The Wooly Public

Perfect For: Action at the Bar Big Groups

The Wooly Public is a cocktail bar and restaurant in the bottom of the Woolworth Building. It feels like a fossil imprint of a once-hip place because it used to be cool a few years back, but now it’s cool in a historical way. There’s a pretty spacious dance floor area, a big bar with a TV showing vintage footage of the 1989 Macy’s Day parade, and some tables that may have been Scrabble boards in a previous life. And while this feels like a bizarre cross section of an "Old New York" aesthetic and circa 2011 party spot, it works as a quirky place to hang out with a friend or two. The crowd splits between FiDi-working-people who are meeting for drinks and tourists who decide to order a burger here. We’d recommend the former.
