Summer isn’t over yet! There are still plenty of beautiful evenings to spend outside with good friends, delicious food, and cold drinks. Nestled between Hanover Square and Broad Street, Stone Street is a historic, cobblestoned back alleyway turned happy hour heaven. Stone Street is the place to be in the Financial District for after work drinks and Friday night dinners, especially in the summer when the restaurants and bars set up tables on the street to create a vibrant, open outdoor dining space.
Platinum Properties, located only blocks away from Stone Street, is here with the ultimate guide to summer on Stone Street.
Stone Street Tavern, 52 Stone Street
Grab a pint and enjoy this local favorite bar and restaurant’s low-key atmosphere, or come for a sunny brunch and get your Bloody Mary and mimosa fix. Must orders? Parmesan-crusted fries and the beer-battered grouper sandwich with tartar sauce.
Ulysses’ Folk House, 95 Pearl Street
Ulysses is a top-rated hotspot in FiDi, and for good reason. Its Irish pub vibe and buzzing outdoor scene attract the bankers of Wall Street after a long day at work, eager to relax and let off some steam. Make sure to stop by for Brewery Night on Tuesdays, when patrons can get a taste of the selected “brew of the month.”
Beckett’s Bar and Grill, 48 Stone Street
The building Beckett’s is located in has been around since 1603, but don’t let that fool you. This busy restaurant is the perfect combination of old and new, with its two floors and 24 TVs. Come by to catch a game and get pulled into the lively atmosphere.
The Growler Bites and Brews, 55 Stone Street
How can anyone say no to a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar? It’s just one of the things that keep the crowds coming to The Growler. It also has an endless draft beer list, a drool-worthy grilled shrimp BLT, and a cozy basement bar called Underdog.
The Dubliner, 45 Stone Street
The Irish fare and standard pub grub at The Dubliner are noteworthy, but what really makes The Dubliner worth the trip is its open outdoor vibe. Its location at the edge of Stone Street lets you in on the hustle and bustle of the happy hour horde without being too overwhelming. Go for a quiet work lunch or intimate drinks with a friend.
Route 66 Smokehouse, 46 Stone Street
If the hefty brisket sandwich with coleslaw and pickled jalapenos isn’t enough to bring you in, the variety of other eclectic BBQ selections and craft beers and cocktails will be. For genuine, all-American cuisine, Route 66 Smokehouse is the place to be.
Mad Dog and Beans, 83 Pearl Street
This Mexican Cantina is a must-try when you’re in FiDi. It serves the best guacamole and margaritas south of City Hall. The fun Western décor and festive after-work scene make it a staple spot for downtown locals in the mood for delicious, traditional Mexican fare.
Adrienne’s Pizzabar, 54 Stone Street
The famed Adrienne’s Pizzabar on Stone Street serves some of the best pies in Manhattan. Pair a glass of wine with a gourmet slice, including toppings ranging from fennel-spiced pork sausage to mouthwatering anchovies.
Vintry Wine and Whiskey, 57 Stone Street
Vintry Wine and Whiskey is a standout on Stone Street as a respite from the more crowded, boisterous bars and restaurants surrounding it. Vintry has a more refined selection of wine, whiskey, and cocktails. Enjoy dinner and drinks by candlelight here as you people watch on Stone Street.
