We went into barneys to try and get my wife a pair of louboutins for her 30th birthday from the shoe dept but staff were unhelpful and uninterested in helping us so we went elsewhere.

This store is amazing! Some of the items, Gucci shoes were over $2000 but were gorgeous! This is a real high end store but worth looking around!

Don't miss their amazing renovated beauty and cosmetics section. I've never seen anything like it anywhere in the world. Stunningly beautiful, and a phenomenal range.

Simply put Barneys is one of the most amazing department stores in the world. The nicest ones I had seen prior to this were in Japan, but Barneys New York is on the same level. It doesn't have a special vibe like many classic department stores in Europe, but the selection of products is just outstanding. Big kudos to the... More

Barneys can be overwhelming, particularly when you look at the price tags on the ready to wear. However, if you want to get an idea what is considered fashion, this edited version from the cat walks of London, MIlan and Paris will provide a quick overview. In addition to RTW, shoes, jewellery, and handbags feature strongly. The beauty department has... More

Lots of different high-priced designers very interesting collections. If you love designers a "must go" place. If floor had the most interesting Café. You ordered off of your table by tapping what you were interested in purchasing. Great sodas made with pure cane sugar no artificial sweeteners.

Barney's do sell more than shoes, however I bought three pairs there - high end shoes, to die for. Also, divine makeup, and bags (the Americans call them purses), and clothes. If you're from Australia, it's like a high end David Jones and well worth the visit. Note that the staff work on commission. Make sure they earn it ;)

Yup, it is expensive. So go during one of the twice yearly sales and save big bucks. Yup, the place seems to sell only " doll clothes" that do not fit most of the world. Well, buy ties, socks and shoes. But the problem they cannot solve? The place is an un- navigable mess. If you are shopping with someone... More

The stuff is high quality, but quality cannot possibly rationalize the prices for merchandise at this establishment. A place for a poser to tell people he shops at.

Clean, well decorated and signposted warehouse. The men's shoe department was overwhelming, so much choice and good price range, very international indeed. Quick waiter mobile payservice so no waiting time a a counter, bill is sent to private email address directly too. Very efficient.
