    It was shot at Viceroy, on 8th avenue in Chelsea.

      The bistro at the end of the commercial (where he walks in) is definitely Viceroy, but not the entire commercial. I first thought either Bar Six or La Belle Vie, but i don't think it's either one. Fun question!

          Yes! You're totally right, def Belle Vie for the majority of the ad.

      Loved this question. I wish I'd recognized the place but I'd never been to Belle Vie. Definitely not Bar Six, and yeah, once you mentioned it the entry way does look like Viceroy.

      Wish we had more of these.
