Time Out Says
You’ll arrive to a gorgeous space with exposed filament lighting, cast iron fittings and a central bar.
Only thing is, this isn’t Bar 51. No, this is a stunning, yet seemingly disused, whole other bar that you have to pass through, in order to take another elevator to reach Bar 51. You’re then met with a shiny new bar – this one is Bar 51, this time, but it’s far less characterful. And while the views out from this classy, sophisticated and easy-going bar are impressive, they’re more obstructed, and the experience feels a little disappointing.
Drinks are reasonable, plus head on Wednesday where you’ll be able to make the most of the once-a-week happy hour. There’s also a piano in the corner for a bit of classy ambiance.
After an anti-climatic entrance, it’s an elegant enough bar – though it lacks a bit of character, which is a shame considering what lies two floors beneath.
