The Thom Bar is a stylish Soho lounge at the boutique 60 Thompson Hotel that is known for its excellent cocktails and elegant interior and for hosting fashionable celebrities in Manhattan, New York. Perfect for early cocktails or late night gatherings, the bar attracts an elegant, perfectly turned-out crowd, here you can find DJs spinning seven nights a week.
The sleek, modern Deco interior inspired by art deco, invites you to lounge on velvet banquettes, leather easy chairs or oversized ottomans and choose divine cocktails, such as the lychee martini, from the extensive list. The expert bartenders mix seasonally inspired drinks including a Thai iced tea martini, peach Bellini, or a vodka cocktail with cucumber and kiwi. The hotel’s onsite restaurant, Kittichai, prepares a menu of Asian influenced bar snacks such as Thai beef carpaccio, green papaya salad with chili cashew dressing, or crispy rock shrimp with sugar-tamarind sauce.
Thom Bar’s sleek candle lit interior features art deco influences like leather club chairs, hardwood paneling, and elaborate murals. The stunning marble fireplace makes the lounge a cozy destination for a date and the high ceilings provide great acoustics for nightly sets by local DJs. The style stakes by the equally glamorous staff that attracts celebrities including Jessica Simpson, Kirsten Dunst, Vin Diesel and Diane von Furstenberg.
The Bar continues to be an extremely popular downtown destination, so patrons seeking a more relaxed atmosphere should consider visiting on weekday nights. The band’s live shows are worth a visit just to see singer Chino Pons dancing, that has been compared to Fred Astaire and Michael Jackson.
