I wasn’t prepared for how completely beautiful the club was on the inside. It’s dark with a big chandelier in the bar with a marble top. There were lots of old-fashion drinks on the menu and the bartender, Josh was as vibrant as the Cubano...More

The “supper club” experience is still alive and well at The Carlyle Club. While our waiter left a lot to be desired, I was in awe of the venue. It really is reminiscent of times past where folks enjoyed good music and a good meal....More

The Club is nice, friendly staff but the worse and most expensive martinis we have ever tried. Music was ok and the overall experience with food was decent.

Hi, We will be in NY on 31 May 2010 and will be at the Carlyse Club (E76th and Madison) for a show until late in the evening (Probably around 11pm or midnight). I need to get to Philadeplphia (Society Hill Sheraton - One Dock Street, 2nd and Walnut Streets, Philadelphia) for a conference that starts on 1 June 2010 - morning. What would be the best way to get from NY to Philadelphia? We are happy to take a bus or train. We would prefer to travel after the show as we don't have a nights...More
