AAA Inspector Notes
Housed in an 1892 structure, this absolutely rustic Union Square-area establishment still features many historic architectural elements, including a pressed-tin ceiling, magnificent bar and beveled-glass mirrors. Hearty tavern food is served in generous portions. The experience here is an incredible window into a grittily authentic, earlier version of New York City. Actor Tom Cruise bartended for some days here incognito to hone his skills behind the bar prior to filming the 1980s hit film “Cocktail.”
