Wilde

There is a NYC Bar Entirely Dedicated to Oscar Wilde

Fans of Oscar Wilde prepare yourselves; a new bar in NYC is entirely dedicated to the man himself!

 

Dedicated to the literary figure who challenged cultural norms restricting sexuality and offered us some of the best works of fiction, the Oscar Wilde bar, appropriately named, is a Victorian-style bar that welcomes customers with décor (and drinks) that brings vintage glamour to a modern audience.

From a French fireplace to antique clocks, all set to the time of Oscar Wilde’s death, this distinct bar can make literary lovers feel like they stepped right into an Oscar Wilde novel.

While the incredible collectibles will steal any customer’s eye, the alcoholic beverages will really win them over. Featuring New York City’s longest bar top of 118.5 feet, the bar reportedly serves over 200 spirits, 32 beers on tap, and signature cocktails such as “50 Shades of Dorian Gray.”
