Our Story

Whiskey Tavern opened on July 27th, 2008 by the owners of Whiskey Town: George Ruotolo, Justin Ruotolo and Rob Magill.

Their philosophy is simple: well poured drinks, reasonable prices, good music, a comfortable setting and great service.

Whiskey Tavern is a true New York City Tavern.

Whiskey Tavern has sister bars in the Lower East Side (Whiskey Town), Brooklyn (Whiskey Brooklyn), (The Whiskey Annex), (The Little Whiskey), and (The Big Whiskey), as well as a curated liquor store with over 100 different whiskies and select spirits (The Whiskey Shop).
