Originally the Gentlemen’s Library when The Pierre opened in 1930, Two E Bar & Lounge has become one of the hotel's most beloved venues. A Neo-Classical lounge, it is designed to reflect a chic Upper East Side residence. Two E's coveted traditional Afternoon Tea menu--recently rated the best in New York City by Town & Country magazine-- is created by a full in-house pastry team. The lounge's new Tiffin & Tea service offers a modern take on a classic Indian and British tradition. At night, Two E transforms into a stylish bar that serves up handcrafted cocktails complemented by small plates. Two E offers exciting entertainment, from live jazz on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings to a monthly cabaret series, Broadway At The Pierre, featuring talent from the best of musical theater.

Had a groupon for Afternoon Tea here and LOVED IT! The food was fabulous - from the salmon and cucumber sandwiches to the macaroons! Tea was tasty as well :)

We went during restaurant week before a show. The food and service were excellent and the wait staff were attentive to ensure that we finished in plenty of time to get to a 7 pm show. Highly recommend. Very convenient for pre-theater dining’

Afternoon tea at the Two E Bar & Lounge is highly recommended! I had an amazing time, the staff was very attentive and all of the food was delicious. I will definitely be returning for afternoon tea again!

**Bonus: This did not apply to me but I thought it was great that they offer this: if you give the staff a 24 hour notice, they can customize a vegan menu as well.

The ambience and service was impeccable. The Afternoon Tea was plentiful. There are only two things I would do differently: I would offer more savory and less sweet. We didn't touch anything on the bottom platter but craved more of the delicious curry chicken tartlets. The scones were perfect. The second is not to prepare each platter ahead of time. You can taste the refrigeration in the bread. It gave it a stale texture and a not so fresh taste. All in all, for the experience, I would do it again.

Was given a terrible table next to waiters’s station even though many other tables were available.

I sent my wife, mother and 2 daughters (mid 20's) to the Two E Bar for a Royal Afternoon Tea.
They started at the Downton Abby Exhibit after a 1 .5 hour train/cab ride south to arrive in the city. Just to mention this was a well planned event and not a " is it open ...lets try here"
They have enjoyed High Tea at many area hotels and were excited to finally try the Pierre . They started at the bar with a bottle of champagne and a Cosmo or 2 ($120.00 with tip) then moved into a first seating for tea at 2pm. ( no real crowd). They told me the service was absent. After the tray of tiered tea accoutrements was delivered with the included glass of champagne the waiter was gone....
My daughter had to stand and leave her seat to try and get a glass of water for the table. Royal Tea for 4 $320.00.without tip. My wife left a disappointed $50 tip for the meal.
Sorry to be so Gauche by adding the costs of the meals and drinks but when you spend $500 for tea and cookies and a cocktail in NYC you should also enjoy the experience of paying the bill. Its fun to splurge and with High Tea the opulence is half of the fun.
I have enjoyed a $3 meal as well as a $2,000 meal but the true enjoyment is in the pleasure of knowing the time and money were both well spent. The Pierre is an iconic treasure of NYC and certainly should be given a chance to serve the reader of this review. They just won't be serving my family High Tea again any time soon. But unlike an Elephant I don't have a great memory...

My daughter and I went for an afternoon tea. It was a great service and food. We loved every minute of it. The sandwiches and scones were Devine. I only wish they had a few more suggestions on tea and food pairings.

Its lovely that Two E Bar and Lounge change their menu of savories and sweets.
The blended teas were delicious. A wonderful place to talk with friends & family.

Pros- Beautiful place. Amazing staff. Great popcorn/ snacks.

Cons- Drinks we average however the impeccable service made up for it imo. I had the kettle one cosmo and a glass of rose champagne.

Tips- Make sure to visit the rotunda before leaving!!
