Jimmy at The James has the requisite roof and pool, but also a fireplace and cozy armchairs. New York Magazine says, "The James Hotel's newly-unveiled rooftop cocktail lounge will no doubt be filled once folks get wind of the amazing view. Drink prices average out at $16, with standouts including the Legal in Vermont, a bourbon concoction complete with ice made from cinnamon water and bark." Luxury Travel Advisor describes the vibe: "Channeling an English pub with a dash of 1970's decadence, the new bar features herringbone floors, brick glazed tile walls, a leather trimmed wooden bar top, periwinkle plush sofas and of course, a couple roaring fireplaces to keep the chill at bay." This new hot spot is run by David Rabin, Larry Poston, and Johnny Swet of Hotel Griffou.
