Tall Ships Bar & Grill was located at 3 World Trade Center/New York Marriott World Trade Center hotel, located between the Twin Towers. The bar had an exit from the hotel onto Liberty Street that proved to be a safe evacuation route on 9/11 for many tenants and hotel guests prior to the collapse of the South Tower.
