We are proud to offer one of Gramercy Park’s only private party rooms! Pete’s Tavern is the oldest continuously operating restaurant & bar in New York City.

As befitting an official New York historic landmark, we stay true to our traditions. Pete’s Tavern continues to feature a menu packed with New York’s favorite dishes. Our famous 1864 House Ale is served today much like 120 years ago, when O. Henry was a loyal regular at Pete’s. Experience the traditions that have made Pete’s Tavern a local and National treasure for over 155 years by having your next office or private party/meeting in our Speakeasy Private Room. The banquet room is available at no extra charge and we offer several menu plans (including sit down “Family Style” lunches & dinners, buffets and various passed hors d’oeuvres) for your consideration. Pete’s Tavern offers its expert staff of event planners with a combined 70 years of experience. If you have any questions or specific requests please contact us. We will do our best to accommodate your specific needs.

The Private Speakeasy Room is located on the second floor, directly above the restaurant. It is accessed through the rear of the restaurant by way of a 17 step staircase with brass handrails on both sides (there is no elevator access). The Speakeasy Room has its own private bar and private restrooms. Its original brick walls are adorned with photographs of celebrities who have visited the iconic tavern over the years. The room features an original tin ceiling, accentuated by a grand skylight and the original rosewood bar. The room's gracious french doors open onto a Juliet balcony overlooking treelined East 18th Street.
