4 Best Bars on Stone Street
While many believe Lower Manhattan is strictly business, there is actually a thriving bar scene – you just have look past One Wall Street and Deutsche Bank. Aside from the lively South Street Seaport, Stone Street is full of happening bars and restaurants. One of the oldest streets in New York City, it has survived colonization, World Wars, the Great Fire and Great Depression but don’t let its antiquated namesake fool you—Stone Street is a hot spot with youthful crowds. Here are four bars we recommend:
(52 Stone Street, New York)
Tucked away in the heart of the bustling Financial District, Stone Street Tavern’s charming old world ambiance is a pleasant view into the past and something a little less stuffy than what you might normally find in the Financial District. Their house beer, Stone Street Tavern Pilsner, is light and crisp in flavor and pairs well with the Crab Cake, made of lump crabmeat, corn succotash with roasted jalapeno remoulade.
(55 Stone Street, New York)
A new addition to the historic Stone Street, The Growler Bites and Brews occupies an 1837 Dutch Revival building; however, their beverages are far from pre-historic. From housemade grenadine to earl grey infused Tanqueray gin, do not underestimate their craft cocktails that are unique to the area. Our personal favorite is The Chili Chuhuahua made with Olmeca Altos Blanco Tequila, grapefruit soda, chili salt and a splash of lime.
(57 Stone Street, New York)
Ever torn between spending an evening at a wine bar or a whiskey joint? You’ll never need to compromise again at Wintry Wine and Whiskey. This speakeasy-styled bar embodies the antiquity of Stone Street yet fulfills the desires of all ages. From a selection of 55 different wines to a vast collection of whiskeys from Scotland, Japan, Canada and Ireland, there’s something for everyone.
(6 Stone Street, New York)
If you’re in the area looking for a fun, casual bar, stop by Murphy’s. Nothing fancy, nothing over the top—just your average dive bar offering beers at reasonable prices and traditional bar bites like chicken fingers or French onion soup. The best part is every day from 4pm to 8pm enjoy happy hour specials like $5 NY brewery draft beers, well drinks and wine.
