Whiskey Blue offers a modern take on New York’s legendary men’s clubs. Fashioned by SLDesign, the bar features navy snakeskin-leather club chairs and vibrant blue couches. An array of stunning photographs lines the walls, while zebra-striped fabrics and other stylish accessories add dynamic energy to the space. Located on the ground floor of the W New York, Whiskey Blue offers an extensive selection of wine and beer, as well as a wide range of spirits and liqueurs. Its cocktail menu features an ever-changing selection of libations that highlight market fresh ingredients and seasonal favorites, in addition to signature sips like the Midnight Manhattan. A small bites menu is available from Chef Peter Andino and features favorites like Classic Sliders, Grilled Tiger Prawns and Loaded Fries.
NYMAG Review: Whiskey Blue, in the W Hotel on Lexington Avenue, is ludicrously popular, with an onslaught of desperate-for-a-drink suits descending on the place nightly, looking to score martinis and women. They do pretty well on both counts, it seems, what with a bar staff that knows they don’t need to smile or be polite to get a tip and with a significant turnout of young women—tottering on high-high heels with a Cosmo in one hand and a Fendi baguette in the other—thinking this just might be the night they meet the seven-figure man of their dreams.
