    Nice little exclusive speakeasy style bar in the theatre district on restaurant row. We were told this place can be a struggle to get into at times as they do like to uphold a certain type of clientele, especially as it's known to be a spot where celebs visit when on Broadway or Times Square. We were dressed smart and as we walked in we were greeted and were able to check our jackets. We sat at the bar (rather than a table) as we were only going in for a drink, however they do serve food. They have a very 1920's prohibition feel in the bar with old pictures of New York and an old fashioned cash register behind the bar. Even the guy who was serving us had 1920's attire and even his moustache and goatee beard was very classic. The cocktail menu is basic, again only concentrating on the classics to mimic the prohibition era. I tried an aviation but it was far too sour for my taste. If you want to go somewhere exclusive feeling which isn't crowded and away from the tourist type bars, this is the place to go. However your drink prices will reflect this.

    My sister and I headed here because we were told it was a speakeasy which I'm sure it technically is. We were picturing something slightly More enigmatic or a touch scandalous considering that the concept was based on hidden bars during the prohibition. The only reference was a velvet drape you need to walk through to get to the hostess. That being said we were happy to sit with very well dressed New York yrs and drink a very well poured glass of fine pinot

    No sign out front, looks like a speak easy as you climb the stairs. Great place for drinks and small plates. Very intimate and fun.

    Bar Centrale is just awesome. The service is great and the atmosphere is quintessential old New York but go for the food. The small plates are just fantastic. The guacamole is better than what you find in most Mexican restaurants, the shrimp and Chinese mushroom dumplings have a delicate wrapper, are plump and delicious, and the charred skirt steak has a perfect crust and is tender and juicy. The drinks also deserve high marks! Although a pre/post theater favorite, make it a point to go when you are not going to the theater and enjoy the experience.

    High marks for the exclusivity factor coupled with fantastic classic cocktails. The food wasn't impressive, but the vibe was chill and I'd go back for a drink if I was in Midtown or had an out of town guest. Reservations are a must, they take them one week out, or you can grab a spot at the bar (no standing!)
