We walked in on a private birthday party so we only stayed long enough to look around at the iconic walls. A treat if you are a Madeline fan.
Great old school New York hotel bar. Have a martini and have a blast. Very traditional with great bartenders. Check out the murals. Cafe Carlyle across the way has some great shows. You can't go wrong!
Best martini in town! Bemelmans Bar travels beyond tradition to a glimpse into a bygone era. It's not to be missed for the graceful ice crystals floating like a heavenly choir in your gin to the perfect nibbles for a salty/sweet start or finish to your evening. It's a classic!
Across from the mark, visit the legendary Carlyle hotel, where Woody Allen plays once a week. The experience is worth the money even though I was not pleased to have other customers so close to my table. They will squeeze as many tables and as many heads as they can that only night of the week. Worth to go just... More
CLASSIC UES nightspot. Loston Harris is worth 2X the $30 cover charge. Cocktails are perfect; bar snacks excellent. Can't remember if this is our 10th or 12th visit; ALWAYS a highlight of any trip to NYC. The only downside is that 50% of the patrons were too casually dressed. Dress up America!!! Have some style and grace and realize that... More

We also got a high bar tab, but if you understand & accept that going in, it will be worth... More

The day after the wedding, my friend and I wanted a low key night so we went and sat at the bar. There was a... More
A classic New York experience with friendly patrons, and energetic and skilled jazz combo, excellent staff and fine drinks all wrapped up in historic and amusing murals transporting one back to a different era and yet, still very current. A first rate experience.
A normal place during the week except for 1 day, when Woody Allen is there paying. It is so packed that you will pay more than $100 for a simple menu and sit between two people you´ve never met as every inch counts.
We got dressed up and headed to The Carlyle Hotel to drink expensive cocktails at Bemelmans Bar. Diane was lucky enough to find a seat at the bar right away and I eventually got one next to her. Drinks are expensive but we knew that and each had only a couple of $21 cocktails. Diane has been on a cosmopolitan... More
