Kenny made us the best Manhattan that I have had coast to coast. As a bourbon chaser, I appreciate a nicely mixed bourbon cocktail. Come visit. You won't be disappointed. Empire lobby bar!

The decor was pleasant and gave good service. The seating and bar stools are comfy and welcomed after walking NY!! As with other hotels the bar prices are higher than outside bars, restaurants etc.
