McSorley's Old Ale House

McSorley's Old Ale House Review

One of New York's oldest saloons (it claims to have opened in 1854) and immortalized by New Yorker writer Joseph Mitchell, McSorley's is a must-visit for beer lovers, even if only two kinds of brew are served: McSorley's Light and McSorley's Dark. It's also essential for blarney lovers, and much friendlier to women than it was before the '80s. (The motto here once was "Good ale, raw onions, and no ladies.") Go early to avoid the down-the-block lines on Friday and Saturday night.
