Third Avenue

Let P.J. Clarke’s Third Avenue host your next Private Affair in Sidecar, one of Manhattan’s most intimate dining rooms. The birthplace of Patrick Joseph Clarke and home to generations of his family, the exposed brick walls of the second floor tell a story of “speakeasy” gatherings. Carefully restored – its refreshed interior serves as New York’s best kept secret. Our private affairs menu is available for your selection, including the raw bar, canapés, and customized buffet options. And you’ll enjoy a dedicated wait staff who make sure your event goes off without a hitch. Whatever you need to make your moment a success, we’ll find a way to make it happen.

Sidecar Dining Room

Enter Sidecar through the private entrance on East 55th Street and the staircase delivers you to an intimate dining room. Featuring a stone-topped Osteria bar and exposed brick walls held up by reclaimed wood beam ceilings, our space is a quiet refuge for your private affair. Our soft leather banquets and Bank of England chairs retain its original speakeasy comfort. The understated elegance of Sidecar lends itself equally to boardroom dinners, holiday parties & wedding celebrations.
