    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.

    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.

    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.

    Worth a visit, fingers crossed you get a seat. The drinks are great. Dark, old world, very sexy, and expensive, but that's the point. It's a stunning place. Definitely one of the city's hidden gems.

    The "dress code" apparently restricts jeans, t-shirts, and bags. So, 90% of the times you're at Grand Central you're not getting in.

    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.

    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.
