Eat and drink

We know many of you choose to stay in a hotel in Manhattan to experience fine dining at its best. Among all the hotels in NYC, Hotel Elysée boasts one of the most world renowned restaurants, the Monkey Bar, which has been featured on 'Sex in the City" as well as "Man Men". The Monkey Bar became known as “the place to go” especially for those who enjoyed off-color jokes and double-entendre songs spun by such performers as Johnny Payne and Mel Martin. Starting out as just another dimly lit hotel piano bar with mirrored paneling, patrons started to mimic one another (“monkey see, monkey do”). The tiny room was formally named The Monkey Bar in the early 1950’s when the mirrors came down and were replaced by wrap-around hand-painted murals of monkeys by caricaturist Charlie Wala. The old murals depicted monkeys with decidedly human features performing stunts such as elephant riding, monkeys crouching under a Christmas tree, monkeys mixing up banana daiquiris for tough looking monkey-like customers, etc. In successive years, other artists have added to the tableau, keeping the Monkey Bar New York as polished as it always was in days gone by. Guests of the Hotel Elysée in New York are welcome to enjoy many of Monkey Bar's signature selections which are available on the Hotel's in-room dining menu. Monkey Bar is open for lunch Monday - Friday 12pm - 3pm and for dinner 5:30pm - 12am. The Bar at Monkey Bar is open Monday - Friday 12pm - 12am. Saturday's the restaurant and bar are open from 5:30pm - 11pm.
