Hotel Place D’armes Montreal

This is a really cool hotel in Old Montreal called Hotel Place D’Armes. It is right near the Basilica church and a great location to get around the city.

As you walk into the grand hotel situated on a corner, you go through to a ground level lobby with a restaurant and bar. You walk past this to the elevators to get to the terrace.

On the top of the hotel is a great terrace where you can have cocktails and some light food, watch the sunset and enjoy the music as well as the view.

It has a nice energy and the staff were friendly (except for the door girl). Lately I find that door girls are a lot less friendlier than male ones, but then again, that is a very big generalization and only a recent observation.

I ordered a Basilic Rose cocktail with Grand Marnier, Basil, Bacardi, and cranberry juice. A very nice mix.

The Gansevoort Views of NYC

I love The Gansevoort Hotel. It is going to be a shame when summer ends because this rooftop bar in summer is bloody awesome. The fact my friend works there is also a great thing because it makes the experience even better.

The views are so good. The Hotel is located in the meatpacking district on Gansevoort Ave. its near the corner of 13th St, and 9th Ave, Meatpacking District. You need to take the elevator up to the PentHouse Floor (PH).

Inside the Bar, My friend Adriana working with the sunnies.

They make great cocktail and the whole rooftop bar wraps around the whole top floor so you can walk around. There are lounges around the side and lounges with a smoking area at the other end. On sunday afternoons they have summer parties in the summer period and a great DJ is playing too. So many female djs in NYC is the norm. So When you come to NYC, come and check out this place. It rocks and is just plain simply a cool place to be.

Here are the shots as the sun going down.

When you’ve had a few cocktails and you are with julian, you will always end up at an all American Diner coz he loves them. This one was so red it was like a brothel. They made great sweat potato fries.
