A Guide to the Tribeca Cocktail Scene


Sipping a cocktail with friends is one of the traditional ways that Manhattanites unwind. From skinny martinis and oaky pours of single malt to bespoke mixologist-brewed concoctions, cocktails provide New Yorkers with the perfect coda to a long day. Located in Tribeca, The Woolworth Tower Residences are within easy walking distance of the best cocktail bars in the city, making these luxury Downtown Manhattan condos the perfect base for a summer spent in rooftop bars and gin joints. Read below for The Woolworth Tower Residences guide to finding the ideal cocktail in Tribeca.

“Make It Again, Sam”
Mixology, or the science of mixing cocktails, is now an established style around Tribeca, and no place elevates this science to an art like Ward III, just a seven-minute walk from The Woolworth Tower Residences. This velvet-curtained saloon is staffed by veteran bartenders who will craft unique cocktails based on the guest’s instructions, no matter how vague or detailed. Best of all, if they make a drink that the guest just can’t live without, the recipe won’t disappear into the aether: upon request, the mixologists will file away the recipe under the guest’s name for future reference.

Residents who prefer a little bit of music with their mixology will love The 75 Club, which was named “Best New Jazz Den” by New York Magazine’s food and restaurant blog last year. This cozy club offers live jazz from 5 pm on Tuesdays through Saturdays, and the bartenders are always there to sling classic cocktails or mix up something special upon request. Best of all, while relatively new, The 75 Club occupies a landmarked cast-iron townhouse built by the man who patented cast-iron architecture, and it’s located at the former site of another legendary jazz club, Silver Lining!

Your Choice: Casual, Elegant, Always Delicious
Along with refined mixology spots, Tribeca is home to bars ranging from high-end places to watch a football game to taverns featuring farm-fresh food and extensive craft beer menus. Sports fans will love the classic wood-paneled Dark Horse, the only bar in New York City with tableside televisions for watching the game. People looking for a slightly more refined experience should head to Manhattan Proper, the “trendiest sports bar” in Tribeca, where guests have their pick of upscale appetizers, an extensive beer and wine list along with a full bar, and a 103-inch projector screen for football games. And nearby Mudville 9 is there when it’s time to fill up on a specialty like their Burrata Burger. Best of all, when you’re ready to head home, The Woolworth Tower Residences are less than a 10-minute walk away.
