Bull & Bear Bar
In the late 1800s, The Waldorf Astoria Bar was a favorite gathering spot for Manhattan’s financial elite (who drank alongside colorful characters like Diamond Jim Brady, Buffalo Bill Cody and Bat Masterson). In honor of its Wall Street clientele, the hotel placed two iconic symbols behind the bar: magnificent bronze statues of a bull and a bear.
When The Waldorf Astoria moved from its original location where the Empire State building now stands to its current location on Park Avenue in 1931, those statues became fixtures in the new Men’s Club bar – and inspired its eventual name change to Bull & Bear.Book a Table
Bull & Bear Steakhouse
Bull & Bear Prime Steakhouse opened in 1960. Steps from many Fortune 500 companies and just blocks from Grand Central Station, the restaurant is a convenient venue for a New York City escape, and the legendary mahogany bar has been cited as one of the world’s three greatest by The New York Times.
Redesigned in 2000 to enhance its level of comfort without sacrificing its clubby old-school ambience, Bull & Bear now boasts the finest Italian fabrics and leathers, sporting an air of casual sophistication that will appeal to regular patrons and newcomers alike.
