Orient Express Cocktail Bar

Orient Express Opens in the West Village!

The Orient Express may have inspired iconic novels and films like Dracula and From Russia with Love, served as the setting for bravado characters like James Bond, and been featured as the backdrop of Agatha Christie's most famous works, but the famed vintage train continues to ride through modern culture with its latest stop in NYC's West Village, where Turks and Frogs owner Osman Cakir has re-conceptualized its famous voyages into a posh, time-reversing cocktail bar with a flair for the spirits of yesteryear.

Its look reflects the nostalgia of train travel: Amid the sexy amber glow, warm vintage-tinted beech wood panels, faux windows and bronzed luggage racks, the bar—a handcrafted Caesar Stone beauty—is the clear focal point. Above it, the ceiling curves to each side, and behind, bartenders bedecked in old-school vests and neckties shake and pour cocktails designed by Sam Ziar.

"This quaint train-like bar was amazing. The music was great and the drinks were delicious and very time appropriate. We went to celebrate a birthday and the whole time we were sitting there with big grins on our faces because it was a fantastic vibe."
