The Polo Bar

Inspired by classic New York establishments and Ralph Lauren’s love of gathering around the table with family and friends, The Polo Bar offers a casual yet refined setting for food and drink in the heart of NYC. From the Henry Koehler polo match–inspired mural on the exterior to the saddle leather and equestrian art inside, the restaurant pays homage to the distinguished sporting lifestyle long synonymous with the Ralph Lauren brand. The Polo Bar’s American cuisine is inspired by Ralph Lauren’s personal favorites. Seasonal dishes range from a crispy kale salad and crabcakes to a corned beef sandwich, steak, and the signature Polo Bar Burger. Beef from Ralph Lauren’s Double RL Ranch in Colorado will be offered at select times throughout the year. The star of the dessert list is Ralph’s Coffee Ice Cream, homemade with Ralph’s custom coffee blend. To drink, guests can choose from classic cocktails and a diverse selection of wines and other fine spirits. The Polo Bar waitstaff is outfitted in custom Ralph Lauren grey flannel trousers, leather wingtips, and silk repp ties.
