Drinking Jameson first but was offered one of the house whiskey and continues with that from there on. Food was pub fare, but good, tvs everywhere, popular music dj was fine for a Saturday afternoon and tons of bar games like pop a shot, ski ball and more. Very large and fun.

I found this place courtesy of trip advisor as we stayed in Chinatown and wanted to go for a drink. It was very easy to find and as we entered we was greeted by a very bouncer who asked if we're drinking or eating or both. We said both so he said we could take the pick of where we... More

This is our son's favorite bar. Here's an example why. The night before we came by for drinks, by pure luck we ran into the owner at a bar in Brooklyn. My wife and I were from out of town. Our son, who knew the owner, told him we were coming in the next day. The owner asked us our... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this place while walking through Chinatown and were so glad we did. Great little place with great people. It's out of the way, down a side street so it's filled with mostly locals. Small , cozy local bar and it was perfect. Met one bartender Brandon who was great. Took care of us, seemed... More

Went for a quick drink before dinner but ended up staying for several drinks. Great atmosphere and service as you should expect from a NY bar! Must try whiskey house speciality as you will not be disappointed!

Super friendly place. Arrived on Sunday after three days of hard partying in NYC for a birthday. Was lovely to find a great personal message for the birthday girl. Wish we have started there as hangovers prevented any chance of carrying on the party! Food was great, simple and tasty. I had the tacos Mexican style which were delicious.

We came to Whiskey Tavern the evening of September 6, 2016 after getting engaged at the Jays vs. Yankees game. The staff working that night made an adorable sign for us after we told them our big news. We enjoyed the night chatting with the staff and the food was also great! Thank you so much again!

If you are looking for a local spot with reasonable food and drink prices with a cool atmosphere then Whiskey Tavern might just be the place for you. The wings and tacos were great along with friendly service. They offer daily specials where you can get some decent food and a drink for under $10. Nice.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
