Historic Pub Crawl

Pub Crawl-Sept

Join the Historic Districts Council and Chrysalis Archeological Consultants for a taste of the architecture, history and beverages of some of New York City’s oldest watering holes. The tour will begin with a tasting of Chrysalis bitters, brewed from an historic recipe and inspired by a 19th century bottle recently found at a Bowery archaeological site, which promised to be an “Elixir of Long Life.” With that fortification , we will move on to the saw dust floors, neon signs and dumb waiters of 3 well-known and long-loved neighborhood establishments whose long lives have seen their share of social and architectural history. The tour will end with bar snacks and conversation. Really what more can you ask for…

    I’d like to reserve three spots on the tour but do not see a way to do so here. I see the “to purchase tickets for this event, click below” prompt but no place to click. Please advise.

      Hello thank you for your interest unfortunately the tour is currently sold out. I will add your name to a waiting list in the event that we do another one ( this is the second we have held) or extend the number of people allowed on the upcoming tour.

      Thank you
