About Hurleys:

This NYC historical landmark in the heart of the theater district has been serving up suds and down home pub food since 1892, surviving prohibition by renting the front of its then Rockefeller Center facade to Greek florists, while the Hurley brothers ran a speak-easy in the back.

Hurley’s fame as the hold-out bar came from the 1930s when the Hurley brothers refused to sell the establishment to John Rockefeller when he was acquiring properties to build Rockefeller Center.  So the 6th Avenue facade of the 70 story RCA building was designed with a niche to accomodate the four story saloon at its base.

Recently the business moved to its new location where it continues its tradition of generous drinks and hearty food.
