It’s a Good Day to Say ‘Bonjour’ to Paris Cafe Again

In case you hadn’t heard, one of New York’s oldest pubs is back. A new version of the 149-year-old Paris Cafe recently reopened after more than 18 months of pandemic shutdown. 

The Seaport’s bar and restaurant — established in 1873 — shut its doors in May 2020, but reopened in November with a new owner and new outdoor seating. Yet it also maintained the same beautifully restored German Victorian bar and handsome brick walls. 

The menu features dishes inspired by Napoleon himself, and the bar counts Thomas Edison, Teddy Roosevelt, Lauren Bacall and Butch Cassidy among its patrons over the years. Today’s patrons can catch glimpses of the Brooklyn Bridge in the East River while dining outdoors, or cozy up to the bar and watch a game on the bar’s many TVs indoors. 

The Paris Cafe is located at 119 South Street.
