The Daily Shortlist October 1
English post-punk group Echo & the Bunnymen, who though have been together for the last 10 years, are also in the category of old school bands playing their classic album front to back as they perform 1984s Ocean Rain and maybe some tracks off their soon to be released album The Fountain. A perfect compliment to a night of music is Vinyl. At this rock and roll themed restaurant, the menus are made of old album covers and the food is a mix of American and Thai. Don’t forget to check out the bathroom, each one has a music icon theme. With vaulted ceilings and a mostly red and cream interior, the Cellar Bar, located in the Bryant Park Hotel, is one gorgeous place, creating a sexy atmosphere. The drinks are pricey, but worth the stopover. For kicks, take a little walk through the Bryant Park Hotel. This chic boutique hotel, designed by British architect David Chipperfield, not only has the Cellar Bar but the Koi Restaurant, a fantastic Japanese spot.
