Great Bars 2013: Napoleon Bistro & Lounge

You can ease into the weekend with half-price Champagne
cocktails and appetizers until 8 on weekdays on the entry-level floor of
this all-black bistro, but the real fete awaits in the subterranean
Metropolitan lounge. Weekends bring a global cast of well-heeled revelers
dancing to equally eclectic beats. Insider tip: Come May, look for a newly
expanded basement bar and the return of bottomless brunch on Saturday.
Open daily.
