bar & museum
A BAR, Museum, letterpress print shop, and private event space all-in-one

The Press Room is a bar, museum, letterpress print shop, and private event space all in-one. It is located within the Alamo Drafthouse Lower Manhattan, on floor 2B of the 28 Liberty building.

The Press Room displays selections from a vast archive of over 50,000 letterpress film advertising plates spanning the 1930s through the 1980s. But this collection will also come to life – The Press Room’s 1938 Vandercook letterpress will be inked and ready to be fired up for private events and classes for anyone wishing to learn the art of letterpress printing.

In addition to a tap wall of 48 draft beers, you'll be able to customize your own bespoke cocktail or chose from a list of original craft cocktails designed by Alamo Drafthouse’s Bar Manager Vince Favella.
