King Cole Bar - Legendary Manhattan Dining

The Bloody Mary is the signature cocktail of the St. Regis brand, with each hotel crafting its own local interpretation of the libation. Discover the Red Snapper: this classic cocktail bears the original name and recipe of its creator, Fernand Petiot, at The St. Regis New York.

The Bloody Mary has been a part of St. Regis history since 1934 when a bartender Fernand Petiot introduced the “Red Snapper,” which would later be renamed the Bloody Mary. The famed cocktail was created when Serge Obolensky, a well-known man about town whose penchant for vodka was in keeping with his aristocratic Russian background, asked Petiot to make the vodka cocktail he had in Paris. The formula was spiced up with salt, pepper, lemon and Worcestershire Sauce, but since “Bloody Mary” was deemed too vulgar for the hotel’s elegant King Cole Bar, it was rechristened the “Red Snapper.” While the name may not have caught on, the spicy drink most certainly did, and over the years it has become the signature cocktail of the King Cole Bar.

In October 2014, the beloved libation celebrated its 80th Anniversary in grand style at The St. Regis New York and around the world.

The puckish mural, painted by Maxfield Parrish in 1906, was commissioned by Colonel John Jacob Astor for his 42nd Street hotel, The Knickerbocker. Hesitant to accept the commission, Parrish finally agreed to paint the mural after being offered the “kingly sum” of $5,000 for his work. However, the Knickerbocker was short-lived and not long after the mural was installed at the 42nd Street location, there were plans to turn the hotel into an office building. After leaving the Knickerbocker, the mural made a few stops throughout NYC before arriving at its home in The St. Regis New York in 1932.

Adored by generations of New Yorkers and hotel patrons worldwide, Old King Cole now looks out on visitors with a restored brilliance, casting a watchful eye over many historic Manhattan events, most notably the birth of the Red Snapper in 1934.

Hidden within the painting is a secret known only by those behind the bar.

Nestled in a private corner of the bar beneath the watchful eye of Maxfield Parrish’s Old King Cole Mural, this is the only table with access to an exclusive chef’s custom designed menu and a bespoke wine list from the hotel’s coveted cellar. Expertly curated tableware from Christofle and Bernadaud complete the stylish dining experience.

Table 55 may be reserved on a nightly basis for $2500*. For more information or to make a reservation, please contact our team at 212-350-7155 or email our team.
