Details

The Old Waldorf hotel was built next door to William Astor's aunt, on the present day spot on the Empire State Building, because of a dispute with her. When she moved uptown, the Old Waldorf Hotel joined with the Astoria hotel by a structure known as Peacock Alley, becoming eventually one entity.

The Waldorf-Astoria had a rich history because of the forward thinking devices such as allowing women to enter unescorted thus enabling the hotel to become a female society spot.

As for drinks, the Waldorf Astoria is said to have been location for the invention of the Bronx and popularizer of the Old Fashioned.

Luckily, A.S. Crocket also gives the wonderfully humorous history of the hotels bar and a historical view of how drink recipes changed before and after prohibition.
