McSorley’s Old Ale House
15 E 7th New York, NY 10003
Step back to the late 19th century on a visit to the oldest Irish bar in New York, where newspaper articles cover the walls, the floors are covered in sawdust and Houdini’s handcuffs hang off the bar rail. Voted by the New York magazine as one of the ‘Top Five Historic Bars’ in New York City, word on the street is that even Abraham Lincoln used to grace this pub with his presence for a pint and a yarn. You may only be able to choose out of ‘light’ or ‘dark’ homemade beers, but these beers are considered to be some of the best around. A casual and fun ‘Olde New York’ historical drinking hole.
