You barely have to leave the hotel bar to feel like you’ve had a night out on the town at this 19-room boutique hotel, which seems to absorb the neighborhood’s buzzy vibe. Mid-century furnishings, a rose petal turndown service, and, yes, even a pleasure menu put the Drake firmly in the cool category as far as hotels go. While the Drake is primarily a hotel, it operates like a type of community gathering place with its own concert venue, an extremely popular rooftop bar, an omakase-based sushi joint, and a rotating roster of art exhibits.
