A60

a60A rather subdued and chic 13th-floor rooftop bar in the heart of Soho. On top of one of the original trendy designer hotels,  the Thompson Hotel.  A60 is a members only bar, but if you get a room, your room key will grant you access. And if you somehow manage to get in some other way, the hostess will check to see if you have the Thompson logo stamped on your hand. This is not a loud club, but rather a cool lounge where you can relax with a cocktail while you take in the view. A nice plus is that you also have the non-members only Thom bar downstairs, which is a tad louder but still equally stylish.

Hours: May-Labor Day: daily, 5pm-2am, weather permitting; Labor Day-Apr: daily, closed

The Anchor

3theanchorA trendy spot pretending to look divey, which was opened not surprisingly by a publicist. The design seems part lodge and part mod. There is a doorman but he basically only cards you. The crowd can be young and/or silly, but it won’t prevent you from dancing it up on the make shift dancefloor in the back. This bar almost feels like it should be in West LA rather than that weird no man’s land west of Soho.

Supposed open bar for $20 with top shelf liquor on Thursday nights from 7 to 9

Hours: Wed-Sun, 10pm-4am; Mon-Tue, closed
