Chef Daniel Boulud has named his chic Upper East Side bar for the beloved French restaurant frequented by Manhattan’s art world elite of the 1970s and 80s. Bar Pleiades, designed by Lauren Rottet, is located within the Surrey Hotel and adjacent to Café Boulud. It combines the elegantly attentive service of a fine hotel bar with the distinctive cocktail menu of talented mixology. The cocktails are ever-changing, seasonally-inspired and deliciously sinful, while the menu of bar-friendly faire is prepared by the same care in the Café Boulud kitchen.
For the 40 seat bar’s décor the design drew inspiration from both fashion icon Coco Chanel and the elegant lines of a 1930’s Art Deco bar cart. L-shaped banquette invite seclusion in intimate spaces.
