145 Bleecker St.
Peculier Pub New York City
The Home of the Beer
Peculier Pub was founded over thirty years ago during a time where most places in NYC were limited in the types of beer they sold. Our bar became the first beer bar in NYC, stocking hundreds of different beer from around the world in order to expand the appreciation of different brewing styles and regional specialities. Symbolic of the owner’s original desire to broaden the beer drinking experience of our customers, our name comes from a beer originating in England called Theakston’s ‘Old Peculier’, which was the owner’s favorite beer when he first opened the bar. This tradition continues with our stock of over 350 different beers in bottles and 27 beers on draught.
Ever wonder what’s with the old pew-like seats and stained glass windows? These are remnants of the bar prior to Peculier called Preachers. Peculier moved from a location on West 4th about twenty years ago (now ‘The Slaughtered Lamb’), keeping the lovely decor from Preachers. Want even more of a history lesson? Before Preachers, 145 Bleecker Street was a pub called “The Dug Out.” Before that…? A bible shop owned by two sisters. Overall, this location is over 100 years old! God bless this mess!
