The Paris Cafe

119 South Street
New York, NY 10038
Lower Manhattan


The breeze from the East River is just out the front door of the Paris Café, a lovable pub that’s more Irish American than French. One of the oldest haunts downtown, circa 1873, it claims to have obliged patrons (when it was Meyer’s Hotel) like Teddy Roosevelt and Buffalo Bill Cody. These days it’s best for watching sports and digging into fish and chips, juicy burgers and buttermilk fried chicken. Keep it in mind for happy hour or post-midnight hunger—the kitchen stays open until 2am.
