About Two E Bar and Lounge
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.

Two E Bar and Lounge Ratings and Reviews
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.
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...
I took my kids with another family with two kids, so 4 kids in total. I thought it may be challenging but the staff was so welcoming, kids enjoyed the food so much, and the overall service was just excellent. Food was great too. I'd recommend to anyway who wants to have a very nice experience in ny.
Had afternoon tea; sandwiches not particularly tasty, the bread was dry; tiny portions of cream and jam; pastries not particularly tasty either. Panettone scones were slightly oily. I was in a party of 5 squished around a too-small table and too-small banquette. There was hardly room for the teacups and plates around the 3-tier stands. I did not feel it was value for money compared to other hotel teas I’ve had or compared to what afternoon tea was like at the Pierre years ago.
I have been to the Pierre many times but never for. Tea, it was very nice except an hour in there was a school having tea with Santa, it was extremely loud and very hectic and at that point was actually annoyed tea should be quiet and relaxing, the school should have had a private room for this or when I made the reservation they should have mentioned this to me very disappointed! Also the waiter was not attentive after he brought us the tea never once came back and asked if we needed anything
Not the best in the end. Made a reservation for high tea while recently in NYC with friends. Had hoped for a little more imagination, but seemed standard on both atmosphere and food. Service was also slow and not very personalized. A lot of options for afternoon tea in NYC during the holidays - not so sure I would pick this one again.
Fabulous tea service before our evening at the ballet. The tea was delightful and the food was perfect. Great girls date and a fun experience. Would highly recommend, if only just once for the experience. I gave a lower rating for value because it is quite pricey but we were happy to pay for the experience.
