Oscar Wilde

Irish owners, Tommy Burke and Frank McCole have opened this new bar in Midtown, paying homage to their country’s celebrated author.

The team, who also owns bars, Lille’s Times Square, Lillie’s Union Square, and Papillon Bistro & Bar, have opened Oscar Wilde in the same building that once housed the Volstead Act aka the Bureau of Prohibition.

Claiming to host New York City’s longest bar at 118.5 feet, Oscar Wilde comprises a lush and lavish space, featuring an eclectic mix of antiques, including clocks, chandeliers and cabinets, as well as wood panelling, wallpaper and gold pillars.

Food options range from crispy cauliflower Buffalo wings to lamb sliders and a banger in a blanket (sausage wrapped in pastry); as well as larger plates like the signature Wilde burger and the mussels in white wine sauce.

Drinks include everything U can imagine, from a huge selection of beers, wines and champagnes to inventive and classic cocktails.
