$ 40.00| £ 30.00 (* recommended retail price)

Acclaimed photographers James and Karla Murray invite readers inside the doors of thirty legendary watering holes to discover how each has contributed to the social and cultural fabric of New York City.

For nearly three centuries, people have been gathering in New York City taverns, bars, and pubs. Celebrating the historical significance of thirty of those establishments, this book features gorgeous full-color photographs by James and Karla Murray, the award-winning team behind Store Front NYC. Each drinking den is paired with engaging descriptions that capture the location’s unique identity, penned by journalist Dan Q. Dao. There’s the White Horse Tavern, frequented by writers such as Dylan Thomas and James Baldwin; the Stonewall Inn, renowned for its role in the LGBTQ+ rights movement; the King Cole Bar in the St. Regis Hotel, a sophisticated lounge adorned with a mural by Maxfield Parrish; and quintessential neighborhood dive Rudy’s Bar & Grill, where cheap beer and free hot dogs are served with a side of vintage grittiness. Filled with legends and stories, it also includes a map. Whether they’re looking to soak up some NYC history or raise a glass to fit their mood, this helpful guide will ensure readers that they’ll find a place to have a good, stiff drink.
