This is one of my favorite hangouts in the city. It is on of the mixology type places where your drinks come custom, well made and strong and not out of plastic bottle and stray nozzle. I have never had a bad drink there and it was always to taste. The atmosphere is more laid back chill and chat than... More

Met friends for drinks here before dinner nearby. Cool atmosphere, friendly staff, and delicious cocktails. I particularly enjoyed the Bebito - perfect mix of sweet pineapple, refreshing mint, and heat from the jalapeño. I would definitely return.

Ward III is a dark (though definitely not dingy) whiskey joint in Tribeca. We sought solace there after a moving afternoon at Ground Zero, and as none of us are whiskey drinkers, we found comfort in several bespoke libations such as Sex in The City (of course!) - a 'Wodka, Hibiscus, Lime, Strawberry, Sparkling Wine' concoction, The Moroccan - 'Orange-infused...

I stopped into Ward III with my siblings and their significant others before heading out to dinner in Tribeca, and was pleasantly surprised. We came in for a quick drink after we couldn't find seating at another nearby lounge. I almost missed the place, because there is only a very small sign outside the bar. Once we sat down we... More

Great menu of some very interesting concoctions. We tried the Moroccan and some other fun bourbon drinks. Great bartenders and a fun lively atmosphere.

Okay to be clear, this is a bar for Millennials. That said, I had the time of my life here one night. Lots and lots of dark amber lighting, which I love. A killer bar which made a killer bourbon drink for me. And a staff that completely reached out and made us feel at home rather than interlopers. Ended... More

A short walk from the finance district, this is a signature NYC bar for after work witj co-workers or friends. The martinis are good and the Cuban sandwich is generous and awesome. Casual atmosphere, good vibe. Go.

Went there early evening a couple of nights and really enjoyed it. The cocktails menu was great and they tasted so good. Great place to hang out as a group or couple and service was good.

A good bar is more than just a place to drink and eat, it is the center of a community that is anchored by the space itself and those involved in its creation. Ward III was founded in June of 2009 by journeymen bartenders who took their individual ideas of what makes a bar good and combined them to make something great.
The result is a beautiful amalgam of casual neighborhood watering hole, swanky cocktail den, serious whisk(e)y bar, and an all-around vibrant joint where the music is awesome, the service is genuine, and everyone is welcome.
Our full food & drink menu is available every night until 4am.
Stop in and say hi anytime you find yourself downtown. We look forward to serving you!

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighborhood Profile
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.
