Louisiana joined the Union on April 30, 1812. For a Louisiana-focused NYC bar crawl, we suggest including Ninth Ward at 180 Second Avenue in Manhattan’s East Village, Delta Grill at 700 Ninth Avenue and Bourbon Street Bar & Grill at 346 W. 46th Street; both in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen.
A few new Manhattan bars have popped up on our radar and we hope to include these in upcoming NYC bar crawls. Over in Alphabet City, Mockingbird at 25 Avenue B (below the Tex-Mex eatery Avenida) picks up where Idle Hands left off. We gather that Mockingbird is more Speakeasy than beer bar. A few miles north in Midtown East, Sutton Bar Room at 1074 First Avenue has opened in the same space as Sin Bin (the space was State of Grace prior to Sin Bin). And, by Penn Station, Rock & Reilly (a Los Angeles import) has just opened in a rooftop location at the Marriott Hotel at 218 West 35th Street. After we’ve had a chance to pub crawl to these spots, we will have a review of each in this space. Stay tuned.
On April 7, 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act became law, allowing the manufacture and sale of beer that was up to 4% alcohol-by-volume. It wasn’t until December 5, 1933 that the full repeal of Prohibition was complete.
For a Scottish NYC bar crawl, we recommend the following Manhattan pubs: Caledonia, at 1609 Second Avenue; St. Andrew’s, at 140 W. 46th Street; Shoolbred’s, at 197 Second Avenue. In Brooklyn, visit The Craic at 488 Driggs Ave and Duke of Montrose at 47 5th Ave.
April 1 has arrived and that means that the enjoyable, warmer NYC pub crawling weather is just around the corner! (Let’s hope so, anyway).
On this Vernal Equinox, our NYC Bar of the Day: Spring Lounge, located at 48 Spring Street in Manhattan’s Little Italy.
Our favorite non-holiday random calendar day of the year! The arrival of the First Saturday of March is very meaningful to us at Pub Crawl NYC. Though the calendar still says winter, March marks the end of the super-cold, long, dark winter months of December, January and February. Spring (and good pub crawling weather) is just ahead.
And, if you’re looking for a pub crawl for today, the annual Hoboken, NJ St. Patrick’s bar crawl takes place today. More info here.
It has arrived once again, our favorite month of the year! There will be numerous Irish NYC pub crawls around the city. We’ll provide info on some. If you would prefer to create your own pub crawl, we can help, free of charge! We just ask that you visit and “like” our facebook fanpage first, www.facebook.com/pubcrawlnyc and follow us on twitter (@nycpubcrawl). We’ve visited the overwhelming majority of bars across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. And we’re happy to share our wealth of knowledge. Drop us a note on facebook.
