At the Pierre Hotel, Summer Drinks at the Two E Bar
Summer is here and it’s a great time to indulge in the beauty of Central Park or just window shop in the dream stores down Fifth Avenue. There’s also a delightful place, a hidden gem, to sit down and rest your tired feet, chat with friends and grab a drink. The place is the Two E Bar and lounge at The Pierre, a Taj Hotel. Few people know of this intimate spot in the city where you can enjoy cocktails away from the madding crowd. Now every Tuesday you get to hear live Jazz and drink cocktails inspired by the hit TV series Mad Men.
