The 5 Best Bars for Happy Hours in Tribeca
Famous for its loft apartments, celebrity residents and annual film festival, TriBeCa, short for Triangle Below Canal, has been one of Lower Manhattan’s hottest neighborhoods for decades. What was once an industrial area full of abandoned warehouses is now home to some of New York City’s best art, dining, shopping and real estate.
Despite being one of Gotham’s most expensive zip codes, Tribeca also has some great happy hours. Here are our favorites.
Terroir’s exposed brick walls, communal tables, Italian-inspired tapas and impressive vino list make for one of the best happy hours in Tribeca. As far as the atmosphere goes, many note that unlike some other wine bars, Terroir doesn’t take itself too seriously. On owners Paul Grieco and Marco Canora, The Infatuation noted: “These guys are enjoying themselves, and so are the people that come to their establishments.”
Terroir’s happy hour takes place every day, with discounted wines by the glass for as little as $4.

Everyone loves a good old-fashioned dive bar, and even in trendy Tribeca, happy hour at Nancy Whiskey Pub is a local favorite.

3. Puffy’s Tavern
This long-beloved neighborhood bar in the heart of Tribeca serves a wide selection of draft and bottled beers, fine wines and authentic Italian sandwiches.

5. The Wooly Public
Tucked inside the ultra-historic Woolworth Building is the aptly named Wooly Public. Although it only opened in February 2017, it’s already a favorite of Tribeca residents for happy hour. The bar pays perfect homage to the hundred-year-old, neo-Gothic National Historic Landmark skyscraper it calls home, with its faux-marble wallpaper, retro hanging plants and framed vintage artwork. Expect to see a mixed crowd, from suit-clad Wall Street traders to casual imbibers.
