Cipriani 55 Wall is the epitome of the never-ending bond between food and real estate. Located in the Financial District, Cipriani offers an exclusive scene through its architecture, design and gastronomy. 


Its Financial District location, located inside the former National City Bank- according to Travel+Leisure, serves as the perfect meeting place for stockbrokers and traders who do business or work in Wall Street. The Cipriani 55 Club is the Cipriani family’s eigth in New York City, and just like the other locations, its glamorous offerings attract notable guests. 

The Cipriani history dates back to 1931, when Giuseppe Cipriani opened Harry’s Bar on Venice’s Piazza San Marco. 55 Wall Street, the building where Cipriani Club 55 is located, is a New York City landmark since 1965, according to Downtown Magazine


The Greek revival-style building was constructed between 1836 and 1842 by architect Isaiah Rogers. “The façade of the building features twelve large Ionic columns, each carved from a single block of Quincy granite,” stated Mike Hammer, from Downtown Magazine. “The building was remodeled in 1899 by National City Bank who commissioned Charles McKim for the project.”

In the words of Zagat: “[Cipriani Club 55 offers] ‘chic’ surrounds, including a columned terrace over Wall Street and a ‘spectacular’ perch above Grand Central’s concourse (with a take-out bakery/café across the street.)”


The menu offers traditional Italian dishes- among the best ones, according to New York Times reviewers, are the octopus carpaccio, pappardelle with lamb ragù, calf’s liver, osso buco, and the cakes.


Its history, landmark architecture, impeccable service, and upscale gastronomical options, make Cipriani 55 the ultimate prestige destination.
