Pier A Harbor House
22 Battery Place
(at Battery Park)
American (Traditional), Bar
More casual than fancy

The first floor at the historic—and lovingly restored—Pier A Harbor House is casual, with no reservations; it’s as much of a bar as a restaurant, with oysters and pub-style food. (There might be more TVs than you care for but so what—look at the restoration and the views!) On the second floor is Cuban-themed BlackTail (which has its own entrance); the old-fashioned Commissioner’s Bar; and private spaces. And there are more private-event spaces on he third floor.
