THE LIBERTY NYC
The club room at The Liberty NYC has been home to New York Welsh since 2018. When the Sunken Hundred, the Welsh restaurant in Brooklyn, closed its doors the New York Welsh community needed a new home. Thankfully, the Haverfordwest-born Glenn Treacher, welcomed the community into his Midtown establishment with open arms.
The walls of the club room are adorned with memories and historical achievements of the Welsh community in New York. The murals have been created by local Welsh artist, Illtyd Barrett. All of this comes together to provide us with a new home away from home.
Once a month, New York Welsh holds meet-ups that are open to anyone with Welsh roots or simply an interest in Welsh or Celtic culture. We come together for the Six Nations, St. David’s Day during Wales Week in New York, and Dylan Thomas Day.
We also collaborate on specialized events with organizations like BAFTA Cymru, Rough Trade Records, the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and the Welsh Government.
