The Campbell used to be called The Campbell Apartment, but now it’s under new management, and it’s slightly more casual. There’s a new little outdoor area, and there’s no longer a dress code, although drinks are still pretty pricey. If you’re looking for a really nice old-school place to grab a drink in Midtown, however, it’s worth it. The ceilings are high, there are nice leather chairs and a non-functional fireplace, and we especially like the seats on the balcony overlooking the bar. Just know that this place is semi-hidden in Grand Central, and, on weeknights, it will probably be packed with commuters.
