Pete's Tavern

129 E. 18th St.
Manhattan, NY 10003


Pete's Tavern, the oldest continuously operating bar and restaurant in New York City, opened its doors in 1864 and remained open as a speakeasy throughout prohibition. Since then, Pete's Tavern has remained exactly as it was when the doors opened, with a beautiful original rosewood bar, pressed tin ceiling and original tiled floor. In 1905, O.Henry wrote "The Gift of the Magi" in the first booth in the bar room. The food, beverages and service are all outstanding, and this historic restaurant is a must-visit for New Yorkers and tourists alike.
