Since the Raines Law Room on 17th St opened in 2009, it has become an institution in the New York speakeasy scene. Raines Law Room at The William is the sister parlor, a decadent spot where you can sip on cocktails steps from Grand Central. With its mahogany paneling, gold-faceted ceiling and open fireplace, the feeling here is unpretentious yet upscale; a cherished hallmark of juxtapositions across social decorum. The space will feel exclusive without excluding. Whether enjoying pre-dinner cocktails or a simple meet-up with an old friend, guests will enjoy traditionally inspired classics from a thoughtfully put-together cocktail list as well as friendly, unobtrusive service.
