This exhibition celebrates the contributions of the late Alexander McQueen to fashion in Savage Beauty, which offers up much from his short-lived career and already iconic designs. If you love dogs, not hot dogs but real doggies, then youâ€™ll really love the Barking Dog Luncheonette, as the dÃ©cor features everything with a dog on it. The food, is your regular diner fare with plenty of burger, sandwich, and hot plate options. Grab a drink and feel like you were transported to the late 1800â€™s at The Auction House. With ornamental red velvet couches, exposed brick walls, and vintage chandeliers, this hidden gem of a bar is cozy. Beautifully designed, Uptown Lounge is a bar and restaurant serving American fare like Apple Peppercorn Pork Chops ($18), while being big enough to stick around afterwards for drinks.
