About Empire Room:

From the same man behind tony after-work destination Campbell Apartment comes the Empire Room, a swanky new bar and lounge in the Empire State Building. Although anyone who waits in line for hours to make it up all 102 floors probably deserves a drink, the Empire Room will actually be on the ground floor but it’s huge, clocking in at 3,500 square feet. In a past life the space was home to a post office, but as the Empire Room it’s been given a $500 million makeover and outfitted with an Art Deco-themed interior that “harken[s] back to the golden age of the 1920s and 30s,” according to owner Mark Grossich. Their diverse (and somewhat pricey!) cocktail menu includes interesting mixes. Soak up the fancy booze with some truffled popcorn, miniature Wellingtons or rib-eye sliders.
