Just inside the unmarked entrance of this fancy hotel in the Met Life Tower, there’s a very nice and very mellow lobby bar. There are couches, chairs, some low coffee tables, and relaxed/upscale vibes. If you want to feel like a well-off business traveler or Christian Grey on a low-key night, this is the place. It’s quiet, discreet, and the cocktails are good. Linger with a drink, and if you’re hungry they do some small plates from the same kitchen as Clocktower.

Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.

The Clocktower in the Edition Hotel is a Flatiron facsimile of a popular restaurant in London. And it works here just as well as it works over there.
