Our
Story

This neighborhood bar-restaurant occupies the site of a 1920s bank. The décor is inspired by nineteenth century Parisian establishments. Terra Cotta textured walls, brass metal archways, dimly lit chandelier’s, copper table tops & curved leather banquette seating create a unique and intimate setting.

Executive Chef John J. Loughran, formerly of River Café in Brooklyn, has created a menu that changes seasonally. Using the best of locally sourced ingredients, Chef John’s philosophy is to buy local and be creative. This is evident in every dish you taste at The Banc

Our cocktail program uses fresh fruit and other natural ingredients. A secondary Whiskey Bar located in what was once the bank vault provides an intimate space to host private events stocked with upwards of 100 whiskeys. Our outdoor café provides the largest terrace dining in Murray Hill and is open year-round, weather permitting. Live music is provided Thursdays & Sundays and there is never a cover charge.

We feel that tasty food & flavorful drinks provided with honest friendly service at an affordable price is a great way to win someone over. We hope that someone is you.

Enjoy!
