a.lounge, a warmly lit and intimate space is a perfect respite and gathering place for AKA residents, featuring relaxed seating areas, quiet nooks, and two fireplaces as a focal point. The Central Park lounge has a modernist cocoon-like vibe with lowered ceilings; custom-woven Nepalese carpets; hand-rubbed, custom-stained maple floors. Modern music and sensuous lighting make this one of the finest lounge bars NYC has to offer.
Experienced mixologists serve contemporary cocktails, expertly shaken or stirred martinis, and a carefully curated selection of natural wines, micro-brew beers, and artisan spirits. The house specialty is a.vod crafted exclusively for the lounge by Marko Karakasevic, a 13th generation master distiller, at Charbay recently honored by Food & Wine Magazine as Vodka of the Year and by Spirit Journal as the #1 Vodka in the World.
The lounge, accessible from the lobby of AKA’s furnished apartments in NYC, is open from 5:00 p.m. until late night seven days a week.
