Two E at The Pierre Hotel

Citysearch asked me to take a look at this super swanky lounge, located inside the historic (but recently renovated) Pierre Hotel. We love Ringo, the bartender! You rock, sir!

The Gates

This fascinating club features a membership program...but the inside has some of the best people watching you can dream up (think male models in 80s Ts drooling over dainty small plates). Citysearch had me check it out...let me know what you think, if you can clear the velvet ropes.

Griffin NYC

Citysearch had me check out the newest MePa speakeasy...and it had a surprisingly easy door.

Palace Gate NYC

What could be better than Gossip Girl, champagne, and al fresco drinking? You'll find all 3 at this outdoor lounge (the sometimes-set of Gossip Girl). Citysearch had me write up Palace Gate, the patio space outside the swanky Palace Hotel.

Edison Ballroom NYC

Fans of swing can do their thing at this swanky (if older) ballroom (located in a historic Midtown hotel). I reviewed this spot for Citysearch, and wish I had practised my ballroom dancing skills!

Forty Eight NYC

Wondering where to drink near Rock Center? I've got your home base. Check out my review of 48 for citysearch.

Project Runway Party (and Fashion Show) at Touch

Photos by Trel Brock

We heart fashion week. Especially when it involves fun parties at lounges we love, like Touch.

Known for its convenient midtown location and cool bar that lights up when you touch it (not to mention the color-changing walls), Touch hosted Project Runway contestant Ra'mon Lawrence's fashion show on Friday. Loved it!

The creative designer presented his colorful 2010 Spring collection, where models were outfitted in bright draped dresses, and boys in khaki shorts and festive shirts.

There were Grey Goose cocktails on hand, along with plenty of Piper Heidsieck champagne.
Familiar faces in the show included an ANTM alum (last season's Celia Ammerman), and a star from the Bold & the Beautiful, Heather Tom.
We sat next to Shaq's wife, Shaunie O'Neal. I was tempted to tell her to tell her husband how much Kazaam meant to me, but I held back.
