The Campbell (formerly The Campbell Apartment) is a bar and cocktail lounge in Grand Central Terminal in New York City. The space was once the office of American financier John W. Campbell, a member of the New York Central Railroad's board of directors. Later used for office space, as a studio by CBS and as a jail by Metro-North Railroad, the space was restored to its original opulence following renovations totaling nearly $2 million in 1999 and 2007. Temporarily closed in 2016 after a change in management, the bar was reopened in 2017.Plan my trip to New York City with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Great drinks & amazing atmosphere. Make sure to attend in casual but classy attire. It would be hard to overdress . . . No shorts, flip flop or hats. This place has history & elegance. The drinks are priced accordingly and the overall experience is worth it.
It's definitely a nice bar with vibe that makes you feel like you turned back time a little bit. Also, the fact that it's in Grand Central Station area is not only convenient for those who want to grab a drink before taking off, but it adds a bit more character from my point of view. Bartenders were also very attentive and knew how to treat the customer well. The fact that they called me by my first name added a nice touch. I'd come back again.
