Cradled in the heart of the Upper East Side - you will find The Penrose, welcoming all who look for friendly company, good conversation, and solid drinks. We believe that a bar is what its patrons and community make it, which is why we serve true, locally sourced foods, well crafted brews, and drinks to please all.

The Penrose is a bar for all times. From its crisp porcelain tile flooring, to its reclaimed wooden interiors and exposed brick walls – The Penrose is a place without pretense. Our food, our drinks, our service and our space are inspired by old American and Cork traditions. We welcome all to come and feel at home in our bar, the Upper East Side Local.
