Not Fighting the Crowds at the Dream Hotel
Last month sis site Jaunted paid a visit to the midtown Dream hotel and the next-door restaurant, Amalia. We decided to check the space out, too, but we didn't go for dinner. We snuck downstairs to the bar/lounge D'Or to really make the scene.
Or so we thought. Turns out, we were the scene--the only folks in the bar. Now, we admit we were there early in the night. But when we chatted with an employee, he told us things only really buzz for a couple hours a night: Between 11 and 1 is your best bet. Then again, maybe you'd like a quieter New York hotel scene than you find downtown.
