With its numbered tables and air of seduction, Bar Pleiades is a cocktail lounge and hotel bar evocative of a discreet rendez-vous—and the newest addition to the Café Boulud family. Named for the beloved French restaurant frequented by Manhattan’s art world elite of the 1970s and 80s, Bar Pleiades combines the respectful, attentive service of a fine hotel bar with the inspired cocktail menu of a gifted mixologist.
Bartender Darryl Chan has earned a reputation for working with seasonal market ingredients and house-brewed accents. While classic in spirit, his signature cocktails take their direction from the renowned Café Boulud just next door. One of his favorite's for you to try at home; the Cranberry Granita Champagne Cocktail.
The hotel bar and cocktail lounge décor – inspired by both fashion icon Coco Chanel and the elegant lines of a 1930s Art Deco bar cart – features black and white lacquer finishes, French doors and quilted walls, inviting seclusion in intimate niches. Tables at Bar Pleiades are numbered to maintain a standard of discreet service and support clandestine encounters. Settle into a banquette and simply relax in one of the best hotel bars in NYC.
