Bemelmans Bar

The Carlyle, 353 E. 76th St.
Manhattan, NY 10021
Upper East Side


Few bars combine wit, glamour and coziness as masterfully as Bemelmans does. The whimsical Central Park murals—painted by the bar namesake and creator of the beloved character Madeline—give the sophisticated art deco interior a storybook gloss. Bar fare includes refined treats like North Atlantic oysters and assorted house-made pâté. And after a few of Bemelmans' famous cocktails (the Gin-Gin Mule, with gin, ginger beer, muddled mint and fresh lime juice, and the Old Cuban are worth a try), look over the murals thoroughly to find all of Bemelmans' visual witticisms you missed the first time.
