THE LIBRARY AT THE PUBLIC
The Library is one of downtown’s best-kept secrets, tucked away on the Public Theater's mezzanine. The elegant restaurant and bar are named for the Astor Library, in a nod to both the United States’ first public library and the landmarked building that now houses the Public Theater. This supper club acts as a watering hole and backstage lounge to downtown characters, neighborhood dwellers, theater-goers, academics, and artists alike. You never know what stories will unfold over dinner and cocktails at the Library.
