As midtown New York City lounges go, Ava holds a lofty perch -- set high atop Dream New York. Named after movie star Ava Gardner, this fabulous New York City bar lounge matches the exotic femme fatale step for step in sex appeal and allure. The décor is an eclectic mix of 1950s retro and French Riviera styles, with sculpted walls, bench seats, and black and white floors. Outdoors, a wood planked seasonal terrace offers stunning views of the Upper West Side skyline above and the Hudson River below. This is a place to relax, movie-star style.
