    The bar is nice, of that there is no doubt. Apparently the birthplace of the Bloody Mary. The Red Snapper is heir house version of the brunch classic. It's good but you expect fireworks for $25!!!

    Got the Shogun Mary, wasn't impressed. A gin martini with tomato juice, for the price of a entree at most places. It wasn't very busy and we weren't waited on very attentively

    Perfect for special occasions and raising a glass to loved ones. Perfectly made drinks with the most well-dressed bar staff in town. All under the gaze of King Cole, painted by Maxfield Parrish.

    They may have invemeted the Bloody Mary here, but the is no clue of it in the pale "tomato juice , pepper and vodka" version of it here + Barman was rude. 2/10 #dissatisfied #imakebetterbloodymary

    Not as good as it used to be. If you're not a regular expect poor service. Drinks used to be stiffer, now just overpriced.

    This spot is considered the birthplace of the Bloody Mary, or so the story goes. The bar serves their Snappers a bit pricey but they come with tasty gourmet nuts, wasabi peas and a slice of history. Read more

    Here a fine old-school barman will give you a nice gin pour and crack open your own bottle of cold tonic. Enjoy the Max Parrish mural, said to depict Old King Cole passing wind! Read more

    KCB&S is the spot where the first-ever Bloody Mary was served (though back in the '30s, it was known as the 'Red Snapper'). Essential Cocktail: The Bloody Mary

    No matter the time of day order a Bloody Mary. They are said to have been 1st served here. If a traditional bloody is not your thing, no worries. There's a diff one for each city that has a St Regis.

    “The menu features six kinds of Bloody Mary, which the King Cole claims to have invented in the nineteen-thirties. They call the original the Red Snapper, and it’s spicy, irresistible, and strong.” Read more

    The Red Snapper (the original Bloody Mary) is extremely tasty, quite spicy but not overly so. Also goes great with the tuna if you're looking for a snack.

    The King Cole Bar is great for business meetings - elegant, quiet, and historic. In 1934, the Bloody Mary was created here. The St. Regis is part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, a FORTUNE 500 company.

    Upscale hotel bars are some of my favorite places to go for drinks-St. Regis is no exception. BE SURE to ask the bartender for the secret behind the mural at the bar -you'll never look at it the same!

    WARNING: Do NOT order the mediterranean appetizer. The bread is cold and the Prosciutto is way too salty.
