Worst place to go out. 2/28/2010

I was at the Trump World Bar on Feb. 27,2010. I must say that if my friends hadn't already paid to go in, I wouldn't have even gone in because the lady at the front door was extremely rude. I am coming to generate profit for her place and she is in no way whatsoever unprofessional. The place is extremley small and no ambient whatsoever yet they still charge $20 admission. The staff is extremley rude and almost all the people that frequent look as if they could be sex offenders. You can visit any nightclub, be it Pacha, Webster Hall, Studio 34 where the place is at least 10 times larger, the drinks are 3 times cheaper and the ambient is incomparable yet the admission is still $20. I got 2 bottles, Absolute Vodka, at $380 each. My friend was outside and wanted to go meet him with his girlfriend, I told the lady not to charge him and just put his admission on the tab, she said to me "go inside or I swear I will kick you out". Wait a minute, Im spending a total of 800 dollars that night at your venue and this is how you treat your customers? Please please please do not go here if you want to actually have a good night and not regret going out. Pros: Nothing Cons: Everything more

Sad. 9/26/2009

What a joke. This bar signature drink is The World Cocktail which is made with, in part, Remy Martin XO cognac and 24 karat gold. We went there around 9 p.m. and the place was empty. I ordered the World Cocktail and the waiter said ok and left for several minutes, only to come back and inform me that they were out of some of the ingredients. Well I had to question what he was out of since this is the signature drink, and he informed me that they were out of gold and also out of Hennessey which is odd because the drink is advertised as being made with Remy. I ordered something else and it was ok, and the atmosphere was ok, but come on here...did they fall for one of the We Pay Cash For Your Gold ads that are popping up everywhere???? more

World BORE 2/14/2009

I Recently visited this place, i must say it SUCKED, it was filled with Ugly Snobby Rich People, with a combination of Trashy people trying to get with the Snobs.. the place was TINY, overpriced, and PACKED Def not going to this place again, Maybe if i wanted to stick up a trust fund baby then i'll consider going back Pros: the signature drink Cons: Everything more

Fun, elegant and polished staff make it a must-return 10/24/2008

Yes, yes, of course had to have the World Cocktail after seeing it on "Three Sheets" and it was fun. Nice professional staff, lovely furnishings, a decent shrimp cocktail and some liquid gold made for a very pleasant Friday evening stop. more

It was very classy place... 5/4/2008

It was for my boyfriends birthday, he had no clue where we were going, and he and I are not fans of crowds and loud music. This place was perfect!! It was classy and the atmosphere was ideal. The drinks were tasty and my boyfriend especially enjoyed The Worlds expensive drink. The bartender was great; I do not have a single complaint. It was a wonderful evening and I would defiantly go back. more

A Pleasant Surprise 10/21/2004

When first invited out with friends to the World Bar, I have to admit that I was not necessarily looking forward to the evening. I was expecting ridiculously overpriced drinks in a stuffy pretentious place. Needless to say I was very pleasantly surprised to finding myself having one of my most enjoyable evenings out in a while (and one of the best Manhattan's too!). The staff is unbelievably accomdating even though our party was nearly 3 times the size of our reservation. The drinks were superb and the big screen to watch The Apprentice made it all the more fabulous. I will definitely be returning! more

Great evening 8/24/2004

I made a trip over tothe World Tower to view a friend's apartment and decided to have a drink before returning home. Bret - is an exceptional bartender. Great drinks - excellent conversation in a stark and clean environment. The bar was not heavily populated - and that is exactly why I will return (and bring a room full of friends). I can't remember the last time I enjoyed myself so much in a Manhattan bar - having an educated and pleasant exchange with equally enjoyable people. This is a bar for "grown ups" - no "20 somethings" screaming over terrible music and spilling drinks / falling down all over the place. The bar is perfect for private parties and conversations. Highly recommend for before / after dinner drinks with family, friends, colleagues and associates. Pros: atmosphere, staff, quality crowd Cons: , off the beaten path more

expensive cocktail 3/13/2004

World cocktail - It was interesting as the bartender explained what was in it and he would make it right in front of you. They open a bottle of champagne for this which suprised me and the edible gold was a nice touch. Still kind of expensive for 50 dollars though. Pros: nice layout of bar, interesting drinks Cons: , empty bar more

Classy and Hip 5/28/2003

The semi-private upstairs loft is very cool and the ambience - sweet! Wonderful upscale crowd lends itself to having a terrific time. It's a hip place - we had a blast! Pros: roomy, seating, vibe more

Hip, Modern and Classy 5/28/2003

It is a destination spot, meaning you wouldn't necessarily happen to walk by it, but this bar is excellent! There's a very cool upstairs semi-private loft and the service is great. You get what you pay for and although the drinks are a little more than moderately priced, it is well worth it!! more

World's Most Expensive Cocktail 12/23/2002

Beautiful, grown-up lounge. Elegant, sophisticated and expensive. A nice place to go and relax. Attractive, upscale crowd. Not hideously expensive if you don't order "The World's Most Expensive Cocktail." more

Owner Message

  • Recently opened and already one of New York City's premiere nightlife destinations, The World Bar is on the ground floor of the exclusive Trump World Tower condominium and overlooks the United Nations and its beautiful gardens.

    The classically contemporary space which is the first U.S. project of Brazil's most celebrated hospitality architect features soaring 30-foot ceilings, book-matched oak walls, and a "floating" glass mezzanine.

    Uniquely elegant and very conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan, The World Bar is ideal for cocktail receptions, dinners and business meetings for up to 150 guests.


  • The Scene
    Be warned: Donald Trump's bar near the United Nations doesn't soar above the city or ooze with international intrigue. The beige, sparsely populated room holds square lobby chairs and a central round, outward-facing banquette with wannabe-funky, stalagmite-like tables. Downbeat house music and a TV screen broadcasting the night's game fill in the mismatched picture, while a gracious staff waits on suited and casually dressed guests.

    The Draw
    What the bar lacks in ambience, it makes up for with a knockout drink list. Most remarkable is the $50 World Cocktail--topped with liquified gold. The bartender personally comes out to mix the delicate, port-scented blend of Remy XO, white grape and lemon juice, Pineau des Charentes fortified grape juice, Veuve Clicquot and a 23-carat floater, which leaves your lips sparkling. If that's too rich, pick a drink from the $12 menu of standards and house inventions; the mai tai tastes superbly fresh.
