Enjoy a refresher at the Society's historic bar, located in the third floor Hall of Fame Dining Room. Named one of NYC's "hidden gems", the bar features an intiminate setting surrounded by masterful illustrations from the past and present. A menu of specialty cocktails, wine and beer is available. And every Tuesday night visitors are welcome to enjoy live entertainment.
Originally built in 1951, the bar was housed in what is now our fourth floor Library. Closed to the public, the lounge area was only open to members and was a place for illustrators and art directors to discuss business. In the 1960s the bar was relocated to the third floor and welcomed all visitors to the Society, a tradition that continues today. In 1939, Norman Rockwell gifted the Society with his painting "The Dover Coach", a large-scale oil painting featuring Christmas travelers created for The Saturday Evening Post, and this famous painting now lives permanetly above the bar.
The Society's Bar is open to the public. Members receive a 10% discount on their final bill.
