Oscar Wilde Themed Bar Opened In New York

Oscar Wilde Themed Bar

A bar inspired by, and named after, the iconic Irish playwright and author, Oscar Wilde, has just opened in New York City. Covering a total of 5874 square feet, the Victorian-style bar also boasts New York City’s longest bar top, stretching to a staggering 118.5 feet. It also has an additional standing whiskey bar with over 300 spirits, which reflects both the Victorian and Prohibition eras.

“We named our newest bar after Oscar Wilde, since he was longtime friends with Lillie Langtry, a successful British actress and socialite of the late 19th Century,” say co-owners Tommy Burke and Frank McCole. “Coming from County Mayo and County Monaghan in Ireland, we grew up reading Oscar Wilde and studying his literature. We want the bar to celebrate his legacy and become an inclusive destination for all.”
Oscar Wilde’s touts a selection of more than 300 spirits, 32 beers on tap, antique design artifacts, a private event space, and fabulous signature cocktails such as the “50 Shades of Dorian Gray” crafted with Plymouth gin, cherry liqueur, Chinese five spice, and citrus.

Food options include creative plates like Crispy Cauliflower Buffalo Wings, as well as traditional staples like Cottage Pie and the “Wilde Burger,” made with Irish Beef and homemade, pickled vegetables.
