    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.

    The scene from Gossip Girl's infamous Shepard wedding where Serena & Nate do their deed in Season 1 was filmed here. Great place and great atmosphere.

  • New York Habitat

    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.

    Little known historical fact: Serena van der Woodsen once had sex with Nate Archibald on the bar.

    Great place for speak-easy ambiance and well-done cocktails.

    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.

    Swank cocktail place... Must try the Prohibition Punch. Also, don't forget to look up and check-out the ceiling. Beautiful spot.

    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.

    Ask for a Sidecar. Not on the menu and looks girls, but packs a punch.

    Try to make your way up the secret service elevator. It's way more exciting then walking through the front door downstairs. Delicious mixed drinks and such a beautiful interior.

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

    Great place to grab a drink before catching a train back to the outerboroughs/suburbs

  • Hotel Tonight

    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.

    Kentucky Ginger is amazing

    You can't wear jeans. Take the elevator next to grand central oyster. Bring in snacks from grand central market. Act like you're in Gossip Girl.

    Really beautiful setting (and ceiling). The prohibition punch is overrated in terms of taste, underrated in terms of strength.

    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.

    Prohibition Punch is highly recommended!

    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!

    Все как написано в афише, камин оказался только для украшения :( несмотря на ранний для посещения бара час, еще находятся любители махнуть коктейль в исторических интерьерах
