Adam Hersh Auctions and As Was Assist With eBay Auction of Famous Bar from New York’s Le Cirque 2000 Restaurant

Share Article

The New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan has an auction on eBay for the famous bar that was in the Le Cirque 2000 restaurant. Famous for the architecture and the celebrities who sat there, this bar can now be owned by anybody.

New York City's world-famous Le Cirque 2000 restaurant closed in late 2004. It was known for its fabulous French cuisine as much as it was known for the frequent visits from celebrities and international dignitaries, often seen around the bar. As the beginning of its effort to clear the abandoned restaurant for something new, the New York Palace Hotel is auctioning the legendary bar on eBay.

As Was, an eBay Certified Service Provider, designed the custom template used for this auction. "We’re proud to have been a part of such a fun and unique project," remarked As Was Founder and President, Debbie Levitt. "Any individual or restaurateur now has the opportunity to own a piece of New York’s culinary and social history."

Adam Hersh Auctions, one of eBay's most successful and prominent Trading Assistants, is managing the auctions. AHA photographed the bar, wrote the description, determined strategies for the listings, and acted as liaison with eBay. Adam Hersh, CEO of AHA, explains, "We're really excited at the opportunity to help sell a piece of New York City history."

This auction launched on Friday, August 5, 2005 and ends Monday, August 15, 2005. To place your bids now, please follow the auction links from the New York Palace case study page on the As Was website at
