The Oak Bar

Ink the deal over well-mixed drinks served by a superb waitstaff. The bar’s high ceilings and oak-paneled walls provide an elegant setting for serious business chatter, and the spacious table arrangements keep everything discreet. Head into the adjoining Oak Room for steaks (see Best Steakhouse).
