The Gordon Bar, John McDonald's Super Stylish New Lobby Cocktail Lounge in the Sixty Soho

Like a mid-century modern living room, with Italian bar snacks.

Here's a look around the Gordon Bar, the newly-revamped cocktail lounge in Jason Pomeranc's Sixty Soho hotel. It's the first of the hotel's dining venues to reopen since downtown hit-maker John McDonald took over all of them with partner Steven Eckler (former managing partner at The Red Cat and The Harrison) this past summer. The upstairs lobby lounge, which used to be Thom Bar, is now very modern and very stylish, outfitted with a wide array of mid-century furniture, a zinc bar, and one of those green walls covered in plants.

There's a small Italian-leaning menu of bar snacks like beef sliders with fries, arancini with prosciutto and pistachios, and pork sausage with tomato and pepper sauce to go with the drinks. Cocktails themselves range from a couple classics (a gimlet, a boulevardier) to a rum toddy, a brandy punch, and house cocktails like the Torres, made with kaffir-infused white rum, hibiscus, lime, and agave.

In February, McDonald will also open Sessanta, a coastal Italian restaurant, in the hotel space that until recently housed Kittichai.
