Welcome to the Monkey Bar

Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter recently re-launched the Monkey Bar in Manhattan, a hip new spot for editors and writers who can still afford to get drinks in Midtown.

As the NY Observer reported, the watering-hole first opened its doors during the Great Depression, attracting novelist Harold Robbins and playwright Tennessee Williams. The bar also features mural of famous cultural figures, inspiring guessing-games among guests.

Yesterday, Joshua David Stein (who took that photo) uncovered the literary figures adorning the walls of the refurbished bar: “[It's a] who’s who of who is in New York between the wars. We have Fred Astaire, this is the Fred Astaire who appeared on Broadway with his sister. There’s also Henry Luce, Herb Ross, Conde Nast, Blanche and Adolph Ochs, the Fitzgeralds–Zelda and F Scott, Billie Rose, Dorothy Parker and Edna Ferber.” (Via Gawker)
