DRINK IN NEW YORK CITY HISTORY

Under Broadway and Bleecker in downtown Manhattan is a sophisticated yet timeless gathering place refined for the modern day. This incarnation of the popular 1850s watering hole frequented by poet Walt Whitman carries on the tradition started by Charles Pfaff of serving only the finest drinks and food to guests in a true-to-New York establishment.

 

Details abound in our subterranean lounge that evoke its past—from custom, handmade furniture inlaid with canvas paintings and a bar made of 450-year-old white oak to brick archways that lead to a private room with a fieldstone wall. Contemporary elegance is added with uniforms designed by Christian Siriano and menus printed on newspaper. Here you can still feel the history and culture of the Village in the 1850s while luxuriating in the present.
