Bemelmans Bar
Named after Ludwig Bemelmans, who created the Madeline books and painted the bar's famous murals, Bemelmans Bar is one of New York City's classic piano bars. The gold leaf-covered ceiling and black granite bar combine to create an elegant environment for sampling classic cocktails. Live entertainment Tues - Sat from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. & 9:30 - 12:30 p.m.

The Bar at Bull & Bear
Best known for its beautiful mahogany bar, the Waldorf=Astoria's Bull & Bear is also credited with creating the Robb Roy and the Bronx Cocktail. The Bull & Bear keeps investment bankers and financial types comfortable with a stock-market ticker and tables the color of money.

Once popular with famous writers, including James Joyce, Jack Kerouac, and J.D. Salinger, their pictures now cover the walls of this former speak-easy in the West Village. Look carefully for this unmarked bar, which serves affordable drinks, tasty bar food and even has a working fireplace. Popular with the NYU crowd, you can avoid the co-eds by going in the afternoon or early evening.

King Cole Bar
Located in the St. Regis Hotel, the King Cole Bar is popular with guests and non-guests alike. The Red Snapper (better known as a Bloody Mary) was invented here, amidst the Max field Parrish mural depicting Old King Cole.

The Oak Bar at the Plaza - Currently Closed for Renovation
Impressionist murals by Everett Shinn depict New York City scenes on the walls, but the classic cocktails and oak panels stand out at this classic New York drinking establishment. Featured in the opening scenes of North by Northwest, the Oak Bar has been an important meeting place since it opened in 1907.
