The iconic New York City department store, Bergdorf Goodman, doesn’t need more help in luring visitors into its well-heeled Fifth Avenue home, but that didn’t stop the fashion institution from unveiling a new restaurant and bar nestled inside its men’s store this month.

Christened Goodman’s Bar, the moody eatery conjures up memories of fine European cafes and bars with its juxtaposition of Art Deco details and natural greenery – both nods to the building’s exterior façade and its Central Park location.

Designed by the store’s in-house design team, Goodman’s Bar alluring atmosphere is further enhanced by an eclectic mix of elements, which includes a bespoke, hand-painted mural designed in collaboration with de Gournay, and elegant contemporary lighting from Apparatus Studio. Vintage Franz Schuster chairs in the main dining room are complemented by custom backgammon tables and wingback chairs by Tom Dixon.

In such environs, visitors can expect to enjoy a highly curated selection of small production wines and modern riffs on classic cocktails, such as its signature Goodman’s Manhattan and the Oxacan Mary – a Bloody Mary featuring Yola Mezcal. The beverage offering is equally matched by the restaurant’s modern classic fare, which ranges from an elevated breakfast sandwich to housemade tagliatelle with white truffle. Cosy and discreet, yet also putting its most exquisite foot forward, Goodman’s Bar is set to be that timeless, well-kept secret, which will be cherished by both visitors and locals alike.
