Fodor's Expert Review The Chandelier
True to its name, this swanky lounge sits in a chandelier with 2 million crystal beads, making it the largest chandelier in town (and, perhaps, the world). The bar is separated into three separate levels, and each has a different theme. The ground floor—dubbed "Bottom of the Chandelier," for those of you scoring at home—is dedicated to intricate specialty drinks, the kinds of cocktails you'll find only here. The second floor pays homage to molecular gastronomy in cocktail form; spiked sorbets and dehydrated fruits are common in drinks here. Finally, at the top of the Chandelier, everything's coming up floral, with rose and lavender syrups and violet sugar. If you're particularly adventuresome (and you can get a seat on the first floor), try the off-menu Verbena cocktail with a "Szechuan button." This desiccated flower from Africa numbs your mouth to make flavors more potent; it also prompts you to down your cocktail in mere seconds.
