at Marquee (289 10th Avenue, New York City)
Marquee – An exercise in guestlist social pecking order from “Page Six” regulars Noah Tepperberg and Jason Strauss, Marquee is more architecturally stylish than a watering hole needs to be. The dark wood and glass chandeliers take a bit of the bite out of the pricey drinks, not that the moneyed clientele seems to mind — they’re just happy they managed to brag their way in. Mojitos and margaritas are the cocktails of choice, and LA types and celebrities are usually well represented in the see-and-be-seen crowd. Follow the stairs in the back of the room and you’ll come to the second-floor lounge – a surprisingly soundproof glass box that overlooks the upscale revelry on the main floor. If you’re not on the list, or especially good at namedropping, make sure you have a backup bar in mind. (clubplanet.com)
