An elegant addition to restaurateur Daniel Boulud’s impressive New York credits, Bar Pleiades and its luxurious Chanel-inspired design attracts an affluent but casual local clientele looking for great conversation and exquisite cocktails.

Situated in the lobby of the swanky Surrey Hotel, the bar boasts a striking black-and-white art deco décor with plenty of comfy upholstered chairs and leather banquettes to accommodate the upscale local business people and posh hotel guests stopping in for early evening drinks.

A couple of cozy semi-enclosed rooms with tufted walls, club chairs, and plush banquettes offer a more intimate space for groups, while those dropping by for a quick drink before heading home can hang out at the sleek bar to watch the mixologists whip up selections from the rotating menu of seasonal cocktails.

A low but constant buzz of conversation mixes with the ambient music to create a warm and laid-back atmosphere conducive to romantic dates or just a mellow night with friends over some delectable plates of charcuterie and croquettes from Café Boulud.

Surprisingly inviting and unpretentious, Bar Pleiades has become a popular destination for stylish but dressed-down Upper East Siders who appreciate the venue’s 30s-style elegance and soothing vibe.

Tip from Adriana:

After enjoying a Wonky Moskin – that’s gin, lemon juice, and maraschino cherries – see if you can sneak up to the rooftop deck, which is for hotel guests only. If you manage to get up there, look at the stars – Pleiades is named after one of the prettiest constellations in the sky.

Tres Chic!

If you happen to the in the Upper East side and want to catch a fancy drink in an elegant bar - this is most definitely your place. The space is moderately sized but feels like an intimate meeting space with their lush furniture and upscale clientele. The food menu for the bar and lounge is limited, but what is offered is quite delicious as the space is catered by michelin chef Daniel Boulud's restaurant which is located just across the entrance. The cocktails are not only delicious but visually impressive as the last time I went my friends drink came in a full coconut, and my other friend's drink came garnished with a full sprig of herbs. As for my drink, it was garnished with chorizo - ultimate win in my book.
