The dress code at the King Cole Bar inside The St. Regis New York in Manhattan is business casual. But that doesn’t mean you won’t see people there wearing everything from jeans to black tie. You’ll find old-school elegance and charm at this iconic New York City bar — and you may want to dress accordingly whether you’re simply grabbing a cocktail or a meal. During lunch, men were wearing blazers and button-down shirts, while women wore casual dresses and jeans. If you want to drop in while you’re dressed to the nines after a night at the opera, feel free. No matter what, dress comfortably and plan to stay a while at the King Cole Bar. The bartenders know that part of their job is chatting with guests and they expect you to linger over your cocktail or snack.
