The Baccarat Hotel is across the street from the MOMA in midtown Manhattan. Mom and I stopped to have a cocktail during our weekend trip to NYC.
Baccarat Crystal is a manufacturer of fine crystal glassware located in Baccarat, France.
The doorman guided us into the building, into a small room which was all black, with this lovely pedestal chandelier lighting up the small foyer:
The elevator took us up to the Grand Salon:
and the Petit Salon:
The chandeliers were exquisite:
The outdoor terrace overlooked the MOMA:
But we decided to have our cocktails in the bar:
The tables had crystal candle globes….
….crystal water glasses...
... crystal cocktail glasses...
…and crystal ice buckets!
Mom thoroughly enjoyed her martini!
We toured the salons and found more lovely crystal pieces….
….crystal window treatments…
It's well worth the visit if you get the chance!

I also took Mom into Tiffany to see the Tiffany Diamond.
Unfortunately we saw this:
She tried on a Paloma Picasso bracelet - Price tag of $100,000.00! There were so many little diamonds on this dainty arm jewel!
NO, she did not purchase it, but found a few other treasures:
Around the corner was MacKenzie-Childs!
We met the nicest salesman, Justin, who will be coming up to Aurora to work at the Barn Sale this weekend!
I am hoping to see him there!
I checked out the newest tote bags and found out that Justin is reading my blog and was very familiar with the Traveling Tote series!
I made a little purchase, but decided to save my money for the Barn Sale!!
We ended the day with dinner at Trattoria Trecolori:
...a half block out of Times Square…
…and we stayed at the Edison Hotel:
Next week I will tell you about our tour of the city!
