In the former space of a ground floor post office at the Empire State Building, the company behind the Campbell Apartment and the World Bar at Trump World Tower are planning a 3,500 square foot cocktail lounge called the Empire Room. Hospitality Holdings owner and CEO Mark Grossich said, "The Empire Room, like our other lounges, will be an architecturally significant space located in an architecturally significant building. The Empire State Building is perhaps the most iconic building in The United States and one of the most recognizable in the world.  Similar to our Campbell Apartment, The Empire Room will harken back to the golden age of the 1920s and 30s with its theme, A Toast to Another Time."

Eater has wondered if there will be a dress code as tough as Campbell Apartment's and snarked, "Look at that carpet! Those chandeliers! It's like being on a third tier cruise line or maybe a Marriott Renaissance." Well, it is a bit more fancy than other restaurants at the Empire State Building, which include Chipotle, Europa Café, Heartland Brewery, Rosa's Pizza and Uncle Louie G's (ice cream parlor).
