Referred to by many as a prohibition-style speakeasy, The Richardson is, put simply, a proper American bar. In addition to a wide selection of expertly-made cocktails, old-world wines & draft beers, the kitchen serves a charcuterie-centric food menu all day, every day, until the wee hours of the morn. The Richardson boasts plenty of seating & standing room - including an outdoor patio, as well as a semi-private event space - and can usually accommodate parties & groups with a simple email.
The cocktail list rotates a selection of both classics & house recipes. Fourteen draft beer selections consist of European classics & Northeastern U.S. specialties and our wine list is an ever-growing offering of reds, whites, pinks & bubbles. A point of pride, our spirit selection is the largest in the Greenpoint / Williamsburg neighborhood and we regularly feature hard to find amaros, eau de vies & American whiskies.
We believe the only way to prepare drinks is by using quality ingredients & traditional drink-making techniques. Juices are squeezed fresh daily, house liquors are premium brands selected for their quality and Manhattans are stirred… always. Our specialties are proper drinks & proper service – without attitude, pretense or fuss. Our motto is "not done fancy, just done right."
