Midtown East

Things to do in Midtown East

Tucked inside the storied St. Regis Hotel, this high-class watering hole—named after the whimsical Maxfield Parrish mural behind the bar—is one of the best places to channel Astor-era New York. (And you'll wish you were an Astor when the bill arrives.) What else to order but a Red Snapper?

This clubby jewel box of a bar, hidden inside Grand Central Terminal, was the long-abandoned office and salon of millionaire magnate and railroad bigwig John W. Campbell (and not his home, despite the name).

The restoration of this beautiful Beaux-Arts behemoth in the late 1990's has created the perfect place to enjoy a drink or dinner while watching commuters race for their trains.
