UPPER EAST SIDE. This Madison Avenue piano bar, named after an author of children’s literature, attracts a more mature and well-heeled group of clientele than some of the Upper East Side’s other nightspots do. Murals from Ludwig Bemelmans depict scenes from Madeline and a few of his other stories, adding nice contrast to the bar’s “Old New York” atmosphere. Indeed, this place ranks among the city’s classic piano bars joints where you can enjoy a good drink, terrific company, and great music in relative peace.
