The Campbell – located in Grand Central Terminal at 15 Vanderbilt Avenue, just off 43rd Street - is an iconic New York institution, thoughtfully restored to its original grandeur by Gerber Group. The restoration, directed by internationally renowned design firm Ingrao Inc., maintains the integrity of the property’s historic architecture while introducing contemporary design elements, which together create a refined yet approachable atmosphere.
Paying homage to the legacy of John W. Campbell, a Jazz Age financier who converted the space to his private office and reception hall in 1923, The Campbell showcases many of the thirteenth century Florentine-inspired design intricacies that upheld its legendary allure, including soaring, 25-foot hand painted ceilings, a grand stone fireplace, Campbell’s personal steel safe, a century-old leaded glass window and original millwork.
The Campbell provides three unique experiences: The Campbell Bar, the timeless office thoughtfully curated with updated quartzite accents, bold brass finishes and custom wood, mohair and leather furnishings in rich hunter green, midnight blue and red tones; The Campbell Palm Court, an indoor oasis and lounge surrounded by towering palm trees with a view into the main terminal; and The Campbell Terrace, a sweeping outdoor covered veranda complete with a full bar.
Gerber Group’s selection of classic and modern cocktails, that highlight fresh ingredients, wines and locally brewed craft beers, are complemented by a menu of elevated bar fare and lunch specialties, including small plates, soups, salads and sandwiches.
