The Old Grapevine was a tavern in the Greenwich Village neighborbood of New York City at the corner of Sixth Avenue and 11th Street. The tavern was located in a three-story roadhouse built in the 18th century and was originally called the Hawthorne. It was later named after a grapevine that grew on one of its walls. It was a hangout for artists, actors, businessmen, lawyers, Confederate spies, and Union officers. The nearby Jefferson Market Courthouse attracted many politicians including US President Chester A. Arthur who visited the tavern many times. It was demolished in 1915.
