The Dead Poet

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
There is no mistaking the theme at this Upper West Side bar: Framed literary verses and portraits of writing greats hang from exposed-brick walls. Specialty cocktails bear names like the Edgar Allan Poe (vodka, triple sec and lemon) and the Jack Kerouac (tequila, blue curaçao, fresh lemon and lime), while Guinness—poured with a shamrock carefully drawn into its foam—anchors the 13 taps and an extensive Irish whiskey selection that would make any heavy-drinking writer proud. Grab a classic from the small in-house library to skim before the rowdier night crowd arrives.
