Subway Inn

143 East 60th Street
New York, NY

Upper East Side

The Subway Inn opened in 1937 and closed in 2014. The bar was once descibed by The New York Times (July 24, 2014) as “an endearing dump of a saloon.” The building housing the bar has since been razed.

According to the Village Voice ( August 20, 2014 - “Judge Keeps Subway Inn’s Doors Open For Now”) it was the kind of the place where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio would stop by for a nightcap.” In it’s later years, It was one of the few places in the neighborhood to offer cheaply priced drinks. The Subway Inn attracted a loyal following of customers.
