Onieals is located directly opposite the old Police Headquarters that held legendary criminals from 1909 – 1973. Strangely, the Onieals building operated as a center for pleasurable crimes in such close proximity. Its former occupants include a brothel, a speakeasy and a gambling parlor. In the early part of the 20th century, the system was so corrupt that a tunnel was dug to connect the two buildings so that uniformed NYPD officers and officials could step across the street for some cheer undetected.Pull up a seat in the lounge or join us seven days for brunch, lunch, dinner or cocktails.
