Oscar Wilde is very much not like other bars. And that’s mostly due to the theme. It’s inspired by the life of, you guessed it, Oscar Wilde, and it feels like a wing of old-timey Irish castle converted into a drinking space for young professionals. It’s spacious, the ceilings are high, and it’s filled with stained glass windows, a marble fireplace, and about 40 different kinds of lighting fixtures. And while this might make it sound stuffy, it isn’t. Weekends here get extremely busy, and you can expect to find lots of people mingling and getting kind of sloppy.

The NoMad Bar
Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.
Death & Co
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.
Like the other locations, Quality Eats in Nomad is a steakhouse for people who don’t want to feel like they’re eating in a country club.
