F resh Salt is a neighborhood bar and café located at 146 Beekman Street, between Front and South, near the old Fulton Fish Market. The name comes from the faded advertisement on the front of the 1885 smokehouse we inhabit: Fresh, Salt, and Smoked Fish”.
Since 2004, the bar has served as a refuge for an array of locals: from writers and start-ups on laptops, and office folks grabbing a tasty lunch by day, to musicians, artists, locals and even the occasional sailor or two by night. We are proud to have been the last Seaport bar the Fulton Fish Market workers called home. With the area’s recent revitalization, the bar now feels old-school, an homage to the neighborhoods history.
Fresh Salt was nearly destroyed in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Thanks to the amazing generosity and crowd sourcing of our friends, family and regulars, Fresh Salt was able to rebuild. The integrity and feel of the interior was maintained and even improved in some ways. Most people can’t pick out what’s different! We are proud to be a part of this close-knit community within the oldest neighborhood in New York. Fresh Salt is New York City’s local.
