Like Al Capone’s hidden vault, the Campbell Apartment sounds like an urban myth. A grand, art deco-outfitted office hiding behind the walls of Grand Central Station for over 40 years? It’s true. The private offices of John A Campbell, a financial tycoon of the 1920s and member of the board of the New York Central Railroad, were discovered and converted into a luxurious bar in 1999, complete with marble fireplace and massive leaded-glass windows. Drinks are of the early aughts’ style of classical recreation—no esoteric amari and shrubs found here—all the better for imagining you’ve stepped back in time.
