First opening in 1960, DORRIAN’S RED HAND has been a staple of Manhattan’s Upper East Side for decades, dutifully serving delicious American fare and popular beers and cocktails to generations of neighbors, locals, and their families. In the 50+ years since it opened, DRH has expanded from a humble little corner bar serving loyal regulars to a fully-realized restaurant space with a closed in outdoor cafe and a smaller, intimate back room with its own bar. They are now a venue that can offer the comforts of a wonderful meal and tasty drinks to individuals as well as small parties. And they have proudly maintained that “old neighborhood” charm of Yorkville, while operating with current and modern tastes and sensibilities of today’s customers.
