Black Calavados, known as “BC” to its trendsetting devotees, is a sleek bar where the party starts late (don’t bother coming before 1 am) and lasts until morning. Ring the buzzer out front for the doorman to assess your worth—this is a celebrity hangout. Inside, try the Black Kiss, a shot of black vodka served on ice with sugar-cube lips. If all else fails, head upstairs to the smaller but equally sexy Blitz tequila bar.
