The Living Room, just outside of The Back Room at One57, has the atmosphere of an elegant New York apartment and its comfortable couches will make you feel right at home. The bar overlooks Carnegie Hall and features a small bites menu perfect for a pre-theatre meal. The bar has a particularly wide selection of champagnes, as well as an eye-catching cocktail list.
One notable cocktail is their gin and tonic, which comes in a goblet-like glass with an array of fruits and spices that elevate the classic drink. During the day, The Living Room is a perfect place to refuel with coffee between museum visits and gallery hopping. The spacious layout means that even when the bar is crowded you won’t feel cramped. In fact, it’s easy to think your table is the only one in the room.
