Discover the new frontier of New York’s cocktail scene while surrounding yourself with the city’s alluring history at Trouble’s Trust. Named after ‘Trouble,’ the spoiled Maltese dog upon which notorious hotelier Leona Helmsley bestowed a fortune of $12 million, the bar carries on the legacy of the pampered pooch and her affluent owner.
The swanky aura and refined drink menu at the new bar at The New York Palace fits the legacy of its namesake to a T. The space is luxurious, with a sleek grey bar, subtle and seductive lighting, rich flooring and comfortable seating.
Cocktails run the table from sweet to savory, with several common threads – complex flavor profiles, carefully selected ingredients, and only the finest spirits. From the suitably named-and-sweetly accented Pampered Pooch to the refreshing Spanish Harlem Rose to the whiskey-and-gin-spiked Queen of Mean, the specialty cocktail menu at Trouble’s Trust is at once adventurous and intriguing. A collection of vintage specialty cocktails provides a wide range of classic drinks, including the Old Fashioned, Cosmopolitan and Manhattan, among others.
The Midtown East bar also serves a variety of wines by the bottle and glass, along with high-end spirits, tea, coffee, and a collection of draft and bottled beer.
