A new bar, named after the life and legacy of the prolific 19th-century Irish writer, Oscar Wilde, claims to have one of the longest bars in the city. Irish owners, Tommy Burke and Frank McCole also own the bars, Lille’s Times Square, Lillie’s Union Square, and Papillon Bistro & Bar.
The bar is housed in the same building that once housed the Volstead Act (the Bureau of Prohibition). Now, the space is transformed into an incredibly lavish scene that offers plenty of space for revellers to drink and be very, very merry. They can accommodate over 300 customers to be seated at their huge marble bar or stating at nearby tables. The space itself is adorned with gold pillars and decorated with an eclectic mish-mash of mirrors, clocks, picture frames, chandeliers and odd knick knacks as well as plenty of Wilde’s quotes scattered about various areas of the space.
Food options include dishes 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.
There’s cocktails (both traditional and inventive), wines, champagnes and dozens of beers on tap.
In A Nutshell:
For the reading buffs among you, this will be a wildly fun spot to take advantage of.
