The story of this place, its location and the decor make this a wonderful stop if you're in the Grand Central Station area. With your sweetheart or a group of people, you'll feel transported back to the Gilded Age of train travel and speakeasies.

I like the Cambell Apartment's atmosphere and take business associates who have never been to it for a drink now and then but, honestly, I think it gets by primarily on it's location and atmosphere. I've never been overly impressed by the quality of the drinks and prices are on the high side even for New York. It's a place... More

An elegant 'secret private escape' built by a jazz-age magnate, now open to the public as a bar and restaurant. Didn't partake, but the decor is magnificent and worth taking a peek.

Just loved this place, yes cocktails are on the high end, but it's ambiance makes it worth every penny. Apple Martini was excellent and bartender let my friend try about 6 wines, until she found what she liked. Can be noisy, but that makes it all the more easy to get in conversations with strangers.....fun! Be dressed ladies and gentlemen... More

The Campbell Apartment is a great place to stop if you staying near Grand Central. With a menu of period cocktails and the dark wood decor of a 1920s mogul's library, it is an experience. Try the signature Prohibition Punch and pretend you have just entered the Roaring 20s.

We only had drinks at CA, but what a beautiful spot! Restored to original elegance and full of cool people. Made us feel like we had entered a very special place. Great seating areas as well as a nice bar. Very efficient staff.

This architecture and history of this place is amazing, but they need to give the bar area a solid cleaning. We sat by the bar and ordered Manhattans which were fine, however there was a horrible garbage smell coming from behind the bar. We downed our drinks a left. Ruined our visit.

Very good cocktails from a short menu, nibbles type food (although the charcuterie plate was huge - way too much for one person). Good service, music at a good level. Only real criticisms were that it was quite chilly and a bit dark. It's also expensive, but I expected that.

Very cool bar hidden in Grand Central Station - not sure you would find it unless told about it. They play great music & the drinks are always good. The downside is it is pretty noisy & the service can be hit and miss. That being said it is pretty unique & well worth a visit.

Went for drinks with a relative. Was looking for a place that would have nice atmosphere and be quiet enough that we could chat and catch up. Big mistake. The atmosphere is very old world feel which I liked and there was a trio playing which was nice but for some reason in this small room it was so noisy... More

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.
