A spot with killer atmosphere + a long history as one of NYC's oldest bars [THE oldest if you ask them].
Only light or dark ale [only] served in two glasses with plenty of seating in their back room.
What's the Deal?
One of the last "Men Only" pubs in NYC (even the female owner refused to step foot inside during open hours- a law suit forced them to open it to women in 1970 but their failed to add a female bathroom...), this Irish tavern is crawling with history. From the sawdust floors, to the old wooden bar, you're looking at decor that hasn't been changed in decades.
To order like a savvy local- just saw "light" or "dark" and don't be surprised when they stick two glasses in front of you.
You can visit McSorley's Old Ale House in the East Village, right off of the Astor station on the 6 Train.
