Even if Noir often ends up being my back-up-plan as opposed to my go-to bar, it still remains one of the best places to meet for a post-work cocktail or a late-night rendezvous. Maybe I’m just a sucker for the film noir theme, but it’s more likely due to the fact that this place is convenient, affordable and has just the right amount swank.
The cocktails are always tops and the bar menu has just the right amount of good eats to make sure those drinks don’t go right to your head. In the dead of Winter, it can be easy to forget it exists, as it’s tucked into a tiny little corner of the Charles Hotel. Come bird-and-bee-time, however, it’s a swell place to sit outside with a martini and a clove cigarette, looking all dark and mysterious.
