Really cool place

It's a really great place absolutely authentic. Especially if you come after a Broadway show you can enjoy great cocktails. We have been twice. It's pricy maybe little overrated but we thought it's worth the money.

Popped in here with friends from the city who are regulars. My first New York bar experience and it didn't disappoint - live music from a piano-saxophone-percussion trio, good cocktails and a warm atmosphere.

Do not recommend this bar for martini or manhattan drinkers....not drinkable! We thought we were going to hear piano music but the band that played with a banjo, etc. was too loud for the venue. Also my cell phone was misplaced and never returned, which can happen anywhere. For both reasons, it wa an overall bad experience and I would... More

Stopped in for a drink after the Broadway show and was shocked with the prices! My wife had a glass of wine and I had a rum and coke and it was $28 for the two drinks. Quaint little bar though and the piano player was very good!

This palace is really cool: jazz music live in combination with cocktails made by professional barmen. If you have doubts on what to drink just ask and they will help in chosing the cocktail in line with your style.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
