NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: If you want to experience the epitome of an upscale cocktail lounge, New York City's King Cole Bar located inside the St. Regis Hotel in Midtown Manhattan is the place to be. The perfect combination of elegance and intrigue, the King Cole Bar NY is a spot you must visit if you are looking for a sophisticated night out.

Why We Go:

  • The Food and Drink:The bar that saw the invention of the Bloody Mary, the King Cole Bar NY features amazing designer cocktails and food, both made with the highest quality of ingredients.
  • The Ambiance: The  interior of the King Cole St. Regis bar is made up of dark wood and leather chairs, giving the King Cole bar NY a distinctively old-school and masculine feel. You almost get the sense Don Draper is about to walk through the doors of the King Cole bar.
  • Location: With prime location in Midtown Manhattan, the King Cole Bar New York is in walking distance to all of Manhattan's most elegant restaurants and New York City's fantastic landmarks. 

Inside Knowledge: The 'Old King Cole' mural, that the King Cole bar is named after, is over 100 years old.

Do's and Don'ts:  

  • Do Order the Red Snapper: The signature cocktail of the King Cole St. Regis bar is also known as a Bloody Mary. But when the drink was invented at the King Cole bar in 1934, the name Bloody Mary was deemed too graphic and the name of the drink was changed to The Red Snapper. Order this signature drink and be part of cocktail history!
  • Do Talk to the Bartender:The famous 'Old King Cole' mural that the King Cole bar NY is named after has a secret meaning that the bartenders have to be coaxed into explaining. Ask the King Cole bar bartenders about the mural and be part of the mystery.
  • Don't Forget Your Wallet: This posh New York City bar also has posh New York City prices. The cocktails and food at the King Cole bar NY are of an exquisite quality, but that also entails some high prices, with food consistently over $25 and cocktails over $30 on average.
  • Don't Dress Down:  When you go to the King Cole New York, dress to impress, and embrace the signature King Cole St. Regis bar experience. This classy establishment necessitates a classy dress-code.
