Overview

Cook up a storm in Hell’s Kitchen as you drink your way around what was once notorious gangland territory on a city bar crawl.

Hell’s Kitchen played a prominent role in New York City’s underworld and its history is written in blood, brawls, violence and conflict. Hang out in the same bars that the gang-leaders, bootleggers and other criminals conducted their shady business and enjoy a drink as you listen to gritty tales from when the Irish mob ruled the streets.

Learn how the immigration influx of the 1950’s reignited gang violence and how such ethnic clashes inspired the Broadway hit, ‘West Side Story.’

On your journey, you will learn about the bad old days in Hell's Kitchen and hear stories of prominent figures on the New York crime scene – such as bootlegger Bill Dwyer, and gangster Owney Madden. Drink in Druids Bar, once the infamous headquarters of the Westies gang where you will hear about its bloody history as a crime scene for a string of brutal murders.

Gentrification has smoothed the rough edges of Hell's Kitchen but stories of its checkered past still abound. 

The area is close to the theater land of Broadway and has long been a playground for off-duty actors and other entertainers. On Times Square you will visit Caroline’s on Broadway, a premier comedy nightclub, and the Irish Playwright Celtic Pub. 

Your tour ends in a quintessential Hell’s Kitchen bar - Rudy’s Bar and Grill, famous for its super-cheap prices, great hell’s kitchen atmosphere and free hot dogs which are dished out with every drink.
