This place just cracks me up! At first glance, it is so chi-chi wannabe a scene but give it a chance, I actually have fun there. The waitresses are a bit over the top, they prance around in teeny little black dresses and thigh high boots - its so cliche you have to laugh. But they are actually pretty nice and service is quite good. The drinks are way over-priced and nothing spectacular but the appetizers are very good (and also over-priced). I think what makes it all worthwhile is the space is wonderful and there are enough people there so that it always feels like its happening. Yet if you are there with your group, you can enjoy each other's company without it being too loud or feeling crowded in by all the other people there - not that many places in the city where you can do that.

Very poor service, for such a HIGH PRICE martini. Went there Saturday night 07-09-05, for a friends birthday, had what seemed to be a watered down Wet Pear Martini. It was wet. Paid for the very bad drink, and the group of 10, went around the corner to the Mandarin's Mo Bar. Had a great time, better drinks, and great service. As a New Yorker, I would tell all to think about Stone Rose, then go to the Mardain's Mo Bar. You won't be sorry.

Part of the Whiskey empire, the Stone Rose stands out from the rest because of both the size of the room and the view of Central Park and Columbus Circle. Time will tell if this will just be a tourist bar or will develop its own character and clientele.

Catering to the leisure class,the Stone Rose is one of the premier bars the city has to offer. With its decor and amazing views of Central Park, one can feel relaxed and truly at ease. The only drawback is the dreadful food slection, not to mention the food itself. Otherwise top of the line bar. However, it is wise to keep track of your tab because it can quickly turn into a several hundred dollar affair.

Great view of central park day or night. Very posh great crowd. Beware of wines by the glass they are not whats listed. a glass of phelps chardonnay($22)was clearly not when served. i questioned the waitress and she insisted it was. she brought over a bottle of phelps table white. huge quality price difference.other than that well worth the trip. strictly a drinking spot the food is limited.

Absolutely beautiful spot, but expect to pay beautiful spot prices. Great drink menu, with a few new and innovative drinks. Prices range $12 to $18 per drink, but between the attmosphere and the drink, I would say it is worth it......for a round or two. Anymore, make sure you can claim it on an expense account.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
