Occupying a conspicuous corner spot near Gramercy Park, Pete’s Tavern is fairly hard to miss. With a history stretching back to 1864, Pete’s remains the only continuously operated bar since that time, and has never been closed. The tavern’s fascinating heritage has been largely helped by one particular regular whom frequented the bar on an almost daily basis. Literary great William Sydney Porter (better known as O.Henry) wrote his 1902 epic “Gift of The Magi” from a coveted booth position overlooking Irving Place. The bar has also featured greatly within several well-known movies and television dramas including: Sex and The City, and Ragtime. Serving delicious Italian-American fayre, Pete’s has become known for it’s tasty Buffalo Wings, however they also serve up a mean Linguine.
