Every night at DANIEL, guests are invited to stop in for a cocktail at our bar, where they can also enjoy dishes à la carte.
While many diners visit DANIEL to celebrate special occasions, few may realize that they can also join us six nights a week for a cocktail, dessert or dishes à la carte. With its warm, intimate and romantically lit atmosphere, the Bar at DANIEL makes for an out-of-the-ordinary afterwork drink or a nightcap.
The cocktail menu is overseen by Head Bartender Marcie Andersen, drawing inspiration from such diverse influences as rare artisanal liquors, seasonal French traditions and even the diverse musical tastes of the DANIEL team. Don’t miss the rotating tableside cocktail, which promises a multi-sensory, theatrical and memorable drinking experience.
Located just beyond DANIEL’s iconic revolving brass door, The Bar & Lounge is a perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink, cheese course, dessert, night cap, or full dining experience. The Upper Lounge is an intimate, wood-paneled space with comfortable sofas, low-slung chairs, soft lighting and a relaxed, elegant ambiance; à la carte and tasting menus are served in the Upper Lounge. Down just a few steps find the Bar & Lower Lounge, where the action happens, alongside the sounds of smooth jazz and a subtle sizzle. Join the ranks of neighborhood Upper East Siders in-the-know who have made the Bar & Lounge at DANIEL their local spot to rendez-vous.
A list of 10 original cocktails, each featuring its own spirit, utilize a diversity of produce and rare ingredients from around the world, appealing to international tastes of DANIEL’s clientele. The Mi Figue Mi Bourbon combines fig infused Elijah Craig Bourbon with Melilot and the sweetness of honey water, finished with flavors of chestnut. The indulgent Momentum is a marriage of Louis Royer Cognac, Varnelli Café Mocha Chili and Cinnamon Infused Rittenhouse Rye beneath a layer of Frangelico foam. The famous White Cosmo is a sultry and modern twist on the classic Cosmopolitan, with a fragrant splash of St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur and white cranberry juice, poured over an orchid suspended within a sphere of ice. The skilled bar team is equally adept in creating cocktails à la minute, suited to each guest’s individual tastes; or speaking to the long list of spirits and wines by the glass.
