The epitome of effortless cool, British It boys and Rag & Bone designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville are men about town, and with rather discerning palettes when it comes to New York’s finest watering holes. Here they share their recommendations:
80 Spring St.
“I have been going there since I first came to NYC and it’s always festive. I tend to drink Laurent-Perrier Rosé there.” –David
55 Little West 12th St.
“This is Rag & Bone’s second home and where I enjoy a pint or two of Stella.” –David
“For a Guinness, the Irish version of a cocktail, it’s the best bar in New York—at least that’s what we tell the owner, our friend Sean.” –Marcus
Bemelmans Bar, Carlyle Hotel
35 East 76th St.
“I really like it here—it’s traditional and chic. My drink of choice at Bemelmans is a glass of Barolo.” –David
57 E 57th St.
“It’s probably the most old school bar in New York and they possibly make the best martini. It’s also where I got engaged!” –Marcus
Marlow & Sons
81 Broadway, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
“It’s just a lovely place to eat and hang out. It’s also a good place for a vodka and tonic… and a couple of bottles of wine.” –Marcus
