Manhattan Proper
6 Murray St.
(bet. Church and Broadway)
American (Traditional), Bar

Biddy Early’s became Woodrow’s. Uncle Mike’s gave way to Cricketers Arms. Now Murray Street’s gentrification continues with the Manhattan Proper Bar in the space that was Copper Barrel. The menu includes classics like wings, a chicken club, and mac and cheese, burgers, and so on. The bar is up front, with about a dozen stools, a lot of standing room, and a large window that’s open on nice days. The dining room, in back, seats around 50. The aesthetic is very black-and-white, with the exception of the televisions. Most of them are 70 inches, while a 103-inch projection TV is unrolled for football games.
