A resident pianist provides genteel entertainment in the dapper Cristal (from 9pm except Saturday). Dressed in polished oak and illuminated by candlelight and a fireplace, this is a haven of old-world charm in the heart of a frenetic city. Whisky and cigars are de rigueur for men, while the ladies sip French champagne.
For sophistication on the cheap, come during the two-for-one happy hour (5pm to 8pm) or Monday's Ladies Night, when women sip free bubbly.
