It wasn’t easy, but you are finally going to see the show. Now: Where to eat and drink near the theater? Glad you asked!
EAT: Get in Character at Lillie’s
Weathered brick, velvet banquettes, gilded antiquities, and ornate wood carvings abound in this sophisticated Victorian spot, named for famed British actress and socialite Lillie Langtry. The Times Square branch—just a five-minute walk from the Richard Rodgers Theatre—boasts a highly palatable (and rib-sticking) shepherd’s pie that Alexander Hamilton himself likely would have ordered. 249 West 49th Street (between Broadway and Eighth Avenue), Midtown
DO: See Hamilton
Duh. Richard Rodgers Theatre, 226 West 46th Street (between Seventh and Eighth Avenues)
DRINK: At the Marvelous Midtown Watering Hole the Rum House
You’ll want to unwind and discuss Lin-Manuel Miranda’s singular genius after the show, and the old-school vibes at the Rum House are here for you. Sip an old-fashioned or dry martini in the perfectly lit bar made newly famous by a memorable scene in the Michael Keaton movie Birdman. 228 West 47th Street (between Broadway and Eighth Avenue)
