Barney's is great! If you have the money to spent I say go to Barney's they have everything! It's the greatest store with the newest trends. I'm not sure the sales help is that helpful but the merchandise speaks for it's self. It's a magical place!

Ok, I'm a bit frugal, yet my mother brought me to Barney's way back when, thus when deciding to shop for my son's first suit, we opted for Barney's. I believe we'd made it to the 5th floor of the Madison Ave store, and was quite impressed with the style, and level of service. The floor people were friendly, knowledgeable... More

The first thing I'll say about Barney's is: Wow! Great brands! Very lovely and creative layout! Super friendly and helpful staff! The second is you could bump into someone famous when you're there (worth the experience) The last thing I'll say is this: People say Barney's is pricey and I agree but there are so many other great things you...

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.
