Gramercy / Union Square, New York –
Located in the swanky Gramercy Park Hotel, Rose Bar is a chic and modern parlor that draws a clientele of artists, trendsetters, and the occasional celebrity.
While no longer an A-list hotspot, the venue (created by Ian Schrager of Studio 54 fame, and designed by Julian Schnabel) still has a discerning door and guests who find themselves lucky enough to make it in are ushered through the adjacent Jade Bar and into a warm and welcoming environment.
Fittingly decked out in velvet drapes and soothing, luxe shades of antique rose and moss green, the refreshingly unpretentious nightspot consists of a spacious, high-ceilinged room featuring a deep mahogany bar, a massive fireplace, and plenty of velvet sofas and chairs where writers, musicians, and scenesters wearing everything from suits to designer t-shirts cozy up for cocktails and conversation.
Patrons into the fine arts will admire the bar’s rotating collection of works by the likes of Warhol and Basquiat, while those looking to relax will appreciate the free use of the pool table in the back.
Laid back and exceedingly cool, Rose Bar is the perfect sanctuary for artsy New Yorkers and celebs in need of a low-key night out.
Diverse group of affluent artists, designers, fashionistas, musicians, and the occasional celebrity, 20s to 30s.
Primarily rock music with some pop. Pool table.
Lunch/dinner menu features New American/Italian fusion cuisine. Late-night menu offers appetizers and snack plates.
Lunch/dinner menu $9–$34, late-night menu $9–$16. Beer $9+, cocktails $19+.
Any style as long as it’s designer.
The bar draws a big crowd all week, especially on Fridays and Saturdays.
The hotel’s rooftop bar offers a cool place to hang out on summer nights.
