A new era officially begins tonight at 121 Essex St. as Sadie's Ward takes over from the Whiskey Ward here between Rivington and Delancey. 

Last fall, Whiskey Ward co-owner Sandee Wright decided that it was time to move on from the neighborhood bar after 24 years in service. 

The new owner, Stephanie Watkins, is a hospitality vet who served as the Whiskey War's bar manager.

You can find the Sadie's Ward website here. (And Instagram here.)

Oh, and you can read about the legend of Sadie "the Goat" Farrell here. Or the Comedy Central version here.
