A true New York classic: Ancient mariners sit side by side with sports nuts, frat boys, and hip preppies (a scene from The Last Days of Disco was filmed here) who struggle valiantly not to use their cell phones. Everyone's come for the perfectly sized, house-made burgers—not too big but not too small—which are also some of the city's tastiest. And if you sit downstairs, keep your eyes on the end of the bar to see your order arrive from the upstairs kitchen via dumbwaiter.


A post-work mob scene has been sidling up to Old Town's mahogany bar since 1892.

The kitchen closes at 11:30pm Monday through Saturday and at 10pm on Sunday.
