As opulent as a traditional Irish pub could possibly be.

6 W. 33rd St., New York, NY, 10001



Known For

The lowdown

This spot is as opulent as a traditional Irish pub could possibly be — particularly a Koreatown outpost flanked by a comic-book store, a porn warehouse, and a strip club. Legends’ elaborate interior includes vaulted ceilings, dark-stained pine, cushioned booths, and a low-lit, folded-napkin restaurant. And while the spot is miles from the soggy modesty of classic limey dives, operations at this epic three-level Celtic oasis still center on the standards of glorified comfort food, live sporting events, and attendant whoops from the white-collar after-work crowd.
