A classic intellectual haven
One might imagine Oscar Wilde seated at this bar if he were alive today — or Mad Men’s Don Draper having a two-martini lunch. Tucked off The Gray Hotel lobby, Vol. 39 is at once opulent and intimate, a blend of dignity and glamour with a pinch of audacity. Named after the vintage leather-bound encyclopedias found during the building’s renovation, the bar is reminiscent of a law library graced with plush seating, dark Chevron wood floors and petite spotlights. As the hotel so eloquently stated, “If the bar were a book, it’d be an old favorite, the kind you re-read again and again.” Winner of the International Hotel & Property Award 2017.
