World Bar

★★★★☆
Overlooking the United Nations and its beautiful gardens, this upscale bar is the first U.S. project of Brazil�s most celebrated hospitality architect, and features soaring 30-foot ceilings, book-matched oak walls, and a �floating� glass mezzanine. Uniquely elegant, The World Bar also holds private cocktail receptions, dinners and business meetings for up to 150 guests. It also features one of the world's most expensive cocktails, fittingly named the "World Cocktail." At $50+, it's a combination of Remy XO, Pineau des Charentes, Veuve Clicquot, and various other ingredients mixed at your table on a spotless silver tray�and crowned with a slick pool of 23-karat liquid gold.

I was at the Trump World Bar on Feb. 27,2010. I must say that if my friends hadn't already paid to go in, I wouldn't have even gone in because the lady at the front door was extremely rude. I am coming to generate profit for her place and she is in no way whatsoever unprofessional.
The place is extremley small and no ambient whatsoever yet they still charge $20 admission. The staff is extremley rude and almost all the people that frequent look as if they could be sex offenders. You can visit any nightclub, be it Pacha, Webster Hall, Studio 34 where the place is at least 10 times larger, the drinks are 3 times cheaper and the ambient is incomparable yet the admission is still $20.
I got 2 bottles, Absolute Vodka, at $380 each. My friend was outside and wanted to go meet him with his girlfriend, I told the lady not to charge him and just put his admission on the tab, she said to me "go inside or I swear I will kick you out". Wait a minute, Im spending a total of 800 dollars that night at your venue and this is how you treat your customers?
Please please please do not go here if you want to actually have a good night and not regret going out.

Yes, yes, of course had to have the World Cocktail after seeing it on "Three Sheets" and it was fun. Nice professional staff, lovely furnishings, a decent shrimp cocktail and some liquid gold made for a very pleasant Friday evening stop.

I have to contradict some of the things that I have heard about the World Bar located in the UN. We have visited the World bar and were terribly disappointed in the service and the attitude of most people there. I would not go back. Never mind the prices.

When first invited out with friends to the World Bar, I have to admit that I was not necessarily looking forward to the evening. I was expecting ridiculously overpriced drinks in a stuffy pretentious place. Needless to say I was very pleasantly surprised to finding myself having one of my most enjoyable evenings out in a while (and one of the best Manhattan's too!). The staff is unbelievably accomdating even though our party was nearly 3 times the size of our reservation. The drinks were superb and the big screen to watch The Apprentice made it all the more fabulous. I will definitely be returning!

I made a trip over tothe World Tower to view a friend's apartment and decided to have a drink before returning home. Bret - is an exceptional bartender. Great drinks - excellent conversation in a stark and clean environment. The bar was not heavily populated - and that is exactly why I will return (and bring a room full of friends). I can't remember the last time I enjoyed myself so much in a Manhattan bar - having an educated and pleasant exchange with equally enjoyable people. This is a bar for "grown ups" - no "20 somethings" screaming over terrible music and spilling drinks / falling down all over the place.

The bar is perfect for private parties and conversations. Highly recommend for before / after dinner drinks with family, friends, colleagues and associates.

World cocktail - It was interesting as the bartender explained what was in it and he would make it right in front of you. They open a bottle of champagne for this which suprised me and the edible gold was a nice touch. Still kind of expensive for 50 dollars though.

The semi-private upstairs loft is very cool and the ambience - sweet! Wonderful upscale crowd lends itself to having a terrific time. It's a hip place - we had a blast!

Pros: roomy, seating, vibe

Beautiful, grown-up lounge. Elegant, sophisticated and expensive. A nice place to go and relax. Attractive, upscale crowd. Not hideously expensive if you don't order "The World's Most Expensive Cocktail."
