Whiskey Blue Restaurant Review

: You don’t have to be a registered guest at the swanky W Hotel to partake in the libations at this Midtown club---in fact, some might actually call this lounge welcoming. Rande Gerber owns this nightclub (he also owns Underbar and The Whiskey in two of the city's other W hotels), and you'd be forgiven if you mistook the leather pants-clad, knee-high-boots-wearing servers for one of the regulars (but don't expect to get a smile out of the staff). Tie-loosened steam-blowers and media types quaff colorful cocktails in a dimly lit room.
