Trump International Hotel & Tower New York has just one bar, but that bar, Nougatine, stands out thanks to its chef and mastermind, Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Though aside from the cuisine, the bar is also a stunner with floor-to-ceiling windows that create the perfect canvas for a Central Park landscape.
Nougatine tends to fill up quickly because of its central location and small size. Its 12 barstools are some of the most popular seats at Columbus Circle. To snag a seat, we suggest you arrive by about 5:15 or 5:30 p.m. Order one of the local specialties: a vodka-thyme lemonade or a passion fruit-whiskey soda. Then relax and bask in knowing that you’ve got one of the most coveted seats in Manhattan.
If you’re looking for a refreshing non-alcoholic drink, Nougatine offers terrific house made sodas, including itscherry-yuzu and pomegranate-lime varieties. Cocktails cost between $14 and $18 each, a relatively reasonable price for midtown Manhattan. Even if you’re not staying at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, this New York bar is worth a visit.
