Hotel Chantelle

Owned by Benjamin Shih of Brooklyn's Sweet Ups and the Royal Oak, it's rumored he named named the bar after a French World War II safe house.

It seems the design has a distinctive lean towards the retro as well - between the 18th and 19th-century salvaged wood and blood-red leather banquettes, you'll be feeling nostalgic in no time.

And just in case youre thinking of this place as a cozy, flee from the winter woes sort of place, rest assured that come spring, all the scantily clad sirens of NYC will be flocking to the greenhouse-esque jungle rooftop garden with retractable roof.
