The Pegu Club, less than a 10-minute walk from 70 Charlton, has been famous since its 2005 opening for crafting the finest cocktails this side of its namesake in Yangyon, Myanmar. Owner Audrey Saunders knows that unforgettable cocktails are made by paying attention to every last detail, and that’s why customers will find their drinks made from fresh-squeezed juices, homemade infusions and tinctures, and the finest spirits. The bar itself takes inspiration from its Southeast Asian predecessor and cuts a striking figure with black wood and bottles peeking out from behind ornate sliding cutouts. The club even offers a small selection of bites, including sinful deviled eggs and sliders featuring high-end ingredients like scallops and duck.
Head south from 70 Charlton and you’ll soon arrive at The James Hotel, on top of which sits JIMMY, an iconic rooftop bar looking out over Soho. JIMMY is known for its strong drinks and lively social atmosphere, especially during the summer months when the outdoor pool is open. Inside, guests will find a retro barroom complete with leather detailing on the bar itself, functioning fireplaces, and a classically inspired cocktail menu alongside bar bites from a range of cuisines — everything from french fries to inside-out sushi rolls. Guests will love the terrace, with its teak wood decking and, of course, the panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, including a close-up look at One World Trade Center.
Residents of 70 Charlton who enjoy the dim ambience of intimate speakeasies will love the nearby haunt Up and Up. The bar only seats a few at a time, but once your turn comes you’ll never forget the cocktails cooked up by the mixologists, which are blended expertly with exotic spirits and ingredients, including cayenne pepper and rare bitters.
Not to be outdone by its neighbors, 70 Charlton itself is home to a few cozy spaces of its own, including a comfortable indoor lounge and the verdant courtyard with ivy walls and wood benches.
