During the daytime, Patent Pending is just a little coffee shop in Nomad. But at 5pm, they start seating people in a bar that’s hidden in the back. It’s a cool space, with a row of booths and a bar - but it isn’t very big, and it fills up quickly. They also only take reservations for parties of 4-6, so you should get here early if want a seat. The space itself is dark and candlelit, and you should bring either a date or a couple of friends when you want to hang out somewhere with good (albeit pricey) cocktails.

Her Name is Han
Incredibly fun and serving some very delicious Korean food, Her Name Is Han is a no brainer.
The Smith’s Nomad location has big windows they open in the summertime and a menu with everything from quinoa to steak. It's a solid backup plan.
Suggested by our writers
A conveniently located restaurant in Midtown that’s more than just convenient. The food and service at Covina are great.
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.
