An upscale gastropub serving up gourmet pub fare alongside carefully crafted cocktails
About The District
Much ado has been made about the ambience at The District, an upscale gastropub and cocktail bar that mixes industrial and Edwardian touches. Mirrors and Edison light bulbs cover the ceiling, creating a starry-sky effect after the sun goes down, and a large accent wall hoists a stained-glass window and antique machine boxes.
Complementing the decor are bourbon cocktails inspired by old saloons and upscale pub eats, such as a brick-roasted half chicken and pumpkin ravioli. Mixologists here act more like perfumers than bartenders, balancing intricate craft cocktails with base, heart, and top notes. Take the Suffering Bastard, for example. Bulleit Bourbon anchors the concoction, while Beefeater London dry gin and bitters hold down the middle notes. Finally, a combination of lemon, ginger ale, and mint take flight, binging it all together.
The District takes its name from the one of the Upper East Side's unofficial monikers, the Silk-Stocking District. Back in the '30s and '40s, the affluent women who lived here were known for wearing only the finest fashions, including the luxurious silk stockings that gave the neighborhood its on-the-nose nickname. The gastropub's look might be too reminiscent of a factory for the old-school swans of the Upper East Side—especially since the bar is furnished with parts from actual factories—but it fits right in with the city's current dining scene.
