and vintage flag add to the feel of understated cool.
