Take a trip back in time in the swanky, former private office of a NY business mogul, hidden inside magnificent Grand Central Station! John W. Campbell's old digs have been restored to their elegant 1920s selves, with enormous ornate ceilings, upholstered couches and thick carpets. It's hard to believe that someone thought it was a good idea to close it and use it for storage.
Weekday evenings sees it filled with suited types ordering from the prohibition style menu before their commutes home, we prefer it on the weekends when you can sink into the couch by the massive stone fireplace, drinking wine and munching on appetizers. The free bar snacks come in the form of popcorn, from a vintage popcorn machine of course. Oh, and there's a new terrace, but we kinda prefer the one-of-a-kind space inside.
A couple of warnings from BarChick - they have a strict dress code, check their website for more details, and call before you go, sometimes they're closed for private events.
