The Scene

Named for the 19th-century actress, model, and socialite Lillie Langtry, Lillie's is an Irish-Victorian bar popular with business people, creative types, and weekend pub crawlers.

Named for the 19th-century actress, model, and socialite Lillie Langtry, Lillie’s is an Irish-Victorian bar popular with business people, creative types, and weekend pub crawlers.

Although rushed office types hurrying to the back tables for a quick lunch and free Wi-Fi probably won’t notice the rotary phone, tinted glass, and vintage portrait that make up the little shrine to Langtry, the venue’s history isn’t lost on the writers, musicians, and cultured young professionals who pack the place after work to sip drinks at the beautifully restored Victorian carved-wood bar shipped all the way from Belfast.

Gold-topped columns, a marble fireplace, and authentic Victoriana sprinkled throughout the high-ceilinged salon create a demure but luxurious backdrop for the chatty groups and couples gathered on velvet Chesterfield banquettes, though the vibe is anything but reserved.

Once the after-work crowd winds down, the place is taken over by a younger college-aged clientele engaged in the kind of energetic discussion and subtle flirting that Lillie Langtry – famed mistress to Edward, Prince of Wales – would approve of.

Despite its antique décor and historic namesake, Lillie’s is anything but stodgy, as evidenced by the permanently upbeat vibe and capacity weekend crowds.

Tip from Emma:

Lillie’s is pretty quiet on weekday afternoons, so it’s the perfect time to take advantage of their free Wi-Fi – the passkey is on the menu – and indulge in their awesome $10 lunch special. Can’t beat that price for an entrée and a draft beer!

  • Crowd

    A mix of local young professionals, business people, actors, students, writers, and musicians, 20s to late 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient up-tempo music. Live Celtic band on Saturdays 4–7pm. Free Wi-Fi.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Bar menu featuring spinach artichoke dip and fried calamari, and full menu offering hearty Irish and British dishes like fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, and Irish stew, both available daily until 2am. Brunch menu served Sa–Su 11am–4pm.

  • Prices

    Bar menu $7–$20, entrées $10–$18, brunch $8–$15. Beer $6–$12, wine $8–$12/glass or $30–$86/bottle, cocktails $12, champagne $10–$19/glass or $32–$118/bottle, whiskey $8–$35.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Jeans, button-downs, and after-work attire. Dressier on weekends.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursday and Friday nights for the best singles scene, Saturdays for a slightly younger college crowd and live Celtic music, and any weekday after work, though reservations are recommended.

  • Close By

    Havana Central (22 East 17th Street) is a fabulously festive and authentic Cuban restaurant with live music on the weekends.

Great lunch place
Daria W. May 13, 2013
I've been there several times meeting with friends who also work in midtown. Place looks interesting with very high ceilings and you can easily imagine yourself being in a movie shot. Food is good, they have lunch specials which are a good deal (I would highly recommend their shepherd’s pie!) and bartenders (we were sitting at the bar all the time) are pretty, knowledgeable and easy going.
Great unique atmosphere, long bar, good options
Johana S. Dec 12, 2012
This is a typical after work bar for the area that also has a lunch special with a beer and a burger for something like $10. it has a great atmosphere with antique items, a sloped back ceiling and long beautiful bar. That long hallway is entrance definitely does get crowded though so be prepared to get there early if you're going for happy hour or otherwise don't bring a large crowd. food is good, bartenders make great drinks, their music is often great and certainly at a nice volume level and i do recommend Lillies. the lack of the fourth star was for the crowded legnthy hallway up front - it can really make or break your plan to be there.
Mid-town location great for after-theatre scene
Jacqui J. Sep 14, 2012
I’ve long been a fan of the brunch at Lillie’s in Union Square; I had a crab cake Eggs Benedict there that I still dream about. But now Lillie's now has a second location--249 West 49th Street--in the heart of Hell's Kitchen right near the theater district. For drinks or snacks after a show, you can't beat this location. The crowd is festive and energized, and the menu is reasonably priced, especially when compared to other Hell’s Kitchen spots. Plus, Lillie’s Times Square often plays host to some of Broadway’s finest: its not uncommon to see cast members from the show you’ve just seen kicking back after a night’s work.
