Bemelmans Bar @ The Carlyle Hotel:
For over half a century, Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle Hotel has catered to New York’s finest. From socialites to screen stars, CEOs to politicos, the storied walls of Bemelmans have seen them all. With its gold-leaf ceiling and rich brown leather banquettes, this well-kept landmark has stayed true to its original art-deco scheme. The Central Park murals of Ludwig Bemelmans, illustrator of the “Madeline” children’s books, complete the bar’s timeless décor. In retro fashion, Bemelmans keeps holy the cocktail hour from 5:30pm to 8pm, and offers late-night music and eats every evening after 9:30pm. Ask the bartenders in crisp red jackets about the bar’s history and you’re sure to get an earful; many a VIP has warmed these barstools.
