Village Voice's Description

Creator of those Madeline books for children, Ludwig Bemelmans painted his only surviving public commission on the walls of this famous Art Deco lounge, a staple of the let-them-eat-cake set for more than fifty years. The beloved Audrey Saunders is the mixologist in residence here, concocting everything from a Gin-Gin Mule (gin, homemade ginger beer, fresh mint and lime juice) to the Valencia (Fino sherry, orange oil and gin garnished with a flaming orange peel).

Tips from foursquare

  • Tiffany & Co on 06/01/11

    This is the real thing. A place for Gotham insiders. Gold leaf ceilings and enchanting murals by Madeline author and illustrator Ludwig Bemelmans. Arrive by 8pm and take a small table near the piano.

  • Travel Channel on 11/14/11

    At the only place where Bemelman’s art work is publicly displayed, Tony has a martini saying “a room like this calls for a classic.” As seen on Travel Channel’s The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.

  • New York Habitat on 12/13/11

    Enter Bemelmans in the Carlyle Hotel through an unassuming door off the lobby. Expensive drinks but one of the finest atmospheres in the city, complete with dim lighting and a piano player.

  • Metromix on 03/11/11

    Named for artist & "Madeline" creator Lugwig Bemelmans, this Art Deco space serves up cocktails rarely found in today's bars, with a few dating back to the 1860's through Prohibition.

  • Esquire on 01/31/11

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Order a stinger. They'll be cold and crisp, with the cognac outweighing the crème de menthe, the way they should be.
