The bar where I used to hang out had a second story for the proper folks to escape the ruckus and smoke from the surly drunks downstairs. Fraunces Tavern’s upstairs played host to the Sons of the Revolution as they sipped their ale and plotted succession from the King of England. Today it is a wonderful museum full of historical artifacts and should be on everyone’s tour itinerary. Unfortunately the taps are dry so if you get thirsty during your visit take a short walk over to Stone and Pearl Streets which has all the pubs and restaurants you could ask for. If you are really hungry then stop at Delmonico’s, one of New York Cities oldest restaurants.
