The Empire Hotel used to be one of our favorite places for a quiet cocktail--the lobby that is. The rooftop in summer is a scene worthy of Gossip Girl. Guess that's why the producers of our once favorite, now-resuscitating-itself show traded The Palace for The Empire, the hotel Chuck bought and is adding a hot club to. So it follows that the bar is now serving Gossip Girl-themed cocktails like S, B, I'm Chuck Bass, Lonely Boy and the Jenny Tartlet.
All this brush with fame should get the hotel ready for New York Fashion Week next September, when it's sure to become to Lincoln Center what the Bryant Park Hotel is to Bryant Park.
