Can’t make it to today’s matches at the U.S. Open?
The Crosby Street Hotel offers a tall, cool alternative. The Grey Goose Honey Deuce Cocktail is available as long as the Open is in town – through September 8, in other words.
It’s a last liquid gasp of summer – vodka, raspberry liqueur, lemonade and chilled honey dew melon balls on a stick. Sounds like an ace.
The Crosby Street Hotel is also an ace if you like chic, one-of-a-kind hotels and long to be downtown (it’s on a quiet SoHo street, which is not an oxymoron). But I like its buzzy eco system: Sunday night movies (with champagne) in the screening room, herbs and vegetables fresh from the room garden on your dinner plate, and the only bookcase shaped like a polar bear I’ve found in a New York City hotel (so far). The best hotels are a country unto themselves.
