The Whiskey Ward

121 Essex St
Manhattan, NY 10002
Lower East Side


This Lower East Side mainstay backs up its name with an absurdly thorough menu of whiskeys, serving more than a dozen single malts and a long list of bourbons—from small batch to single barrel—including a 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle. The bar itself is boisterous on the weekends and mellow on the weekdays, when whiskey fans gather around the well-maintained pool table.
