We Have Two Locations:

The Copper Still opened our first location in the East Village in 2014 and our second location in Chelsea in 2018.

With over 300 bottles of whiskey and sprits we know how to pour your favorite drink.

Combine that with an authentic Guinness pour and an update on classic pub food it's easy to call either location your new local.


The Copper Still was born out of the idea that the East Village and Chelsea need a family style Irish Pub with a great whiskey selection.

Mike, Shane and Brendan, the owners of The Copper Still, are all originally from Ireland and have been living and working in NYC for over 40 years combined.

Besides having a collection of over 300 whiskey's, including the evasive Pappy Van Winkle and other hard to find spirits, the food is an upscale take on classic pub food.

The kitchen is open late and brunch is served on the weekend with an option for unlimited bloody mary's or mimosa's.

A few kind words from Zagat, The Guardian and others:

I can’t say enough good things about the brunch! The food was delicious, and the unlimited drinks option is an excellent deal. Also I was blown away by the service here.

We are up to 200 whiskeys, because the demand is there. We were surprised and thought 80 was going to be more than enough. We never expected anything like this...
— The Guardian
“The Copper Still has already succeeded in its mission to bring Irish authenticity, and genuine community, to Chelsea.”
— Chelsea Now
This is the bar that Chelsea has desperately needed. It’s a chill place to grab drinks with neighborhood friends. Bartenders know what they’re doing, and it’s good space with reasonable prices.
