“Gorgeous and Glam Cocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

You're right in the middle of the hub-bub of Grand Central, yet you're also a million miles away. The Campbell Apartment feels like a secret, though of course it isn't. It's dark, gorgeous, and lush. I'm so glad that we whiled away an evening in the back of this place. It's not a cheap dive, of course, so bring that credit card-- but every sip is worth it for ambiance alone.

“Classy joint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

We met a lady when we were in Grand Central Station (don't all great stories start like this??) and she suggested that if we wanted to go for a drink we should go to the Campbell Apartment. She warned the cocktails were expensive but it was worth it. And she was right. It's very dark in a London club sort of way with lots of wood panelling and leather sofas. The bar man was chatty and funny and the cocktails were great. Definitely worth a visit, but don't stay too long or your bank manager may not like you!

“You can feel the history in this place. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Relaxed atmosphere compared to "go to be seen locations". If from out of town, make sure to read about history of establishment. Great drinks, music, and crowd.

This little bar alongside the west side of Grand Central Station on promenade level a lush reminder of NYC luxury in robber baron days, terrific signature cocktails and great opportunity to feel pulse of gilded age NYC

“Best cocktail i have ever had ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

8 of us visited Campbells Apartment for pre dinner drinks. Atmosphere was fantastic. Service was good and the Prohibition punch was the best cocktail i have ever tasted. Would highly recommend. Go to Grand Central Station and follow the signs.
