Bars: Bemelmans Bar
Bemelmans (named for the murals) at the Carlyle is one of the great old-school hotel bars: live music, a ritzy crowd and well-made, super-pricey, classic cocktails. Fun for a high-end Old New York evening, and the cabaret acts are often super, or super-weird. I have seen old men do Noel Coward shows, just sayin.' The food is exorbitant, btw; we usually start at the Veau d'Or and then head uptown!
