Concierge.com's insider take:
Every year, style mavens in town for fashion or furniture week agree that the famed garden bar of the Sheraton Diana Majestic hotel has become "impossible," and is "so last decade" (though in its present reincarnation, it only dates back to 2000). But chances are the stylish set will swing by at some point in the evening anyway, just in case there's someone there who hasn't heard the news—and also because designers often use the space to present their collections. The garden, with its fountains, classical statuary, and ever-changing themed decor, is a lovely spot for aperitivo-sipping in the warmer months. Inside, away from fashion show time, the updated Deco ambience and loud backbeat attract a clientele of local figli di papà (late-teens and twentysomethings whose lifestyle is underwritten by daddy) and semicelebrities. Observe them wryly from a perch at the bar, cradling an excellent (but not cheap) whiskey sour.
Closed in August.
