Video of the Moment

In 1967, Dean Martin's Variety show was in its second season, when he was joined on stage by the comedy team of Allen & Rossi doing their classic routine Hunting/Let's Face the Music & Dance. Marty Allen & Steve Rossi had become to the 1960's what Martin & Lewis had been for the 1950's ... a classic comedy duo. At 94, legendary comedian Marty Allen is still performing, but now his partner is his wife, singer Karon Kate Blackwell. In this show, "An Intimate Evening with Marty Allen," they are touted as the new George Burns and Gracie Allen (google them). Two shows Tuesday, October 18 at 7pm & Thursday, October 20 at 7pm at Metropolitan Room.

Billy Stritch & Jim Caruso take up residency at Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle Sept 25, Oct 2, 9 & 16, Nov 20 & 27, Dec 4 & 18.

Named in honor of Ludwig Bemelmans, the creator of the classic Madeline children’s books, Bemelmans Bar is a timeless location that continues to attract socialites, politicians, movie stars and moguls with its extensive drink menu and nightly live entertainment.

The bar maintains its Art Deco legacy with chocolate-brown leather banquettes, nickel-trimmed black glass tabletops, a dramatic black granite bar and a 24-karat gold leaf-covered ceiling. Guests are charmed by its distinct New York style and the large-scale murals in the hotel bar, the only surviving Bemelmans' commission open to the public.

History of Bemelmans Bar

The Carlyle is an integral part of New York history. As the city’s premier luxury residential hotel, it was a famous gathering place for socialites, world leaders and celebrities when Ludwig Bemelmans began to create his masterpiece murals at the hotel bar. Bemelmans was a successful artist for The New Yorker, Vogue and Town and Country and had achieved enormous success with the Madeline children’s books series. Using his distinct style of art, he transformed the bar with whimsical scenes of Central Park that included picnicking rabbits and ice skating elephants. Rather than be paid for his art, Bemelmans exchanged his work for a year and a half of accommodations at The Carlyle for himself and his family.
