It’s a historic NY landmark and hotel that has maintained the highest level of service. The Carlyle defines hospitality/luxury hospitality.

A classy NYC bar straight out of the Art Deco era. They have live music a lot of the time, which, when I was there, was lovely piano jazz. The wait staff is very courteous, and the drinks are splendid! This is a great place to bring someone special, or to show friends from out of town. More...

A Great underground bar with such a great vibe and Great Jazz music! Great for the grown and sexy! We enjoyed this spot on our visit to the beautiful San Diego!

THIRTIES NEW YORK must have felt like Bemelmans, though the murals are later, and it is possible amid the cocktails and old-school servers to imagine it so. The pianists help the illusion a lot. Forget the economics of that era, and be Cole Porter before the fall for the evening. Dress your best. Mind your manners. Display wit, or defer to those who do. More...

Classic bar with endless snacks. Great selection of single malt scotch and Irish. Live Piano player adds to ambiance and the art murals are interesting. Appetizer fare well worth a try.



25 April 2019

I highly recommend a trip to Bemelmans to all when in NYC. It is one of the last Bastion of a age gone by....so pretend your in the jazz age and get dressed up. One of the few places a man can wear black tie and look dashing...though not at a wedding. Drinks are pricey but excellent, music is always super...and you never know who will be here..during the 80's I worked on Wall Street and met various well known people...Had Mick Jagger buy me a drink once...and talked to Omar Sharif about cards one night. These places are few and far between now..enjoy it while you still can. More...

It's the only hotel we stay in when we visit NYC. There simply is no other place with this level of style, elegance and superb service.

We look forward to coming here for a few drinks every time we come to NYC. They really know what they're doing at Bemelmans. The service is very good, friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Some folks will likely find it a touch pricey but for the extra $$$ you really do get cocktails that are a cut above the rest. Where you might need to request that extra special vermouth in your Manhattan elsewhere, they already make it with that at Bemelmans. The bar has music (Jazz related) all the time and very often you've got a Grammy winner playing. Add in the exceptionally unique decor (not an easy task in this city) and you have the perfect place for a drink. Truly a New York best! More...



26 March 2019

One of the most amazing places to go in NYC. Be prepared to pay the cover charge and for all that is holy - dress nice!!! There is always a mix of locals and tourists here listening to the live music and enjoying a drink. There is just something so New York about this place. The atmosphere is fantastic and you never know who you’ll run into here. The employees at Bemelmans are outstanding and always deliver great service. More...

The details, the service, the history and the emotional experience you get from walking through the door of The Carlyle is what makes it exquisite! The Concierge was extremely helpful. The waiters in the cafe Carlyle and Bemelman’s bar were the best I’ve ever experienced! The service is top notch at the Carlyle! We will definitely be back. More...

My husband and I just returned from a short stay @ the Carlyle for our 7 year Anniversary. Everything was simply superb. The room was gorgeous -- I'm currently thinking of how I can recreate the ambiance here @ home �, the staff were dressed to impress and super accommodating, the drinks @ the bar and high tea were great, and the service was unparalleled. We can't wait to go back! More...

For years I have wanted to stay at The Carlyle. As I was returning to the states having sailed the Queen Mary 2 from NYC to the UK I stayed one night at the Carlyle. I was not disappointed! The staff...from the front desk, to the elevator attendants, to the doormen, to the Bemelman staff, to the breakfast staff....everyone made our stay absolutely wonderful....even if just there for twelve hours! The room was nicely appointed and we were very comfortable. At the club, I was disappointed that many intoxicated women were singing along with the performer and allowed to act as they did...screaming and making quite a noise. Considering the cover charge, I would expect a more refined clientele and a staff that would keep people in line for the enjoyment of all. Nevertheless, I would definitely stay at the property again...but probably not go to the club. More...

We have enjoyed this first class act hotel so much. From check in to cafe carlye dining to bemmelmans bar to breakfast to high tea it has been a real The customer is always first experience. You are treated like a king and queen here. We were fortunate to stay in the James Cagney suite ! Can u imagine if all these walls could talk. I feel like we are stepping back in time. A time of real glamour yet in a low profile way. I am in awe of this magnificent NYC beauty and the fine gentlemen in their white gloves. That take us to our designated floors. I can't wait for the two of us to return. #tryityoumightlikeit More...

The Carlyle is a special place. Service is always exceptional. Bemelmen's Bar and the Cafe Carlyle are venerable treasures. So one must forgive signs of age to a point .. but the old girl is showing signs of wear. The hallways on room floors are really falling apart. And there was a smell of raid. And elevators are brutally slow. I hope they make the necessary repairs. But I do love this place. More...

I can't say enough about the wonderful experience I had at Cafe Carlyle on February 21. From the minute I arrived, each and every staff member was extremely helpful and caring...from the moment I pulled into the parking garage, as I waited at the entrance...and the excellent hospitality continued throughout the evening at the bar, during the show and beyond. It only added even more good memories of an evening with the incomparable John Lloyd Young. It was a pleasure - and I look forward to more trips to The Carlyle in the future. More...

A wonderful 3-day stay in a beautiful, elegant, iconic well-run home from home. I too can't praise enough the outstanding Cafe Carlyle. The performance these last two weeks by one of the many stars who have appeared over the years was especially memorable for the pure talent and presence of John Lloyd Young and his band led by the excelkent Tommy Faragher.

Spent a wonderful evening having dinner and enjoying the singing of John Lloyd Young at the Cafe Carlyle. While this experience is not for the budget-minded it fully delivers a first-class food and entertainment extravaganza. The music of Tony Award winner Mr. Young is not to be missed. His amazing voice along with his ingratiating banter with the audience and good humor only adds more to the show. If you want to go back in time to the 1950 supper clubs, the Cafe Carlyle delivers magnificently. More...
