Our History

Pete's Tavern is the oldest continuously operating restaurant & bar in New York City. As befitting an official New York historical landmark we stay true to our traditions. Pete's Tavern continues to serve the best in Italian-American cuisine & our famous 1864 House Ale with the same kind of high quality neighborhood service that made O. Henry a loyal regular at the last turn of the century. Experience the traditions that have made Pete's Tavern a success for over a hundred and forty years by having your next office or private party in our Skylight Banquet Room. We offer several menu plans (including open bar and buffets) for your consideration. Pete's Tavern also offers its expert staff of chefs, servers & bartenders for off premise catering services.
