Twinkly Lights at The Breslin

The Breslin, at the Ace Hotel
Photo by myself at the Breslin Bar, at 29th and Broadway.

The bar at The Breslin is laden with neon, twinkly lights and mirrored reflections.

This area of town is a bit of an in-between zone, just south of the Empire State Building and north of the Flatiron Building. These few blocks are usually deserted, since most of the gift shops and stores close at night.

The Breslin Bar recently opened as part of a complex, along with the The Ace Hotel and John Dory Oyster Bar in the same bulding. They've gotten rave reviews. Suddenly, this area has become a destination. The interiors are evocative of aged British pubs, complete with water-stained ceilings.

Porcine specialties include pig's foot and pork belly. Have a snack of a Scotch egg or caramel popcorn. If you're looking for a meal, the lamb ribs with creme fraiche or duck sausage with fennel sound delicious.

The Dining Room part of the Breslin offers cozy booths and soaring ceilings.

Beautiful shots, Kitty. When we were in NYC last May, we stayed at the Ace Hotel and had breakfast a couple of mornings in the Breslin. Both were wonderful. As an architect, I'm sure you would love all the cool details of the hotel's rooms.

Love the "ambiance". Funny that everywhere in the world, NY, PAris, there is a café where people met and share
