As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make a glass or two on us, you deserve it.


La Piscine’s Peligrosa
Post-Frieze drinks go-to (and rest-of-the-year hotspot) in New York City, Hotel Americano recently opened its sexy rooftop restaurant and poolside bar, La Piscine. As our own personal sort of cheers, we’re saying welcome back to the neighborhood with a full glass pitcher of La Piscine’s Peligrosa, a refreshing resurrection from the sweltering sun with its own tease of heat.
