Home of the Duane Street Hotel, Tribeca is one of the most artistically dense and historically vibrant neighborhoods in New York City. To get a true taste of this unique neighborhood, we recommend visiting a few local galleries — along with dining and drinking destinations, of course. For an especially memorable evening, construct your own Tribeca art crawl, complete with dinner, drinks and trips to some of the best art galleries in Tribeca.
Tribeca is packed full of delicious restaurants run by world-class chefs and restaurateurs. With all of the flavors and styles you could ever want, the options are plentiful.
One of our favorites is Sole di Capri, a cute and intimate Italian restaurant. The food is top-notch, with delicious entrees like Gnocchi with Asiago Cheese Sauce and Rigatoni with Lamb Ragu.
We’re also quite fond of Bouley. This specialty restaurant — located right on Duane Street — features a rotating menu crafted by the artistic mind of Chef David Bouley. Some examples of menu options include South Carolina Organic Rabbit Salad and Porcini Flan with Alaska Dungeness Crab and Black Truffle Dashi.
After dinner, grab a drink at one of the many great bars in Tribeca. Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs offers great cocktails in a dimly lit and cozy atmosphere. We’re also fans of Manhattan Proper for its large interior, strong drinks and reliably great service. Try one of these great spots or explore more of the many impressive bars in Tribeca before heading to the galleries.
A great place to start your exploration of Tribeca’s art galleries is One Art Space, a spacious and clean gallery constantly cycling through progressive and intriguing exhibitions. Sumo Tribeca is an equally impressive modern art gallery with two floors of space and the versatility to host work across a wide variety of mediums. Lastly, to mix in something different, be sure to swing by the Poster Museum, where you can browse and purchase incredible vintage posters.
With their close proximity, you can fit all of these galleries and more into your customized Tribeca art crawl!
