Tavern on the GreenThe Highlights
Established in 1934, when it replaced the sheepfold, Tavern on the Green has since become a New York City icon.
Tavern on the Green is a modern tavern nestled in a rustic Central Park setting. Centered around a hearty menu shaped by local, seasonal ingredients, Tavern on the Green invites patrons into a warm, celebratory gathering space that captures the spirit of Central Park and the energy of New York City. The restaurant consisted of several rooms, including the well-known Crystal Room, which offered beautiful views of the adjacent garden. During its early years, Tavern on the Green was known for its spacious dance floor that offered nightly dancing to live music, surrounded by Elm trees and twinkling lights. As the century progressed, the restaurant was frequented by famous artists and celebrities such as Grace Kelly and Fay Wray. John Lennon celebrated several of his birthdays at Tavern on the Green in the late 70's, and it was the restaurant of choice for opening night festivities of Broadway shows.
