Made in the image of Manhattan’s “bottles and models” clubs, this restaurant and lounge sits at the very top of Long Island City’s Ravel Hotel. At 8,000 square feet, there’s no lack of space, while already impressive views of the glittering city, Queensboro Bridge and the East River are even more breathtaking at night. The menu is pan-Asian, with sushi, Thai, Hawaiian and novel seafood dishes on offer, and house specialties that often go above and beyond in terms of artful, unexpectedly creative presentation. (One swordfish dish incorporates an actual sword!) If you’re just here to enjoy the nightlife, expect “upscale-chill” decor, which is all the better for laid-back cocktail drinking as you take in the sounds of EDM.
