I had really high hopes for the Campbell Apartment after reading some of the reviews here. When we arrived at the entrance the hostess wouldn't seat us as one of the members of our party was wearing a "t-shirt". It was a little frustrating because I would have argued that it wasn't a t-shirt at all. It was a fitted shirt and brand new without any logo or writing on the front. The hostess was very kind though, and none of us felt like putting up a fuss. I did get to catch a glimpse of the inside and while it was a very cool style I didn't feel like the ambiance was anything incredible. The dress code did allow us to sit at the outside bar and we enjoyed some cocktails there. They were out of ingredients for several of the cocktails but I settled on the blood orange. It was good, but again, we visited several other bars in NYC where I felt the ambiance and drinks were much better. We learned our lesson though, and made sure the gentleman in our group wore button down shirts for the rest of the trip.
