Fodor's Review

This former tavern, where General George Washington celebrated the end of the Revolutionary War in 1783, is now a museum covering two floors above a restaurant and bar. Here, in his pre-presidential days, Washington bid an emotional farewell to his officers upon the British evacuation of New York. Today, this historic landmark has two fully furnished period rooms—including the Long Room, site of Washington's address—and other modest displays of 18th- and 19th-century American history. These days, you'll find more tourists and Wall Street types than revolutionaries in the tavern and restaurant on the ground floor, but a cozy Colonial atmosphere and decent hearty meal are available.
