Established in 1873 as a swanky hotel, The Paris is rumored to have housed local famous folk Thomas Edison and Teddy Roosevelt, as well as traveling gun-slingers Annie Oakley, and Buffalo Bill Cody plus Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. Over 100 years later, the tap room's windows gaze out at the nearby Brooklyn Bridge and weathered cobblestone streets—an oasis of history in tourist-laden South Street Seaport. Post-and-beam ceilings and a mix of brick and dark, worn, elaborately-carved wood establish a mellow comfort zone, at the center of which sits a large U-shaped bar that serves as a virtual alcohol pit for mostly over-40 men who won’t hesitate to belt out the chorus from American Pie while downing shots and sipping pints. A projection TV displays the major game of the day, while smaller wall-mounted televisions and video games offer ancillary entertainment. For those hankering for a bite or two, the mostly-Continental, fish-filled menu suggests a wide variety of entrees and apps, all of which can be ordered at the bar or in the adjacent dining room.


Kitchen is open daily until 2 a.m.
