Number 1 on our list: The Blond at the New 11 Howard.

BLLA is arriving in NYC on June 8th to host our Boutique Hotel Investment Conference and we thought we would list our favorite bars in the city. The guidelines we had while creating this list were ambiance, quality and uniqueness of the drinks, bar food, design, location, art, marketing, social media, customer service, management and “Instagram-able” moments.
