A fine mist of snow gently showered me and a friend during a recent night out. We weren't stranded on the curb waiting to get into the Hudson Hotel--rather, I was tucked into a sheepskin blanket, sitting on the rooftop bar in a winter wonderland of sorts. You see snow falls every night at the Hudson Lodge, an urban ski-resort themed bar deep in the heart of Manhattan. The tented space is decorated ski-lodge chic with rustic wood tables, fur pillows and blankets and a smattering of taxidermy for effect. We grabbed a sofa (not an easy thing to do) and ordered a round of drinks: a cold snowcone cocktail for me (childhood harkened and I couldn't resist) and a hot Chocolate Bon Bon cocktail for my friend. To eat, no run of the mill bar food here-we tucked into a green chili fondue and a S'more grilled cheese sandwich; so glad we didn't have to make a run down the slopes to get home!
Drink your dessert- The Chocolate Bon Bon is a decadent mix of Grand Marnier, Tequila, Hot Chocolate and Cream
Not your momma's grilled cheese-Nutella, ricotta, guyere and cheddar cheese with a drizzle of maple syrup
