The Daily Shortlist July 9
The HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival presents On the Waterfront starring Marlon Brando who breaks your heart as an ex-pug who “coulda been a contender” in Elia Kazan’s gritty drama about corruption on the Hoboken docks. (1954) 108 Min. (Sony/Columbia). For dinner, check out Vinyl, a rock and roll themed restaurant, where 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 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.
