About Bemelmans Bar:
A favorite neighborhood bar of Upper East Siders and visitors alike, Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle is a special hideaway where artist and author Ludwig Bemelmans’ whimsical drawings come to life. Best remembered for his beloved Madeline series of classic children’s books, Bemelmans was commissioned in 1947 to paint the large-scale murals to depict all four seasons in famed Central Park. Restored in 2002 by designer Thierry Despont, the bar maintains its Art Deco legacy with chocolate-brown leather banquettes, nickel-trimmed black glass tabletops, a dramatic black granite bar and a 24-karat gold leaf-covered ceiling. Featuring the only surviving Bemelmans’ commissioned art open to the public, the bar combines wit and coziness in unique New York style. Open all year with live music every evening, Bemelmans is open from Monday to Thursday from 12 :00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., Friday and Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. and Sunday from noon to 12:30 a.m. Named in honor of the legendary artist, Bemelmans is a classic New York watering hole that has drawn socialites, politicians, movie stars and moguls for more than seven decades.
