A restaurant and bar located in the Stanhope Hotel, Nica's was designed with one-time resident, infamous socialite Pannonica de Koenigswarter, in mind.  Known as the “bebop baroness” of 1950s New York jazz, Nica became the fictional proprietor of the place; concert handbills for her friends Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker are seen pasted to the walls.  Period oil paintings are casually hung on top of traditional murals to create the sense of her taking over the existing bar.
