    Wikipedia says of Bartender Jack, "He mixes strongest, yet sweetest Old Fashioned this side of the Hudson." Ginger margarita was also great. The Prohibition Punch is basically a $17 scorpion bowl tho.

    For the perfect Campbell experience, visit in the afternoon when crowds are lower and you can enjoy the gorgeous space and terrific jazz soundtrack. It gets pretty crazy busy and loud in the evening.

    A very cool concept, enter this hidden lounge and be transported into a classic '20s era with snazzy jazz old-school décor. Try their signature drink, Prohibition Punch.

    Isn’t speakeasy, but really hidden and real gem bar. One the best wine I tried here, intimate atmosphere with great visual interior support. Ideal for a date, serving food till 23:30

    Classic vibe done right. Tucked away in a quite corner of The GCT, The Campbell is old world charm. Such a Manhattan staple that is elegant and cool at all times. Drinks and ambience are timeless

    Classic drinks place. Once the office of a wealthy financier, workers who discovered it during a renovation thought it was an apartment because it had a shower. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The clientele is all upmarket, the drink prices are among NY's highest, and it gets crowded. But it's also a great place to meet and have a drink, or just getting together for an end-of-day cocktail.

    Try to go a bit off-hours so you can feel time slow down and relish the cocoon-like feel of the dark lounge. Do take note: proper attire is required (no jeans, sneakers, shorts, etc). Read more

    This cocktail destination has fallen on hard times, serving Absolut and supermarket Prosecco to indifferent Metro–North commuters. The room is still pretty, at least.

    Prohibition punch is really good & their goat cheese & sundried tomatoes flatbread pizza. Gossip girl scenes were shot here! Speakeasy inside grand central station!

    Old school New York. No jeans, no tshirts and amazing cocktails. Perfect place to start a fancy night on the town.

    If you are young and have tattoos please make sure youre dressed to the nines. I had the luxury of being stared at with laser death eyes from a 50 year old woman, her husband and their friends.

    Enter through Cipriani on the balcony at Grand Central & you'll feel as if you have entered a bygone era. Drinks are expensive ($15 martini) but the atmosphere is worth it. Reserve a table in advance.

    Beautiful space & extensive menu of "cocktails from another era.". Try the Prohibition Punch, sip at the bar or cozy up by the fireplace. http://MichelleC.tv

    A unique speakeasy attached to Grand Central Terminal with great cocktails. It's a wonderful after work spot or to bring a date. Try the prohibition punch.

    Formerly the office and salon of 1920s finance mogul John W. Campbell, the bar boasts a menu of gin-laden "cocktails from another era" like the Robber Baron and Flapper's Delight. Read more

    Pricy cocktails in Grand Central but a neat speakeasy feel for a more intimate get together than just bud lights at Beer Bar.

    The space was once the office of American financier John W. Campbell, a member of the New York Central Railroad's board of directors. Great atmosphere, waitresses in black dresses and pearls are cute.

    A classy stomping ground for the well-heeled professionals who can afford the pricey drinks. Your best tactic: dress up and carry a $20.just enough for one drink. If you don't score after that, leave.

    Great spot next to GCT for drinks, though a bit pricey. Ambience and service rock. Try the chicken quesadillas (tangy) and the truffle popcorn.

    Yes, you can probably find a better and cheaper cocktail elsewhere. But you come to the legendary Campbell Apartment, which is located literally within Grand Central, for the history.

    Walk-up possible, reservation is better. Dress appropriately. This bar takes you back in time. The prohibition punch is pricey (20$), but the best drink you'll taste in Manhattan.

    Had to try the prohibition punch after a guy at the bar tried to sell it to me and I must say it was worth it! Have the prohibition punch when your at this bar.

    One of the few strong midtown cocktail spots that I can think of. Drinks are fine, but it's a great space for the area.

    the $19 prohibition punch is so worth it! they pour in fancy champagne to top off your glass when they bring it to you... as you watch from your red plush chair!

    The cocktails are not cheap but you're paying for well-made drinks in an amazing setting so it's well worth it. Sad to see it close

    Wow, this place is great. Lively but not crowded, pricey but not outrageous, dark but not hard to see. Live jazz played (maybe a bit too loud), but service was great. Try the bayerd fizz or punch.

    Gorgeous place, looks like they stole the ceiling from a Tibetan temple or some such. There was a jazz duo when we were there, delightful!

    To step back into the 1920s, head to this swanky spot somewhat hidden inside Grand Central. These days the stylish 25-foot-high room attracts an upscale crowd. Try the "Flapper's Delight" cocktail.

    One of my favorite bars.Fantastic cocktails, attentive staff, and great ambiance. A little snobby (no jeans/sneakers) and expensive-but totally worth it for at least one drink.

    As if you enter the Gryffindor dormitory room at Hogwarts, but then hidden away in Grand Central Station. In short; AWESOME!

    Stick to the cocktails on the menu, and specify your spirits, they go for the cheap stuff if you don't ask. You're paying for the ambiance, not the bar.

    Yes, Mr. Campbell once lived here; and you are invited to come up and have a cocktail in his 1923 Florentine-style living room. The gifted mixologist behind the bar crafts a marvelous martini.

    In Grand Central Station and is a testament to the grandiosity of a different area. The space originally served as a private salon for 1920′s financial mogul John W. Campbell.

    If you're here for cocktails, it's overpriced, even for cocktails in New York. If you're here for the scenery, stick around; it's stunning.

    Even longtime New Yorkers may not be privvy to this secluded spot. Come here to unwind after work or to stargaze (Jay-Z & Eddie Vedder are fans)
