Welcome to Ambrose Beer & Lobster

Located on the idyllic cobblestone corner of Fulton & Front Streets, Ambrose Beer and Lobster is a rustic chic craft beer hall, which embodies the look and feel of the historic downtown South Street Seaport. An ever-changing rotation of 12 seasonal and locally-sourced brews are served from two custom-built black iron tap towers in front of a curated selection of artisanal and small batch whiskey, scotch, bourbon, gin, and tequila offerings. The food menu specializes in all things lobster! Menu items consist of our famous Maine Lobster Roll, Fresh Lobster Salad, Lobster Grilled Cheese, Parmesan and Truffle Oil French Fries and more! Signature cocktails such as The Starboard, The Shipwreck and Jacobs Ladder round out the offerings with light, refreshing takes on vodka and rum.

Minimally designed to preserve the character of the historic Schermerhorn Row building, the bar features original concrete floors, as well as fully exposed timber columns and ceiling joists. Oriented so that patrons can enjoy the view of Front and Fulton Streets while seated, and constructed of raw materials such as reclaimed timber and steel, it invokes the industrial history of the building, while giving passing pedestrians an unconventional, backstage view of a working bar.
