Bars aplenty line the upscale swathe of Central Park South, just outside the doors of La Prairie at The Ritz-Carlton Spa. At the corner of 59th Street and Fifth Avenue, you’ll find The Plaza Hotel’s Oak Bar inside the Oak Room, a wood-paneled paradise as popular for its luxurious ambience as it is for its frequent celebrity sightings. To the west of the New York spa you’ll find Whiskey Park, located inside the Trump Parc Building. The bar offers a menu of staple wines and liquors in addition to the quirky cocktail or two (jalapeno margarita, anyone?). The friendly, lower-key PJ Carney’s is a bit further afield on Seventh Avenue. And if you don’t want to stray far from the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa, well, no worry: There’s always the hotel bar on the ground floor.
