Fresh Salt

Bar and Restaurant

Fresh Salt is a neighborhood bar & cafe located at 146 Beekman, between Front and South, near the old Fulton Fish Market.  The name comes from the faded advertisement on the front of the 1885 smokehouse we inhabit: “Fresh, Salt, and Smoked Fish.”  Since 2004 the bar has served as a refuge for an array of locals – from writers and start-up businesspeople with their laptops by day to musicians, restaurant workers, and even an occasional sailor or two by night.  With the area’s recent revitalization, the bar suddenly feels old-school, a remnant of the neighborhood’s past.  We’re proud to have been the last seaport bar the fish market’s workers called home.  New residents, escaping the tourist traffic on Fulton or Front, drop in for our signature sandwiches, soup, or the weekend brunch. They sidle up to the bar for comfortable conversation and good music – or for one of the best Bloody Mary’s in town.
