Croton Reservoir Tavern was opened in 2003 and was created in memory of the forgotten landmark FORTRESS RESERVOIR which used to stand in place of the current New York Public Library and Bryant Park. Featuring a wondrous hand painted 150 sq foot mural of the reservoir in all its glory, dining at the Croton Reservoir Tavern allows you to enjoy a palpable turn of the century New York experience. The tavern’s 50 foot oak bar, brass studded leather chairs, wrought iron railings and leather banquette seating lay the backdrop for warmth and good cheer. Modern American cuisine and NYC’s most popular drinks are prepared to the highest of standards and served with relaxed charm and cheerful attentive service. Croton’s comfortable and casual atmosphere, vibrant social scene, quality dining and special event hosting has made it one of New York’s most popular venues for dining and private events.
