King Cole Bar Restaurant Review

: Think of a metropolitan hotel bar and this might be the place you picture. Located in the swanky St. Regis hotel, the King Cole attracts everyone from urbane urbanites to a few tourists in the know who come to gawk at the famous mural of Old King Cole (painted by Maxfield Parrish). With high ceilings and huge glass doors, shiny marble floors and a spiffy bar to boot, this spot is one of the best. First-timers should try a Red Snapper, the spicy sibling to the Bloody Mary.
