Ralph Lauren will open his first The Polo Bar in New York in January 2015 next door to the new Polo Ralph Lauren flagship store at Fifth Avenue and East 55th Street. The Polo Bar New York which will be Ralph Lauren’s third restaurant, joining RL Restaurant, which opened in 1999 in Chicago, and Ralph’s, which opened in 2010 in Paris is inspired by classic New York establishments and Ralph Lauren’s love of gathering around the table with family and friends, The Polo Bar offers a casual yet refined setting for food and drink in the heart of New York.
Guests of the Polo Bar will enter the bar, where a selection of cocktails and light fare such as garlic potato chips and a daily assortment of oysters can be enjoyed at the brass-topped bar or a cosy back nook warmed by a fireplace. An elegant wooden staircase leads guests downstairs into the main dining room, where aged leather banquettes create intimate dining alcoves, and deep hunter green walls are adorned with carefully curated paintings and photographs. Double doors with port windows open into a special private room that provides an intimate dining experience for up to 14.
“I’m drawn to the kind of food that people truly enjoy—vibrant food that people want toreturn to time and again”. Ralph Lauren
