About
Although The Bar Room is a newcomer to the Upper East Side, the restaurant's historical design elements inspire the feeling of a classic neighborhood mainstay. From the African Mahogany bar that spent over a century in Harvey's Chelsea, to the 1920s Parisian light fixtures that lined the river Seine, the detailed decor creates an elegant yet relaxed ambiance. For private dining guests, the full menu of New American fare includes decadent entrees like grilled rib eye with bone marrow, braised short ribs and pan seared scallops. Our knowledgeable staff informs guests on dish pairings with a select variety of wines, spirits and classic cocktails to compliment each flavor and palette preference.

We were looking for a local bar scene and this was recommended by our Concierge from The Pierre. It didn't disappoint. Selina, the bartender was both attentive and friendly. Great place to wind down after a busy day. Highly recommend.

Visited for brunch and really enjoyed the omelette. It was served with hash browns and salad. Staff were attentive and filling up our water glasses when needed and service was smooth. I loved the artwork along the top of the ceiling.
