best ritzy yet tacky bar (2008)
At RISE AT THE BATTERY PARK RITZ CARLTON you can toast Lady Liberty with a martini generous enough for twothe bar, which sits on the 14th floor of the do-tell hotel, overlooks New York Harbor. Ritzy! Yet the decor more closely resembles that of a Motel 6 than a four-star establishment, and the service sucks. Tacky!
