Description

Village Voice's Description

Want to slurp up some fancy? Head to Grand Central's Campbell Apartment, the former private salon of millionaire John T. Campbell and now, expense-account den of the Westchester commuter. With its lovely dark wood walls, leaded window, and stone fireplace, the place resembles something out of a movie about the Gilded Age, where the filthily rich down a last drink before the fall of mankind. The florid descriptions of the "cocktails from another era" (the Robber Baron, the Flapper's Delight) sell a fairytale of an old Gotham Gatsbyland of daily cufflink use and men who pranced off the Monopoly gameboard. We recommend the $15 Prohibition Punch, which we learned was "reminiscent of the bootlegged punches of High Society." And fyi, leave the ripped jeans and sneakers at homeathe dress code is strictly enforced here.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Corcoran Group on 04/22/10

    Enter through Cipriani on the balcony at Grand Central & you'll feel as if you have entered a bygone era. Drinks are expensive ($15 martini) but the atmosphere is worth it. Reserve a table in advance.

  • Tristan L. on 03/11/09

    Find the hidden Campbell Apartment and have drinks by the fireplace.

  • Tiffany & Co on 06/01/11

    Yes, Mr. Campbell once lived here; and you are invited to come up and have a cocktail in his 1923 Florentine-style living room. The gifted mixologist behind the bar crafts a marvelous martini.

    Wikipedia says of Bartender Jack, "He mixes strongest, yet sweetest Old Fashioned this side of the Hudson." Ginger margarita was also great. The Prohibition Punch is basically a $17 scorpion bowl tho.

    The scene from Gossip Girl's infamous Shepard wedding where Serena & Nate do their deed in Season 1 was filmed here. Great place and great atmosphere.
