Ulysses Folk House does the name of the storied Greek hero justice. There is absolutely nothing dainty or frivolous about this Irish style pub located in the Financial District on Pearl street.
Whether populated by scores of young professionals looking to wind down after work over a cold brew, or herds friends and young couples joining together for a solid brunch, Ulysses Folk House is always a full house.
Dim lights, Hard-wood tab.Multiple televisions showing the days sporting events. All of these aesthetic and substantive attributes allow the Ulysses Folk house to take command of the Pearl Street scene with a show of solid force.
Instead of the head-throbbing house music and glossy interiors of the Meat Packing District, Ulysses gives its patrons Bruce Springsteen,Notorious BIG, or performances by live bands. Instead of $15 dollar cosmos that can be gripped with you pinky finger, Ulysses doles out $6 and $7 pints of standard beers on tap and over 40 different seasonal bottled beers. You see, Ulysses is an actual bar.
While many Financial District bars and restaurants on Pearl Street focus on one particular feature, whether it be food, ambiance, or beverage selection, Ulysses Folk House has managed the perfect equilibrium between all three.
It’s great reputation and energetic atmosphere has thus made this unassuming Financial District Bar the general of Pearl Street, guiding the hungry and the thirsty of Lower Manhattan.
