Stone Rose Lounge was, once upon a time, a favorite client of mine. With unbeatable views of Columbus Circle and Central Park, a cozy yet brooding atmosphere and killer cocktails, it’s still one of my favorite places to bring friends or meet for drinks after work. While generally considered a bar, the small plates menu by Marc Murphy also makes it a good place to grab a bite over a glass of wine.
It’s also a good location for business meetings over drinks, casual and first dates, girls’ nights out, entertaining out of town friends, guys’ nights out, meeting hot girls and rich guys, finding one night stands, big groups, small bites and people watching.
Good For Business Drinks: The place is so packed with suits after work that my friend, financial reporter John Carney, once covered a game of “Banker/Lawyer” we played here for CNBC.com. It’s a great spot to rub elbows, network and entertain over drinks and a bite to eat.
Good For Groups: The couches, situated next to the floor-to-ceiling windows in the back of the room, provide an excellent area for big groups to sit and chat. However, they fill up quickly so get here early to snag the prime seating.
Good For One Night Stands: Notorious for attracting cougars – and other groupies of the aforementioned suits – there is a wealth of natural “hook up opportunity” provided.
