Garfunkel & Tauster, speakeasy


Garfunkel’s
67 Clinton St,
New York, NY 10002
(212) 529-6900

A neat and cozy place on the second floor of a burger joint with little history (see below). I enjoy the ambient of the room: the throw looks very comfy; fresh flowers. However, the tableware can use an improvement so are the bits; they were served 1:45 later – we scheduled to be there for two hours. When I leave I saw the food on their counter – Gosh, unappetizing!

   

The speakeasy owes its name to the felonious private bankers-turned–criminal fugitives, Garfunkel & Tauster, who originally used the location as their corrupt bank firm in the 1920’s. To remind guests of the building’s exciting history, a functional bank vault door is used as the entrance into the wonderful Gatsby-esque speakeasy.

 

The SantaCon is in the area.
