Named in commemoration of commissioned artist Ludvig Bemelman, this elegant piano bar was always going to be the defining legacy of The Carlyle. The 80-year old hotel located on the Upper East Side has been an architectural marvel since it’s opening in 1930, and a residency for world leaders, ambassadors and the elite. Overlooking the spectacular verdant space of Central Park, the hotel affords some of the most beautiful panoramic views over the landscapes, and sets a precedent when it comes to luxury.
Bemelman’s Bar is sumptuously decorated in the art-deco style complete with smoky glass tables, leather upholstering and “leg-up” high stools in dark wood. Bemelman’s artistic legacy is apparent as soon as you walk into the bar. Walls feature painted murals of rabbits and parkland animals, while the most striking feature – the ceiling, is finished in 24 carat gold-leaf. With it;s rosy ambiance and sophisticated demeanor, Bemelman’s Bar is the perfect place to experience the luxury New York has on offer.
