Nestled on the second floor of The Time hotel is Inc Lounge, a tribute to the glamorous music, art, and club culture of the 1970s. The space caters to a Manhattan clientele of bankers, media personalities, and fashion lovers with a menu of cocktails such as a Gin & Sin and a Crimson Sunset. They're served amid Jody Singleton–designed furnishings of black Lucite chandeliers, white patent-leather settees, and red velvet couches. Orchid- and mermaid-themed wallpaper acts as an exotic precursor to a wall of mini plasma screens streaming arty video images. The DJ's beats get louder in the back room, where a black-and-red pool table draws groups of friendly competitors and sleepy club-goers who thought it was a big, comfy bed.
