Star Lounge is The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park’s dimly lit nook for drinking and socializing. Located on the ground level, the wood-paneled Star Lounge is next to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s Auden Bistro, which opened in 2012. Behind the wood-paneled counter you’ll find legendary bartender Norman Bukofzer, who according to hotel lore can recall your drink order an astounding decade later. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel bar’s signature cocktails include the Shining Star — a refreshing mix of chilled Ketel One Citron, Cointreau, fresh lime and cranberry juice — and the Central Park Side Car — Camut Calvados, sweet and sour, and Grand Marnier.
You'll also find Norman Bukofzer's creations at Auden Bar, which adjoins Auden Bistro and serves an extensive list of local beers and spirits.
